The first of three spacewalks in nine days by Commander Michael 
Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer Sunita Williams wrapped up Wednesday 
at 6:09 p.m. EST. During the 7-hour 55-minute excursion, the 
spacewalkers reconfigured one of two cooling loops for the Destiny 
module, rearranged electrical connections and secured the starboard 
radiator of the P6 truss after retraction.
