crew will perform three spacewalks, which are also known as extravehicular
activities, to continue the assembly of the International Space
Station. All three extravehicular activities, or EVAs, will be based
out of the station's Quest Airlock.

STS-111's first spacewalk, Chang-Díaz
and Perrin attached a Power and Data Grapple Fixture onto the International
Space Station's P6 Truss, setting the stage for the future relocation
of the P6. The next major task was to remove Service Module Debris
Panels from Space Shuttle Endeavour's payload bay and attach them
to their temporary location on Pressurized Mating Adapter 1. The
shields will be installed onto the Zvezda Service Module later by
station crewmembers. Then, the spacewalkers removed thermal blankets
to prepare the Mobile Base System, or MBS, for installation onto
the station's Mobile Transporter. The station's robot arm, Canadarm2,
lifted the MBS out of the payload bay after Chang-Díaz
and Perrin finished. The MBS was attached to the Mobile Transporter
on Flight Day 6.

STS-111 spacewalk focused on outfitting and permanently attaching
the MBS to the MT. Chang-Díaz
attached power, data and video cables from the station to the MBS.
Then, they used a power wrench to complete the attachment of the
MBS onto the MT.

wrist roll joint was replaced during STS-111's third spacewalk.
After replacing the joint on the arm, the spacewalkers stowed the
old joint in Endeavour's payload bay for the journey home.
