SUMMARY: Astronauts Carl Walz and Dan Bursch completed a 5-hour, 47-minute spacewalk outside the International Space Station today to prepare for the arrival of the space shuttle Atlantis - due to dock in April. During their time outside the station, the astronauts tested a new airlock, performed several maintenance tasks, and exposed themselves to space radiation for an experiment. This spacewalk was the first from the new Quest Airlock without the assistance of a visiting space shuttle; although, four more spacewalks are planned.
