STS-106 Extravehicular Activities

During docked operations, Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko and American Astronaut Ed Lu performed one space walk, which is an extravehicular activity. An astronaut operating the Shuttle Remote Manipulator System supported the extravehicular activity, or EVA, astronauts.

Space walkers integrated the recently docked Russian Zvezda Service Module with the rest of the International Space Station. The robot arm assisted them with transferring equipment from the shuttle payload bay to the Zarya Control Module. The crew then translated to the Zvezda where they assembled a magnetometer boom. Nine power, data and communications cables were routed and connected between Zarya and Zvezda.
