Maintenance spacewalk at Space Station.
On October 07, 2014 American astronaut Gregory Wiseman and German astronaut Alexander Gerst performed the spacewalk to move a failed ammonia pump module to an external stowage platform. The hatch of the Quest module was opened at 12:30 UTC. They also replaced a broken television camera light, used during spacecraft arrivals and departures, and installed a backup payload power system on the mobile transporter used to move the station's robot arm and attached equipment from one worksite to another. The EVA lasted 6 hours and 13 minutes.

Japan launched weather satellite.
On October 07, 2014 at 05:16 UTC the Japanese H-2A rocket-carrier was launched from Tanegashima Cosmodrome situated at the island located 115 km south of Kyushu. Kyushu is the third largest island of Japan and most southwesterly of its four main islands. The rocket orbited the “Himawari-8” next-generation geostationary meteorological satellite. Himawari-8 is expected to further support and improve meteorological services in a variety of fields such as weather forecasting, climate monitoring, natural disaster prevention and safe transportation. Built by Mitsubishi Electric Corp., the “Himawari-8” weighs about 3,500 kg.
