astronauts changed out four of the six 375-pound batteries on the International
Space Station’s port 6 truss. After the battery work and cleanup of the area,
the spacewalkers moved on to the new backup Ku band antenna on the Z1 truss. They
removed launch latches, leaving the antenna ready to operate. It was the fifth EVA
for Bowen and the third EVA for Good.
