STS109-708-092 (4 March 2002) --- Astronaut Richard M. Linnehan, STS-109 mission specialist, anchored on the end of the Space Shuttle Columbiaís Remote Manipulator System (RMS) robotic arm, unfolds a solar array during the missionís first scheduled session of extravehicular activity (EVA). Astronaut John M. Grunsfeld (out of frame), payload commander, works in tandem with Linnehan during the space walk to replace one of the two Hubble Space Telescopeís (HST) second-generation solar arrays, which is also known as SA2, and a Diode Box Assembly. The solar array was replaced with a new, third-generation solar array, which is called SA3. The space walkers also did some prep work for STS-109ís other sessions of extravehicular activity (EVA).
