Third Spacewalk Begins at 10:32 a.m. EDT

Space Shuttle

Wed, 22 Jul 2009 09:37:10 AM CDT

Spacewalkers Dave Wolf and Chris Cassidy began the STS-127 mission's third spacewalk about 30 minutes ahead of schedule, at 10:32 a.m. EDT.

Wolf and Cassidy first will remove multilayer insulation from the Kibo module and prepare the Japanese Exposed Section payloads for their transfer from the Exposed Section to the Exposed Facility on Thursday. Then they will focus on battery replacements. The space station power system is a photovoltaic system that gathers solar power and stores it in batteries. Wolf and Cassidy will replace four of six old batteries in one of the six station power channels, channel 2B. In preparation for the task, the old batteries have been drained and the electrical loads normally handled by 2B have been placed on different power channels.

Crews Successful with Robotic Arm Tasks

ISS Status Report

The Expedition 20 and STS-127 crews continued their joint operations Tuesday. The combined efforts of both crews were successful in installing the Japanese Logistics Module-Exposed Section using two robotic arms.

STS-127 Commander Mark Polansky and mission specialist Julie Payette operated the robotic arm aboard the space shuttle to pass the platform from Endeavour to Canadarm2 on the space station. Canadarm2 was operated by STS-127 mission specialist Koichi Wakata and shuttle pilot Doug Hurley.

The Japanese robotic arm on the station will be used Thursday to take experiments from that Exposed Section and install them on the new porch of the Kibo laboratory.

Questions...

Hi folks,

I'm a writer struggling to find the relevent infomation from the web. Wiki has helped to a certain extent, but I need more detail.

I'm writing a short-story about a USA space station some time (25 years or so) in the future. This is a zombie story for an anthology intitled, "Zombonauts", so it doesn't have to be too serious or plausable - I'd just like some facts. The USA station comes across an old Soviet station from the eighties, and wants to dock. An experiment took place on this station, one that went terribly wrong. USSR lost contact and it shut down, went off course, but remained somewhere in orbit.
