Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer Suni Williams 
completed their spacewalk Sunday at 3:49 p.m. EST. This was the second 
of an unprecedented series of three spacewalks in nine days. Some of the 
tasks planned for this excursion were similar to those of the first 
spacewalk on Wednesday. They reconfigured the second of two cooling 
loops for the Destiny module, secured the aft radiator of the P6 truss 
after retraction and prepared the obsolete Early Ammonia Servicer for 
removal this summer.

At the conclusion of the third spacewalk from the Quest airlock on Feb. 
8 and a Russian spacewalk planned for Feb. 22, Lopez-Alegria will have 
completed his 10th spacewalk, an astronaut record. Williams will have a 
total of four, the most ever by a woman.
