MOSCOW, Dec. 28 (UPI) -- Two cosmonauts completed a spacewalk Saturday to replace equipment on the outside of the International Space Station, Russian space officials said.

Oleg Kotov and Sergei Ryazansky installed new equipment including high-resolution cameras to photograph Earth and a foothold for future spacewalks, RIA Novosti reported.

They also removed old experiment equipment during the spacewalk.

This was Kotov's fifth spacewalk, and Ryazansky's second -- the first of which came last month when he and Kotov carried the Olympic torch into open space for the first time.
