 March 10, 2001 - This video contains highlights of the first space walk of STS-102 performed by Astronauts Jim Voss and Susan Helms while Expedition Two Commander Yury Usachev received a briefing on the operations of the International Space Station. Pilot Jim Kelly set up the robotic arm controls that he and Mission Specialist Andy Thomas operated during the space walk and later operations to relocate Pressurized Mating Adapter 3. The space walkers unplugged power and data cables connected between PMA 3 and the Unity Module. Installation of the Lab Cradle Assembly by Voss and Helms followed. The space walkers continued with the installation of the Rigid Umbilical Assembly. Connection of the cabling was deferred to the second space walk due to time constraints. The video continues with highlights of the activities performed by Thomas to relocate Pressurized Mating Adapter 3 from the nadir, Earth-facing, port of Unity to the port side Common Berthing Mechanism on Unity. The space walkers re-entered the shuttle after Pressurized Mating Adapter 3 had been moved. Voss and Helms ended their space walk with it being the longest in space shuttle history at 8 hours and 56 minutes.
