Preparations are underway to begin the first spacewalk of the mission at 9:18 a.m. Spacewalkers Mike Foreman and Robert L. Satcher, Jr. will tackle a host of maintenance tasks outside the International Space Station, including installing a spare communications antenna, routing cables and lubricating parts of the mobile base system and Kibo robotic arm.

The spacewalk will be the 228th conducted by U.S. astronauts in history, the 134th in support of space station assembly and maintenance, the fourth for Foreman and the first for Satcher.
