On 30 May 2007, International Space Station Expedition 15's Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineer Oleg Kotov performed a 5-hour, 25-minute spacewalk, installing Service Module Debris Protection (SMDP) panels and rerouting a Global Positioning System antenna cable.

This was the first spacewalk for both cosmonauts. Additional SMDP panels will be installed on the Zvezda Service Module during a second spacewalk on 6 June. During that spacewalk, Yurchikhin and Kotov will also install a section of an Ethernet cable on the Zarya module and a Russian experiment called Biorisk on Pirs docking compartment.
