Atlantis Astronauts Go for a Spacewalk
Veteran spacewalker Mike Foreman and rookie astronaut Bobby Satcher exited the International Space Station at 9:18 a.m. EST. The two NASA spaceflyers are slated to spend  6 1/2 hours in space to install a spare antenna and complete other station maintenance tasks. "To go outside — and it's a great view from inside the shuttle — but outside with just your helmet and that visor in front of you, and panoramic view of the Earth and the heavens, it's just amazing," Foreman said of spacewalking, during a preflight interview.
