Russian cosmonauts step out into space


Two Russian flight engineers have undertaken a six hour spacewalk from the international space station.

Their mission was to remove a space laser communications system and install other technical equipment.

The station, which orbits around 250 miles above the earth, has a crew of three Russians, two Americans and an Italian.

It was the 173rd spacewalk carried out for maintenance of the space station.
