Russian cosmonauts performed a spacewalk.
21:26
On November 15, 2010 Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Skripochka performed a spacewalk.
The cosmonauts left the ISS via the "Pirs” docking compartment airlock. The primary assembly and maintenance objectives of the spacewalk were to install a multipurpose workstation on the starboard side of the Zvezda service module, to clean thermal insulation around the vents for the Elektron oxygen-generation system and to relocate a television camera from one end of the Rassvet docking compartment to the other.
