[b]Data, electrical cables removed, bolts loosened[/b]
Half way through their planned six hour spacewalk, Doug Wheelock and Tracy Caldwell Dyson have completed releasing five data and electrical cables and loosening the torque on four bolts holding the failed pump module in place.
Wheelock will now retrieve a grapple bar that will be used to move the pump module from its place on the truss to a payload bracket on the station's mobile base system.
Caldwell Dyson, after stowing the electrical and data connectors for their reconnection during Sunday's spacewalk, will start removing the pump module bolts.
