Success! With a bit of strength and skill, @Astro_illini removed the H-fixture from the @Space_Station, opening the slot for future solar array system upgrades. Now, he and @AstroVicGlover are returning to the airlock to wrap up today's spacewalk.

The spacewalkers are nearing the end of today's spacewalk after installing a science antenna and prepping the station for solar array upgrades. #AskNASA |
