[b]Fluid lines mated to replacement pump[/b]
At 9:41 a.m. CDT, four hours and 21 minutes into today's spacewalk, Doug Wheelock and Tracy Caldwell Dyson completed mating the four quick disconnect lines that will feed ammonia into the replacement pump module.
The fluid lines are the same that they removed from the failed pump module on previous spacewalks, but unlike their earlier experience, the astronauts encountered no issues with mating each connector.
Before they began installing the fluid lines, flight controllers confirmed that the pump module is in healthy condition after being delivered to the space station four years ago.
