Christer Fuglesang waves to the camera during his second space walk

Another walk for Sweden’s Spaceman

Sweden’s first-ever astronaut is making a third and final walk on the international space station.

NASA has ordered the unscheduled mission to try to fix problems with a solar panel, but Christer Fuglesang and his American colleague, Robert Curbeam, will have to improvise.

They are expected to be back on earth in time for Christmas, with a target landing of 3:55 p.m. CST on Friday, at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.
