Endeavour crew taking fifth and final spacewalk

Astronauts Thomas Marshburn and Christopher Cassidy are suiting up for a planned six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk today to install two Japanese television cameras, to deploy a payload attachment mechanism, to fix the insulation on a Canadian robot and to re-wire two of the station's stabilizing gyroscopes.

This will be the 130th spacewalk devoted to station assembly and maintenance since construction began in 1998, the 11th so far this year and the fifth for Endeavour's crew. Going into today's EVA, total station spacewalk time stood at 805 hours and 42 minutes, or 33.6 days. Endeavour's total through four spacewalks was 25 hours and 36 minutes.

For identification, Marshburn, call sign EV-1, will be wearing a spacesuit with broken stripes around the legs. Cassidy, EV-2, will be wearing a suit with diagonal stripes.

The spacewalk was scheduled to begin around 8:28 a.m. EDT, but the crew was well ahead of schedule this morning and it likely will start earlier. The astronauts will split up after leaving the Quest airlock module, with Cassidy heading to an electrical distribution patch panel on the Z1 truss atop the central Unity module and Marshburn heading for Canada's Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator, a robotic "hand" designed for the space station's robotic arm.

"Basically what we're going to do (at the Z1 truss) is redistribute which power channels our four control moment gyros are fed from," said Flight Director Brian Smith. "Currently, two of those control moment gyros are fed off the same power channel. So if we were to have a failure on that power channel, we would lose both of those CMGs and that would put us in a very degraded and precarious position as far as non-propulsive attitude control of the space station. So we'll alleviate that risk by redistributing the power."

While Cassidy works at the Z1 patch panel, Marshburn will spend a moment adjusting the insulation on the Canadian SPDM robot, also known as DEXTRE.

"There's some MLI (multi-layer insulation) that's not seated quite right and we want to make sure that that's properly laid down and in place," Smith said. "There's going to be some commissioning activities with DEXTRE later on this fall and we'd like that MLI in the proper configuration for that. That'll be a very brief task, there's not much to it."

Now an hour and a half into the spacewalk, Cassidy and Marshburn will make their way to the Japanese Exposed Facility, a porch-like experiment platform attached to the Kibo laboratory module earlier in the mission to install two television cameras. The cameras are need the upcoming docking of a Japanese cargo craft in September and for normal experiment work on the JEF.

"These are television cameras that will be installed on the porch," Smith said. "They flew up in a launch configuration on the porch and the crew's going to go down, take them out of the launch configuration and put them in their permanent operational position. These should have been done on earlier EVAs but we'll pick them up now on this EVA.

"And then the last task in the timeline is deploying a payload attach system. This is a mechanism on the outside of the space station that you can attach carriers and other structures to. This one is located on the S3 (starboard-3) integrated truss segment. There are four of these attach mechanisms on S3 and currently, none of them are deployed. This will be the first one.

"It's located on S3 upper and outboard," Smith said. "This site is needed for STS-129, ULF-3, we'll be positioning an external logistics carrier, or ELC, onto that. That ELC will be loaded with critical spare ORUs for the space station."

Shuttle mission STS-129, scheduled for launch in November, will carry two ELCs into orbit, both loaded with critical spares to protect against failures after the shuttle program comes to an end next year.

ELC-1, which will be mounted on the left-side port-3 truss segment, will carry a solar array battery charge/discharge unit, a plasma contactor unit, a robot arm latching end effector, a control moment gyroscope, a nitrogen tank assembly, an ammonia tank assembly and a cooling system pump module.

ELC-2, which will be mounted on the starboard-3 truss attach mechanism being deployed today, will carry a high pressure gas tank, another control moment gyroscope, a pump module, a robot arm transporter umbilical system, experiment support equipment and flight attachment mechanisms.

If all goes well, today's spacewalk will end around 3 p.m. The Endeavour crew plans to undock from the space station Tuesday and to land Friday at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
