This Russian EVA is finally coming to an end. It's way past bedtime for the ISS crew, by the way (They work to UTC).

Cable connections for Icarus now complete. This has been troublesome and the EVA is behind schedule.

I keep losing track. They are still holding cables, however. And one hour behind the timeline.

The US Spacewalkers have the APFR (Articulating Portable Foot Restraint). The Russian's have "hold my leg" requests to their spacewalking buddy.

That time where you're busy working in space and someone's pointing a camera at you through a window.

Wouldn't be a spacewalk without a bunch of cables. Also, Zvezda's arrays are pretty.

Yeah, really hope they cover the FSS in those panels, as envisioned in the videos.

Next up, the installation of Germany's Icarus experiment . Icarus will pick up radio signals from taggers on birds and other animals, allowing their migration to be tracked

Wow, we didn't know what we had til we rolled back the tape. eclipsed by its own plume as it carries skyward. ...and then, the plume is backlit as the rocket pitches and accelerates towards orbit.
