Fuglesang Has Camera Trouble In Space

Published söndag 6 september 2009 kl 12.58
Astronauts Christer Fuglesang and Danny Olivas and their second space walk<br><p>

Swedish Astronaut Christer Fuglesang has completed his second, and final spacewalk of this mission. The walk took 7 hours, and included installing two GPS antennas.

During the mission the video camera installed on top of Fuglesang's helmet came loose, forcing colleague Danny Olivas to detach it.

The camera also had a flashlight installed, which meant that Fuglesang then had to work with less light than usual. Nasa say the walk was a success, however.

Fuglesang is Sweden's first ever astronaut and this is his second trip to space, Swedish Radio also reports that he is the first non-American or Russian to make more than 3 spacewalks.

He's expected to return to Earth on the space shuttle Discovery on Thursday.
