Patrick during EVA-3 on Expedition 22



Washington, DC, United States

ISS022-E-066885 (17 Feb. 2010) --- NASA astronaut Nicholas Patrick, STS-130 mission specialist, participates in the mission’s third and final session of extravehicular activity (EVA) as construction and maintenance continue on the International Space Station. During the five-hour, 48-minute spacewalk, Patrick and astronaut Robert Behnken (out of frame), mission specialist, completed all of their planned tasks, removing insulation blankets and removing launch restraint bolts from each of the Cupola’s seven windows. The Cupola had earlier been moved from the Shuttle’s payload bay to the nadir berthing port of Node 3. The Cupola will serve as an observation deck and control station for visiting space vehicles, and for the Canadian robotic arm.
