SUMMARY: After being forced to turn back earlier this week because of an air leak, Mike Fincke and Gennady Padalka were able to complete their spacewalk on Wednesday. The two men spent 5 hours, 40 minutes outside the International Space Station, and they were able to install a new circuit breaker which restored power to one of the station's four gyroscopes. They completed the task an hour ahead of schedule, and controllers on the ground confirmed that the gyroscope had power and was functioning properly. This was the 29th spacewalk staged from the station.
