Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 36 Flight Engineer Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency fielded questions from Italian reporters during an in-flight media conference July 12. The questions focused on his work during a spacewalk outside the orbital laboratory with Flight Engineer Chris Cassidy of NASA on July 9. Parmitano became the first Italian astronaut to walk in space during the 6 hour, 7 minute excursion in which he and Cassidy replaced a failed KU-band communications controller, rigged cables for the future arrival of a Russian laboratory module and retrieved a pair of materials science experiments from the station's truss. It was the first spacewalk for Parmitano, who will venture outside the station with Cassidy again on July 16 for a second excursion aimed at assembly and maintenance tasks.
