Two Russian cosmonauts living with Needham native Sunita Williams on the International Space Station completed last a 5-hour, 25-minute space walk last week with her help.
Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineer Oleg Kotov installed debris protection panels on the Russian side of the craft. They are scheduled for another space walk on Wednesday. Williams, who has conducted more spacewalks than any other woman, guided the first-time spacewalkers from inside the space station.
Williams has completed four spacewalks since arriving on the orbiting laboratory in December. She is currently preparing for her June 8 mission home.
