Spacewalkers aboard the International Space Station (ISS) on Thursday succeeded in their task of clearing an antenna blockage by a matter of only two inches, photographs obtained by NASASpaceflight.com indicate.
Without their success, the undocking of a robot supply craft, which must occur in early April to clear the way for the arrival of the next permanent station crew, might have led to serious damage to the Russian end of the space station.
