NASA Astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria set a new U.S. spacewalking record during their third EVA in little more than a week. The stepped-up pace of work is meant to help bring the station to a point where more scientific research can be conducted, the crew can be expanded and new labors on other space-related missions can be conducted. If all goes well, by this time next year there will be six astronauts on board, rather than the three-person crew which has manned the station for several years now.
