The US astronauts conducted the last spacewalk of the NASA shuttle programme.


A pair of spacewalking astronauts floated outside the International Space Station to pack up a broken cooling pump and tackle other tasks before NASA s last space shuttle heads back to Earth.


Space station flight engineers Mike Fossum and Ron Garan left the station s airlock for what was planned to be a 6-1/2-hour spacewalk.


Normally, shuttle astronauts handle spacewalks while they are visiting the station, but Atlantis, which arrived at the station on Sunday for an extended nine-day stay, is short-handed.


The spacewalk, the 160th devoted to station assembly and maintenance, is the last planned outing by the US astronauts for about a year and the final one supported by space shuttle crews.
