spacewalk-concludes

After 4 hours and 13 minutes, today’s 200th spacewalk in support of the International Space Station officially concludes at 1:21 p.m. EDT. During their time working outside station, NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson and Jack Fischer were able to install a new avionics box that will supply electricity and data connections to science experiments. They also completed additional tasks to install a connector that will route data to the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, which detects and studies cosmic rays, as well as installed a protective shield on an external part of the station.
