Two Expedition 36 astronauts - Flight Engineers Chris Cassidy of NASA and Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency – successfully completed a 6-hour, 7-minute spacewalk at 2:09 p.m. EDT Tuesday. The pair completed the first of two planned July spacewalks to prepare the International Space Station for a new Russian module and perform additional installations on the station’s backbone. The pair handled a variety of maintenance tasks that had been “piling up for years,” and even managed to get a jump on the tasks planned for next week's spacewalk. (Image Credit: NASA)
