Astronauts prepare for fourth spacewalk

Spacewalkers Patrick Forrester and Steven Swanson will be
activating a rotating joint on the space station's newest segment.
That will allow a new pair of solar wings to track the sun.
They also plan to install a camera, a debris shield and a
computer network cable during the planned six-and-a-half-hour
spacewalk.
Meanwhile, flight director Holly Ridings says four of the six
malfunctioning computer processors were operating, while the
remaining two were turned on and then flipped back off to be in
standby mode.
Atlantis was cleared yesterday to return to Cape Canaveral later
this week after engineers determined the space shuttle's heat
shield could survive the intense heat of re-entry.
