Duration Explanation
16 Oct 2000 14:15 7h 07m Lopez-Alegria and P.Wisoff; mission "STS-92"
Pressurized Mating Adapter 3 was installed on the Unity Connecting Module nadir port. The primary and secondary cable bundles were connected between the Pressurized Mating Adapter 3 and the Unity Module. Also, latches were opened on the Z1 Truss.
18 Oct 2000 15:00 6h 56m Lopez-Alegria and P.Wisoff; mission "STS-92"
A grapple fixture on the Z1 Truss was removed. The Z1 utility tray was deployed and its umbilical launch restraints released. The Z1 Manual Berthing Mechanism latches was cycled and opened. Wisoff and Lopez-Alegria performed one safety protocol test - a flight evaluation of SAFER, which means "simplified aid for EVA rescue".
26 Nov 2002 19:49 6h 45m Lopez-Alegria and Herrington; mission "STS-113". The 13th EVA from airlock Quest.
Hooking up connections between the P1 and S0 trusses and do other work and installations
28 Nov 2002 18:36 6h 10m Lopez-Alegria and J.Herrington; mission "STS-113". The 14th EVA from airlock Quest.
Installation of the fluid jumpers where the S0 and the P1 are attached to each other, removal of the P1′s starboard keel pin and relocation of the CETA cart from the P1 to the S1 Truss, which will allow the Mobile Transporter to move along the P1 to assist in upcoming assembly mission.
30 Nov 2002 19:25 7h 00m Lopez-Alegria and J.Herrington; mission "STS-113". The 15th EVA from airlock Quest.
Installation of more SPD′s (Spool Positioning Devices), reconfiguration of electrical har-nesses that route power through the Main Bus Switching Units and attaching Ammonia Tank Assembly lines.
23 Nov 2006 00:17 5h 38m M.Tyurin and Lopez-Alegria; expedition ISS-14. The 19th EVA from airlock Pirs.
Retrieving equipment and photograph the station′s Russian Zvezda Service Module′s docking port, Tyurin also hit a golf ball from a specially designed tee mounted on the Pirs airlock as part of a Russian commercial activity
31 Jan 2007 15:14 7h 55m Lopez-Alegria and S.Williams; expedition ISS-14. The 30th EVA from airlock Quest.
Completing the activation of the lab complex′s permanent ammonia cooling system. They made several of electrical and fluid line connections to tie the heat exchangers into coolant loop A; Most of the work was carried out in the so-called "rat′s nest," a confined area between the Destiny laboratory module, the Unity connecting module and the Z1 truss that extends upward and supports the P6 solar array that provided the station′s interim power.
04 Feb 2007 13:38 7h 11m Lopez-Alegria and S.Williams; expedition ISS-14. The 31st EVA from airlock Quest.
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; several of the tasks were similar to those of the previous spacewalk
08 Feb 2007 13:26 6h 40m Lopez-Alegria and S.Williams; expedition ISS-14. The 32nd EVA from airlock Quest.
Removing shrouds, which provide thermal shading and which are larger than king-size bed sheets; they also made groundwork for attachment of a cargo carrier and preparing work for the relocation of the P6 Truss
22 Feb 2007 10:27 6h 18m M.Tyurin and Lopez-Alegria; expedition ISS-14. The 20th EVA from airlock Pirs.
Successful attempt to free a stuck antenna on the ISS Progress M-58 cargo craft docked at the aft end of the station. They also surveyed docking navigation systems for the European Automated Transfer Vehicle.
Total: 67h 40m EVAs: 10
