ISS EVA on 2014 October 7 (NASA Two astronauts performed a six-hour spacewalk outside the International Space Station on Tuesday, completing all the major tasks planned for the EVA. NASA's Reid Wiseman and ESA's Alexander Gerst spent 6 hours and 13 minutes outside the station on the first of two planned spacewalks from the station's US segment this month. The two moved a failed coolant pump from a temporary stowage location on the station's truss to a platform outside the Quest airlock. The two performed other repairs outside the station, including the installation of a unit on the station's mobile servicing system platform to keep it powered as it moves between sites. Wiseman and fellow NASA astronaut Barry Wilmore will perform a second EVA on October 15 to replace a faulty power unit and prepare for an upcoming reconfiguration of station docking equipment. Two Russian cosmonauts will perform a spacewalk on October 22.
