Crew of Space Station Fetches Projects Outside

From Times Wire Reports

The two residents of the International Space Station floated outside and collected a nearly life-size radiation-measuring doll and other science experiments from the exterior of their orbiting home, officials at Cape Canaveral said.

Cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev and astronaut John Phillips left the space station vacant to accomplish the job, with flight controllers keeping watch over the station systems from the ground.

Krikalev and Phillips retrieved bundles of research experiments that had been hanging on the outside of the complex for some time, so they could eventually be sent back to Earth. Some of the packages were replaced with fresh specimens.
