Russian Cosmonauts Successfully Complete Spacewalk

Russia's crew members of the International Space Station, Gennady Padalka and Yury Malenchenko, completed a six-hour spacewalk having carried out all planned tasks.

      It was the first spacewalk of the current ISS 32nd expedition. It was initially delayed for 47 minutes due to some minor problems with transition hatches between the Pirs docking module and the Zvezda module. But then the cosmonauts completed it in six hours ahead of the scheduled almost 6.5 hours.

      In particular, they installed micrometeoroid debris shields on the exterior of the Zvezda service module and also launched a microsatellite and collected a number of bio specimens from the surface of a docking module as part of the scientific experiment Biorisk.

      Both Padalka and Malenchenko are very experienced in venturing outside the orbital station. It is the ninth spacewalk for Padalka and the fifth for Malenchenko in their space careers.
