Suni Williams and Aki Hoshide Set for Thursday Spacewalk

Expedition 33 astronauts Suni Williams and Aki Hoshide are getting set for an excursion outside the International Space Station to repair an ammonia leak in one of the station's radiators. The two spacewalkers will install jumpers to bypass the leak with a spare radiator already located on the station's truss. 

The spacewalk is set to begin at 8:15 a.m. EDT, with NASA TV coverage beginning at 7:15 a.m. EDT.
