The first spacewalk in 2010.
16:40

On January 14, 2010 Russian cosmonauts Oleg Kotov and Maksim Surayev performed this year's first spacewalk.

Wearing Orlan-MK computerized spacesuits, the Russians connected cables between the Poisk and Zvezda modules, installed docking targets and Kurs aerials and attached additional handrails to exit hatches.

They also had to remove the Biorisk-MSN experiment container from the exterior of the ISS.

The container was in position for 30 months and will be returned to Earth in the spring to allow scientists to study the effects of space flight on microorganisms as part of research into the problems of ecological safety and planetary quarantine.

The EVA lasted 5 hours and 44 minutes.
