With live spacesuit cameras beaming back to earth the point-of-view of the astronauts, spacewalkers Michael Good and Stephen Bowen spent seven hours floating around the International Space Station Wednesday.  After they freed a snagged cable on the inspection boom for the shuttle Atlantis, they connected four new batteries and repaired a loose antenna on the ISS.  Their third and final spacewalk is scheduled for Friday.
