Swedish Astronaut Completes Second Spacewalk

Published fredag 15 december 2006 kl 12.20

Christer Fuglesang, Sweden’s first astronaut, completed his second spacewalk on Thursday in the space shuttle Discovery’s 12-day mission to refurbish the International Space Station.

Along with Robert Curbeam, Fuglesang remained outside the ISS exactly five hours, rewiring the space station for a new solar array that will double its power output.

NASA said the astronauts completed all their tasks ahead of schedule. The potentially risky work involved shutting off the electricity to half the space station to prevent the astronauts from getting electrocuted.
