Bresnik set up a brand-new radiator grapple bar and finished prep work for one of 2 extra pump modules on different stowage platforms to make it possible for simpler gain access to for prospective robotic replacement jobs in the future.

“He almost ended up preparation deal with the 2nd, however that work will be finished by future spacewalkers,” Whiting stated.
