Two astronauts from the shuttle Endeavour floated outside the international space station Saturday afternoon on the final spacewalk of a marathon assembly mission. Mike Foreman and Bob Behnken had a list of tasks: a transfer of the Endeavour's 50-foot-long inspection boom to the station, an examination of a long hobbled mechanism that rotates electricity generating solar panels on the station's right side; and the installation of external science experiments. Saturday's outing, which got...

Two spacewalking astronauts, working outside the international space station late Thursday, wrapped up tests with a gooey repair material for damaged shuttle heat shielding that NASA hopes it never has to use. The testing was a milestone of sorts in NASA's efforts to rebound from the fatal 2003 breakup of the shuttle Columbia, a tragedy blamed on undetected breach of the thermal armoring. The pink caulk-like material offered few surprises as astronauts Mike Foreman and Bob Behnkensquirted it...

Dextre, a $209 million Canadian creation, was designed to take on some of the repair duties normally assigned to spacewalking astronauts. Astronauts Rick Linnehan and Mike Foreman transformed Dextre's pieces into a single gleaming 12-foot tall mechanism with outstretched arms and a menacing...
