Fuglesang to "Step Aside" For Other Astronauts

Published lördag 5 september 2009 kl 11.32

Swedish astronaut Christer Fuglesang held a press conference Saturday morning, from the International Space Station. Talking to journalists via a Tv-link, he said that he is "fantastically happy" about having been able to travel to space twice. He said that although he'd love to go up again, he would now stand aside and let others get the chance.

When asked about his latest spacewalk, where he had to install an 800kg ammonia tank, he said he was surprised at the manouverability of the object.

Fuglesang will make his 6th and final spacewalk Sunday, something he says he is looking forward to with a certain amount of sadness, as it would be the last time.
