What else will the spacewalk accomplish bar looking bloody cool with the torch?
As per old plan, the installation of high-resolution camera UrtheCast on universal workplace URM-D on Zvezda module.

Thanks! And I agree. It's getting a lot of twitter activity.
Thanks to you and thanks to a member....I've added a few more associations I didn't see when researching...."The previous associations between the space program and the Olympic torch were seen during STS-101, when a replica of the Olympic torch was carried aboard Space Shuttle Atlantis. The torch relay also passed through the Kennedy Space Center, en-route to the Atlanta Games, ahead of STS-79's mission to MIR."
