Commander Mike Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer Suni Williams 
successfully completed a 6-hour, 40-minute spacewalk at 3:06 p.m. EST 
Thursday.

It was the last in an unprecedented series of three spacewalks in nine 
days from the Quest airlock. Major tasks of this spacewalk included 
removing and jettisoning two large shrouds and installation of 
attachments for cargo carriers.

Lopez-Alegria now has nine spacewalks totaling 61 hours, 22 minutes, 
putting him second on the all-time spacewalking list behind Russian 
cosmonaut Anatoly Solovyev.

Williams has completed four spacewalks with a total time of 29 hours, 17 
minutes, more than any other woman in history.
