International Space Station (AP) Spacewalking astronauts are giving the space station's new robot some eyes and a set of tools.
It's the third spacewalk of Shuttle Endeavour's visit to the station, each one aimed at putting together Dextre, the giant robot.
The last time astronauts floated out, Dextre got arms. This time, the robot is getting a tool belt and two cameras that will serve as waist-level eyes.
The robotic work by Richard Linnehan and Robert Behnken should complete Dextre's assembly outside the international space station. So far, the 12-foot robot and both of its 11-foot arms have checked out fine.
Dextre is designed to assist spacewalking astronauts and, eventually, to take over some of their chores.
Five spacewalks are planned for Endeavour's 16-day flight, which is nearing the halfway mark.
