Spacewalking astronauts wrapped up repairs to the International Space Station's Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) experiment Jan. 25. Andrew Morgan and Luca Parmitano spent six hours and 16 minutes outside the station completing repairs to the AMS cooling system they started on four earlier spacewalks in November and December. A coolant line initially showed signs of leaking, but astronauts confirmed that leak had stopped when a fitting was tightened. The two astronauts also replaced filters on two cameras mounted outside the station during the spacewalk.
