This Week at NASA: Power Spacewalk, Maven First Light and More

During an October 15 spacewalk outside the International Space Station - the second U.S. spacewalk in as many weeks - Expedition 41 Flight Engineers Reid Wiseman and Barry Wilmore of NASA, replaced a failed voltage regulation device to restore the station's electrical power output to full capacity.

The pair also relocated camera and TV equipment as part of a major reconfiguration to accommodate new docking adapters for use by U.S. commercial crew spacecraft in the next few years. Also, MAVEN's "First Light", Hubble finds extremely distant galaxy, Possible bonus destination for New Horizons, New information about volcanic activity on our moon and more.
