Astronauts Leave The Nest As Nervous NASA Looks On
After some delay caused by a stubborn airlock not used in three
years, astronauts William McArthur, Jr. and Cosmonaut Valery
Tokarev (file photo, below) left the International Space
Station Monday to install a massive camera and discard a
non-functioning probe -- all in the first spacewalk directed by
NASA since a cooling system glitch contaminated the US airlock and
the spacesuits inside in early 2002.
