* Expedition 10 Completes First Spacewalk 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/spacenews/reports/issreports/2005/iss05-4.html>*
Expedition 10ís first spacewalk 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/crew/exp10/eva/index.html> is now 
in the history books. Commander Leroy Chiao and Flight Engineer Salizhan 
Sharipov successfully completed the 5-hour, 28-minute excursion at 7:11 
a.m. CST (1311 GMT) when they closed the Pirs Docking Compartment hatch.

While outside the International Space Station, Chiao and Sharipov 
installed a work platform, called the Universal Work Platform, along 
with its base and associated wiring. They also installed a commercial 
robotics experiment and a biological experiment on the exterior of the 
Zvezda Service Module. In addition, they checked vents on systems that 
help control the Stationís atmosphere and relocated a Japanese physical 
science experiment.

This was the 57th spacewalk conducted at the Station and the 32nd to be 
based out of the orbital outpost. Expedition 10 is scheduled to conduct 
its second spacewalk in March.
