Astronaut Uses A Digital Still Camera
Photograph - Photograph
An astronaut uses a digital still camera to take a self-portrait during a mission spacewalk. During the spacewalk, astronauts installed a spare S-band antenna structural assembly to the Z1 segment of the station's truss, or backbone, as well as installed a set of cables for a future space-to-ground antenna on the Destiny laboratory and replaced a handrail on the Unity node with a new bracket used to route an ammonia cable that will be needed for the Tranquility node when it is delivered next year. The two spacewalkers also repositioned a cable connector on Unity, checked S0 truss cable connections and lubricated latching snares on the Kibo robotic arm and the station's mobile base system.
