NASA astronaut Joseph Acaba did the installation honors and NASA quickly took advantage of the high-definition video to show Acaba working on another part of the station's exterior with his feet floating free during a livestream. The spacewalk will last about 6.5 hours. "The duo completed all planned tasks".

During the spacewalk, the duo replaced a camera system on the Canadarm2 robotic arm's "hand" known as "latching end effector" that spacewalkers installed on October 5, a high definition camera on the starboard truss of the station and replaced a fuse on the Dextre robotic arm extension.

This was the third of three spacewalks scheduled in October to handle maintenance and replacement of equipment outside the ISS.
