Space Shuttle Endeavour's Final Space Walk

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Astronauts Robert Behnken (BENK'-en) and Nicholas Patrick are resting up for their third and final spacewalk of Endeavour's mission.

The pair spent Monday moving an old docking adapter to the
International Space Station's new room, Tranquility. There, it will
provide an extra parking spot for visiting ships and buffer against
micrometeorite hits.

While they were busy doing that, the crews of the shuttle and
the station were connecting power and data lines to the domed,
seven-window lookout.

Behnken and Patrick venture back out Tuesday night to unlock the shutters on the lookout's windows, which will allow their
colleagues to peel back the shutters and gaze at the Earth below.

Endeavour and its crew of six depart the space station Friday
after a visit of one and a-half weeks.
