Five crewmembers conducted two spacewalks during their stay
at the International Space Station. Both were based out of the Pirs

Actual time: 4 hours, 25 minutes
Actual start time: 4:23 a.m. CDT (0923 GMT) Aug. 16, 2002
Actual end time: 8:48 a.m. CDT (1348 GMT) Aug. 16, 2002
Whitson installed six debris panels onto the Zvezda Service Module.
They removed the panels from their temporary location on the station's
Pressurized Mating Adapter 1 prior to attachment to Zvezda. The
panels are designed to shield Zvezda from potential space debris
impacts. A total of 23 shields will eventually be installed onto
the Service Module.
Whitson were scheduled to install new hardware on the Russian Kromka
experiment, but due to the late start of the spacewalk, Russian
flight controllers decided to move the task to a future extravehicular
activity. Kromka measures residue emissions from Zvezda's jet thrusters.
This was the
42nd station spacewalk and the 17th based from the orbital outpost.

Five's second spacewalk, Korzun and Treschev installed a frame on
the outside of the Zarya Module to house components for future spacewalk
assembly tasks. They installed new material samples on a pair of
Japanese Space Agency materials exposure experiments housed on the
outside of Zvezda. Korzun and Treschev also installed devices on
Zvezda that will simplify the routing of tethers during future assembly
spacewalks. They improved future station amateur radio operations
by adding two ham radio antennas on Zvezda.
and Treschev installed the Kromka hardware that was originally slated
to take place during Expedition Five's first spacewalk. Kromka measures
residue emissions from Zvezda's jet thrusters.
This was the
43rd station spacewalk and the 18th based from the orbital outpost.
