A Helping Arm
June 24, 2009
Perched on the end of the Canadian-built remote manipulator system, astronaut Andrew Feustel, mission specialist, performs work on the Hubble Space Telescope as the first of five STS-125 spacewalks kicks off a week's work on the orbiting observatory. Feustel, teamed with astronaut John Grunsfeld (out of frame), will join the veteran spacewalker on two of the remaining four sessions of extravehicular activity later in the mission.
