Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 22 Flight Engineers Oleg Kotov and Max Suraev conducted a 5 hour, 44 minute spacewalk Jan. 14 to outfit the new Russian Poisk module for future dockings by Russian spacecraft at the orbiting laboratory. Kotov and Suraev set up rendezvous equipment and docking targets on the Poisk, setting the stage for the scheduled relocation
of the Soyuz TMA-16 spacecraft by Suraev and Station Commander Jeff Williams Jan. 21. They will fly the Soyuz from the aft end of the Zvezda Service Module for the maiden docking to the newly equipped Poisk.
