A Spacewalker’s View: Astronaut Reid Wiseman of NASA and Alexander Gerst of ESA ended today’s spacewalk at 2:43 p.m. EDT. They installed a degraded pump module on an external stowage platform and an electrical relay system that will provide backup power to the Mobile Transporter, which can move supplies on rails along the station’s backbone, and the space station’s robotic arm, Canadarm2. Wiseman and Gerst now have spent 6 hours and 13 minutes in space. Wiseman and NASA’s Barry «Butch» Wilmore are scheduled to conduct another spacewalk on Oct. 15.
Wiseman posted this image to Twitter and wrote, «The view was reasonably INSANE during the #spacewalk.» Image Credit: NASA
