Second Spacewalk Complete
Mission Specialists Philippe Perrin and Franklin Chang-Díaz continued the
on-orbit construction of the International Space Station during a
spacewalk Tuesday. The excursion, which ended at 3:20 p.m. CDT (2020
GMT), focused on the permanent attachment and the outfitting of the
Mobile Remote Servicer Base System, or MBS. They permanently bolted the
MBS to the Mobile Transporter and made power and data connections to the
new component. They also attached an auxiliary grapple fixture, added an
extension cable and relocated a television camera.

STS-111 Pilot Paul Lockhart coordinated spacewalk activities from inside
Space Shuttle Endeavour and Commander Ken Cockrell operated the orbiterís
robot arm. The extravehicular activity was the second of three scheduled
for STS-111, and it lasted exactly 5 hours. The third spacewalk is
scheduled for Thursday.

Meanwhile, the transfer of items from the station to the Leonardo
Multi-Purpose Logistics Module continued. Also, the Expedition Four and
Five crews continued handover activities.

STS-111 Status Report No. 13.
