    Today (June 29), when requested about the most memorable times from this spacewalk for the duration of a media convention from aboard the space station, Behnken noted this check out as a single of these moments.

    “Chris and I experienced a wonderful party previous Friday and a superb see of Dragon,” Behnken said. “It was just brilliant to be in a position to seem back again and snap a photo and I feel we got a superior daylight shot that type of confirmed HTV and Dragon all out there on the entrance of space station. It was pretty amazing.”

    The pair stepped out for this spacewalk to swap out growing older nickel-hydrogen batteries for new, additional economical, smaller sized lithium-ion batteries as section of a sequence of battery swap spacewalks.

    When Behnken and Hurley, who assisted with the spacewalk from aboard the room station, continue being on orbit, Endeavour will go on to go by means of tests as the Demo-2 mission is a take a look at flight for the car. But, as Behnken explained right now in the course of the media conference, “our ship has executed seriously very well. I assume they’ve experienced a large amount of forecast[ion]s in conditions of how it would behave with respect to temperature, how it would behave with respect to radiation for the computers and electronics that is onboard. And that is seriously proceeded as anticipated.” 

    He extra that Endeavour’s positive efficiency has been “the point that really gives Doug and I continued self confidence in the vehicle.”
