The successful spacewalk was carried out by astronauts Michael Fossum and Ronald Garan Jr.

Overall, the spacewalk went extremely smooth as astronauts replaced an empty fuel tank, as well as collected debris among other things.

The spacewalk went so smoothly that Mission Control added tasks to the six-hour walk.

The pinnacle of the spacewalk was when Garan hopped on a robot arm carrying an empty nitrogen gas tank, going from one end of the ISS to the other, and the coming back with a full replacement tank.
