Astronauts repair space station's solar panels

Astronauts repair space station's solar panels
U.S. astronauts Peggy Whitson and Daniel Tani have finished their latest space walk outside the International Space Station. They spent around six hours outside the station repairing solar panels.

Russian cosmonaut, Yury Malenchenko, was helping the American crew.

The repair work was needed before the arrival of European and Japanese modules, Columbus and Kibo, to the ISS.
