[b]Failed pump module stowed on payload bracket[/b]
Riding the station's Canadarm2 robotic arm as controlled from inside the space station by Shannon Walker, spacewalker Doug Wheelock carried the 780 pound, failed pump module from the station's truss from where it was removed to a payload bracket on the mobile base system.
The module was installed on the stowage platform at 12:55 p.m. CDT, five hours and 28 minutes into today's spacewalk.
Wheelock is now joining Tracy Caldwell Dyson at External Stowage Platform 2, adjacent to the Quest airlock, to prepare the replacement pump module, setting the stage for its removal and installation during Sunday's spacewalk.
