Space station crew conduct spacewalk

Mosnews and other media are reporting that the crew of the international space station have conducted a spacewalk on Monday.

Leroy Chiao and Salizhan Sharipov floated outside the space station for the second time this year. They erected antennas for an upcoming cargo flight, and deployed a small satellite.

The station's interior was unoccupied while the two worked outside. They did not work on a circuit breaker that caused the shutdown of one of the station's gyroscopes. That task will be left for the next crew of the ISS.
