Thermal cover is closed, spacewalkers are hooking up their Service and Cooling Umbilicals.

Pressurization in progress. Now (as of edit time) at 5 psi and holding for leak check.

Official start time given as 9:25 am Eastern, end time 3:28 pm Eastern, total spacewalk duration of 6 hours and 3 minutes.

Hatch is open, and Rubio and al Neyadi are shepherding Hoburg and Bowen back inside. (And someone needs to adjust the focus on this camera...)

Helmets are off, Hoburg looks very excited about the whole experience.

NASA TV coverage has wrapped up.

A huge thanks to Yellowstone10 and Targeteer for their coverage. I try to watch all the EVA’s but almost never have 8 hours available in real time so your written record really helps me catch up later. Very much appreciated.

Good view from Bowen's worksite of the boom end of the iROSAs with the deployment system rollers, with Crew Dragon Endeavour off to the left along with the Columbus module and Bartolomeo, and the SSRMS off to the right.

Also, Hoburg performed a get-ahead to retrieve a small piece of FOD off one of the magnets using the needle-nose pliers - he commented that the magnets are quite strong.

Do we know what this piece of FOD is and where it came from?
LEO is the ocean, not an island (let alone a continent). We create cruise liners to ride the oceans, not artificial islands in the middle of them. We need a physical place, which has physical resources, to make our future out there.

Very much seconded! I love following live events here (and learning from them: there are so many little yet extremely interesting things that run-of-the-mill press releases and news summaries don't catch, but awesome posters like the above catch and expand upon with their inquisitiveness), but my life has gained complexity lately and can't devote as much time to these pleasures as before... contributions such as these make up for it a fair amount though :) Thanks a lot!

Thanks - it's appreciated! If anyone wants to catch up after the fact, NASA's been pretty good about saving the streams on YouTube - here's the link for Friday's EVA:

I heard Houston talking to al Neyadi after the EVA, and they asked him to bag up the FOD and take pictures to send down for review. So I don't think they know quite yet - sounded like it was something small and metallic that got stuck to the magnet.

My first EVA (Extravehicular Activity) was an incredible life experience. The team in mission control @NASA_Johnson was superb. The 1A power channel is now 10kW more powerful. Looking forward to doing it again this week.
