Atlantis Astronaut Stanley Love on his first space walk..."It's Awesome!"
Mission managers made a last-minute astronaut switch that put Love in a slot originally reserved for German astronaut Hans Schlegel; due to an undisclosed medical issue...
And with the exception of stubborn power cables, which waylaid the spacewalkers for an hour... The spacewalk appeared to go smoothly.

Schlegel assisted Atlantis pilot Alan Poindexter to choreograph Monday's spacewalk from inside the shuttle and is expected to take part in the mission's second spacewalk on Wednesday.
