Astronauts Complete Space Walk

Flight Engineers Suni Williams and Aki Hoshide completed their second spacewalk in less than a week at 1:34 p.m. EDT Wednesday.

They completed the installation of a Main Bus Switching Unit (MBSU) that was hampered last week by a possible misalignment and damaged threads where a bolt must be placed.

They also installed a camera on the International Space Station’s robotic arm, Canadarm2.
