First spacewalk of 2010

The first spacewalk of the year is underway at the International Space Station with Russian cosmonauts installing new equipment.

Oleg Kotov and Maksim Surayev are putting in new docking gear and aerials.

The cosmonauts are wearing new computer-equipped spacesuits.

They plan to conduct scientific experiments to find out how different organisms cope with severe conditions in space.
