Expedition 36 Flight Engineers Fyodor Yurchikhin and Alexander Misurkin completed a 6-hour, 34-minute spacewalk at 4:06 p.m. EDT Monday when they closed the hatch to the International Space Stationís Pirs docking compartment.

The spacewalk began at 9:32 a.m. when the hatch to the Pirs docking compartment was opened.

Yurchikhin and Misurkin conducted the excursion to prepare for the addition of a new Russian module later this year.

I thought it was finished.  Guess it shows the strength of being modular.

I am a mormon.  If I don't use mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the mormon faith. Thank for careing and if you don't peace be with you.

It's finished if you listen to NASA. The Russian side still has modules to be added.
