A Far Reach
Pesquet stood on an extended foot restraint while servicing Dextre's latching end effector, or the "hand" at the end of the robotic arm.
Peggy Lends a Hand
As Pesquet worked on the space station's robotic arm from outside, flight engineer Peggy Whitson operated the arm from inside the space station.
Whitson operated the robotic arm from inside the space station, bringing it closer to Pesquet so he could add lubricant to the latching end effector.
A camera on the Dextre robotic arm grabs a great shot of Pesquet as he works to add lubricant to the latching end effector.
Pesquet & the BLT
Pesquet spent nearly 4 hours using a device called the ballscrew lubrication tool, or BLT, to inject grease into the latching end effector.
Pesquet performs a glove check while working on the space station's Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator, also known as Dextre, which is an extension of the Canadarm2 robotic arm.
Latching End Effector
Pesquet was tasked with adding lubricant to the Latching End Effector, the "hand" at the end of the Space Station Remote Manipulator System, otherwise known as Dextre.
The sun begins to rise at the International Space Station as Pesquet continues work on the robotic arm.
Kimbrough Gets Ahead
After completing his work at the Pressurized Mating Adapter, Kimbrough went to the Japanese Kibo module for a "get-ahead" task, in which he replaced two cameras that had broken lights.
Kimbrough at the Kibo Module
The lights Kimbrough removed will be replaced after the spacewalk by crewmembers inside the space station and can still be used in the future. Replacing them in the vacuum of space while wearing bulky EVA gloves isn't very practical.
