ISS013-E-80781 (12 Sept. 2006) --- Canadian Space Agency astronaut Steven G. MacLean, STS-115 mission specialist, and astronaut Christopher J. Ferguson, pilot, work inside the Destiny laboratory to support the first day of the resumption of construction on the International Space Station. Two crewmates--astronauts Heidemarie M. Stefanyshyn-Piper and Joseph R. Tanner--earlier donned extravehicular mobility units and were outside now participating in the first of three scheduled space walks.

S115-E-05663 (12 Sept. 2006) --- Astronauts Joseph R. Tanner (left) and Heidemarie M. Stefanyshyn-Piper, both STS-115 mission specialists, work in tandem during the mission's first session of extravehicular activity (EVA) while the Space Shuttle Atlantis was docked with the International Space Station. During today's spacewalk, Tanner and Stefanyshyn-Piper worked to connect power cables on the P3/P4 truss, release restraints for the Solar Array Blanket Boxes that hold the solar arrays and the Beta Gimbal Assemblies that serve as the structural link between the truss' integrated electronics and the Solar Array Wings. Stefanyshyn-Piper and Tanner also installed the Solar Alpha Rotary Joint and completed the connection of electrical cables between the new P3 truss and the P1 truss.

S115-E-05726 (12 Sept. 2006) --- Astronaut Joseph R. Tanner, STS-115 mission specialist, used a digital still camera to expose a photo of his helmet visor during today's session of extravehicular activity (EVA) while Space Shuttle Atlantis was docked with the International Space Station. Also visible in the reflections in the visor is the station's Canadarm2.
