The fifth and final spacewalk outside the International Space Station (ISS) on the STS-127 mission has concluded with the completion of work on the Japanese Kibo laboratory.

During the spacewalk, video cameras where installed on the front and back of the new exposed Japanese facility to provide images that will aid in the berthing of the H-II Transfer Vehicle that will make its first deliveries to the ISS in September 2009.

Multiple layers of insulation where also secured around the special purpose dexterous manipulator and power channels because two space station control moment gyroscopes were separated during the mission.

Further, handrails and a portable foot restraint have also been fitted to aid future spacewalkers.

The Endeavour space shuttle will un-dock from the station on 28 July and make way for the docking of the Progress 34 cargo craft the day after.
