Astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Mike Hopkins completed a 5 hour and 28 minute spacewalk Saturday to remove a faulty ammonia pump on the International Space Station. They wrapped up the spacewalk at 12:29 p.m. EST. A second spacewalk to install a replacement pump module, originally planned for Monday, is now scheduled for Tuesday, 24 December. The extra day will allow time for the crew to resize a spare spacesuit on the space station for use by Mastracchio. NASA TV will cover Tuesday's spacewalk beginning at 6:15 a.m. EST. The spacewalk is scheduled to begin at 7:10 a.m. (Image Credit: NASA)
