Astronauts wrap up last spacewalk

Times Wire Reports

Astronauts successfully carried out one last spacewalk, finishing an unprecedented clean and lube job that they began a week ago at the International Space Station.

Spacewalker Stephen Bowen wrapped up work on a jammed solar-wing rotary joint as partner Shane Kimbrough squirted extra grease as a precaution on another joint.

NASA added a 16th day to space shuttle Endeavour’s mission. Managers wanted to give the astronauts more time to fix a machine that’s supposed to turn urine into drinking water.
