Description

STS-114 astronaut Soichi Noguchi waves from the payload bay of the Space Shuttle Discovery, backdropped by the Earth below. During the mission's second spacewalk, Noguchi and Discovery crewmate Steve Robinson replaced a failed gyroscope which keeps the International Space Station in the proper position in orbit. Robinson used the mission's third spacewalk on 2 August to remove two gap fillers that were protruding from areas between heat-shielding tiles on Discovery's underbelly.
