The Shuttle Mission's Final Spacewalk: Ron Garan outside the Atlantis
The Shuttle Era’s Final Spacewalk
Spacewalker Ron Garan rides on the International Space Station's robotic arm as he transfers a failed pump module to the cargo bay of space shuttle Atlantis. Garan and fellow Expedition 28 astronaut Mike Fossum wrapped up a six-hour, 31-minute spacewalk Tuesday afternoon, July 12, performing upgrades and maintenance on the orbiting outpost. It's the final scheduled spacewalk during a shuttle mission.
