John Grunsfeld and Rick Linnehan concluded a 7 hour 1 minute spacewalk at 7:38 a.m. central time today, successfully installing the first of two new-generation solar arrays on the Hubble Space Telescope.

Preliminary aliveness tests of the new solar array were successfully conducted about 7:20 a.m today. The second solar array will be installed in a spacewalk by Jim Newman and Mike Massimino, slated to begin about 12:30 a.m. central time Tuesday.

The crew will spend the rest of the day cleaning up after today's spacewalk and will conduct a review of procedures for tomorrow's spacewalk before beginning a scheduled nine-hour sleep shift just before noon.
