ESA astronaut Christer Fuglesang, STS-128 mission specialist, in his mission's third and final spacewalk to construct and maintain the International Space Station. During the seven-hour, one-minute spacewalk, Christer and NASA astronaut John 'Danny' Olivas deployed the Payload Attachment System, replaced the Rate Gyro Assembly #2, installed two GPS antennae and prepared for the installation of Node 3 a year later. During connection of one of two sets of avionics cables for Node 3, one of the connectors could not be connected. This cable and connector were wrapped in a protective sleeve and kept safe. All other cables were mated successfully.
