Fuglesang’s Third Space Walk

Published tisdag 19 december 2006 kl 12.13

Sweden’s first astronaut, Christer Fuglesang, and his Discovery shuttle crewmate Robert Curbeam successfully unstuck a balky solar array on the International Space Station Monday.

The space walk was Fuglesang’s third of the mission, and Curbeam’s record-breaking fourth. Unlike the previous space walks, which were rehearsed over and over again before the mission, the final one was improvised. NASA has expected the attempt to take around four and a half hours, but it took 6 hours and 38 minutes.

The extra space walk has extended Discovery’s flight by a day, and landing is now expected Friday.
