First Spacewalk Successful for Drew, Bowen

The first EVA of STS-133 was completed on Flight Day 5 by astronauts Steve Bowen and Al Drew. The two installed equipment on numerous positions outside the International Space Station, including a power extension cable between the Unity and Tranquility nodes to provide a contingency power source. NASA selected Bowen to replace mission specialist Tim Kopra, who was injured in a bicycle accident. Bowen will perform two spacewalks on this mission. He is the first U.S. astronaut to fly on back-to-back missions; he was a mission specialist on STS-132, which flew in May 2010.
