TO VIEW PICTURE GO TO:http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/main/index.html Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer Suni Williams are preparing for the second of an unprecedented series of spacewalks Sunday at 9 a.m. EST. Some of the tasks planned for this excursion are similar to those of the first spacewalk on Wednesday: reconfiguring the second of two cooling loops for the Destiny module, securing the aft radiator of the P6 truss after retraction and preparing the obsolete Early Ammonia Servicer for removal this summer.
Live NASA TV coverage of Sunday's spacewalk begins at 8 a.m.
At the conclusion of the third spacewalk from the Quest airlock on Feb. 8 and a Russian spacewalk planned for Feb. 22, Lopez-Alegria will have completed his 10th spacewalk, an astronaut record. Williams will have a total of four, the most ever by a woman.
