STS-117 Flight Day 4

Astronauts Jim Reilly and John “Danny” Olivas, both STS-117 mission specialists, participate in the mission’s first planned session of extravehicular activity (EVA), as construction continues on the International Space Station. Among other tasks, Reilly and Olivas connected power, data and cooling cables between S1 and S3; released the launch restraints from and deployed the four solar array blanket boxes on S4 and released the cinches and winches holding the photovoltaic radiator on S4.

Whenever I see them poking into the truss I always imagine a cartoon bear rummaging through a fridge.  WHO ATE MY FROOT LOOPS!?
