(NASA) – Astronauts Ron Garan and Mike Fossum perform tasks during the STS-124’s mission’s third scheduled spacewalk as construction and maintenance continue on the International Space Station.

During the six-hour, 33-minute spacewalk, Fossum and Garan exchanged a depleted Nitrogen Tank Assembly for a new one, removed thermal covers and launch locks from the Kibo laboratory, reinstalled a repaired television camera onto the space station’s left P1 truss and retrieved samples of a dust-like substance from the left Solar Alpha Rotary Joint for analysis by experts on the ground.
