Two U.S. astronauts on Saturday stepped outside the International Space
Station for the first of three spacewalks to fix a broken equipment cooling

"The spacewalk has officially begun," said a NASA commentator as the space
agency broadcast live images of Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata leading
the operation from inside the space station.
