Shuttle crew to take close-up look at damaged tile
The levels were probably not too high, but controllers told Chamitoff and spacewalking partner Drew Feustel not to finish installing an antenna on the space station because it would take too much time.
In the end, the spacewalk was 11 minutes shorter than planned. Feustel and Chamitoff installed a light fixture and swapped out some experiments parked outside the space station.
This was the first spacewalk for Chamitoff. He called it “a dream come true for me.”
Endeavour’s astronauts will make four spacewalks while docked at the space station.
NASA approved a first-of-its-kind maneuver on Monday for a photo op when a Russian Soyuz capsule undocks from the space station with three astronauts aboard. The capsule will back away to about 600 feet and stop. Then the station will slowly rotate so the Soyuz can get rare photos of the shuttle docked to the station from different angles and from another spaceship.
Delivered by Endeavour and added to the space station on Thursday was a $2 billion physics experiment that looks for antimatter and dark matter. Saturday, the two crews will get an unprecedented VIP call _ Pope Benedict XVI will make the first papal call to space.
