Approximately 2 hours, 40 minutes into today’s spacewalk, astronaut Alexander Gerst, assisted by Reid Wiseman, installed the failed pump module on External Stowage Platform-2 on the Quest airlock. The crew will clean up their worksite and move ahead to their tasks, including replacing a camera light on the Destiny module, and installing an electrical relay system to provide backup power to the Mobile Transporter and Canadarm2.
