Space station astronauts take spacewalk to install cameras

Two astronauts floated outside the International Space Station Thursday to install two new cameras on the front of the lab complex that will provide views of commercial crew ships during final approach and docking. The spacewalkers also planned to replace a faulty high-definition camera and close a door that is jammed open on an external instrument.

Floating in the Quest airlock, Expedition 56 commander Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold switched their spacesuits to battery power at 8:06 a.m. EDT (GMT-4), officially kicking off a planned six-and-a-half-hour excursion.

This is the 211th spacewalk devoted to station assembly and maintenance since construction began in 1998, the sixth so far this year, the ninth for Feustel and the fifth for Arnold. Both men carried out two earlier spacewalks together in March and May.
