STS-129 – the 2nd EVA.
20:05
On November 21, 2009 American astronauts Michael Foreman and Randolph Bresnik performed a successful six-hour and eight-minute spacewalk.
 The spacewalkers left the station at 14:31 UTC and returned back at 20:39 UTC.
 Foreman and Bresnik completed all of their planned work with no major problems and had enough time to complete a variety of get-ahead tasks, including deployment of a final payload attachment mechanism that had been planned for the crew's final spacewalk.
 The astronauts installed an antenna assembly on the station's Columbus lab module, relocated a device that measures the electrical environment around the lab complex, deployed one of two remaining payload attachment mechanisms and installed an external television antenna to complete the planned objectives of the spacewalk.
 Foreman was making his fifth spacewalk while Bresnik was making his first.
