ISS016-E-029502 (15 Feb. 2008) --- Astronaut Rex Walheim, mission specialist, holds onto a handrail and spreads his arms at the Columbus laboratory, the newest piece of hardware on the International Space Station. On this the final spacewalk for the STS-122 Atlantis crew, Walheim's pose is reminiscent of that of a musical conductor who has just completed leading a successful concert. Stanley Love (out of frame), mission specialist, shared this extravehicular activity with Walheim.
