International Space Station crewmembers Sergei Krikalyov and John Phillips made a successful spacewalk
International Space Station (ISS) crewmembers Sergei Krikalyov and John Phillips made a successful spacewalk, a spokesman for Russia's Mission Control Center in Korolyov, the Moscow region, said Friday. The astronauts returned to the ISS early when they gave up dismantling an adaptor in a unit of the Zarya space module. "The crew managed to mount a remote camera, which was designed to control the docking of the new European cargo spacecraft Jules Verne, and to dismantle the sensors of the Russian-German 'Matryoshka' research dummy," the spokesman said. The astronauts brought Japanese containers, which had been exposed to solar radiation for a long time, back to the station. The astronauts also completed a stage of an important Russian experiment, Biorisk, bringing back with them samples of biological materials that had been exposed in space for further research on Earth. The crew used Orlan-M pressure suits. The station remained unmanned during the spacewalk
