Valentine's day space walk on STS-130 Endeavour mission

NASA decided to extend the STS-130 mission of the space shuttle Endeavour by one day, therefore the member crew will return back to Earth on 21 February 2009. On Valentine's day the astronauts performed an almost 6 hours spacewalk by doing work on the International Space Station. Nicholas Patrick and Robert Behnken completed the 2nd and the 3rd scheduled spacewalks of the STS-130 mission. They spent 5 hours and 54 minutes in space finishing their work at 3.14 a.m EST. For Robert Behnken it was his 5th space spacewalk while for Nicholas Patrick the 2nd.
