During the spacewalk, Kotov and cosmonaut Maxim Suraev (out of frame) prepared the Mini-Research Module 2 (MRM2), known as Poisk, for future Russian vehicle dockings. Suraev and Expedition 22 commander Jeffrey Williams were the first to use the new docking port when they relocated their Soyuz TMA-16 spacecraft from the aft port of the Zvezda Service Module on Jan. 21.
