Commander Mike Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer Suni Williams will make 
the last of three spacewalks in nine days on Feb. 8. They will begin by 
removing shrouds. The shrouds, larger than king-size bed sheets, provide 
thermal shading. The pair will also lay the groundwork for attachment of 
a cargo carrier and prepare for the relocation of the P6 Truss during a 
subsequent shuttle mission.

By the end of the spacewalk Lopez-Alegria will be in second place for 
the most spacewalk time by an American astronaut.
