ISS EVA on 2014 October 22 (NASA) Two Russian cosmonauts worked quickly on a spacewalk outside the International Space Station on Wednesday, completing their tasks well ahead of schedule. Max Suraev and Alexander Samokutyaev spent 3 hours and 38 minutes outside the ISS, completing their EVA at 1:06 pm EDT (1706 GMT), more than two hours ahead of schedule. The two removed the Radiometriya experiment from the exterior of the Zvezda module and checked on other experiments there. The two also removed a pair of antennas from the exterior of the Pirs module no longer needed for spacecraft rendezvous activities. The spacewalk was the third outside the ISS this month, after two spacewalks earlier this month from the US segment. The spacewalk was also the last scheduled EVA at the station for this year.
