Posted August. 03, 2005 03:05,   


Steve Robinson, an American astronaut on the Discovery orbiter that successfully docked at the International Space Station (ISS), is performing operations inside the space shuttle’s cargo compartment during a spacewalk conducted on August 1. It will mark the first time an astronaut has been sent under an orbiting space shuttle to make repairs. This photo was taken from a camera attached to the helmet of Japanese Mission Specialist Soichi Noguchi, who accompanied Robinson during the orbital stroll.
