Space Station

The crew of the international space station has to do some improvising for today's planned spacewalk.

Russian commander Pavel Vinogradov and American Jeff Williams will be doing a series of housekeeping tasks during the six-hour excursion.

Problem is, some of the equipment they'd planned to use is missing.

One thing they can't find is part of a Russian foot restraint used to hold Vinogradov in place at the end of a 55-foot boom.

He'll use a U.S. made tether instead.

Officials say it's a lot like misplacing your car keys or reading glasses in your house.

Vinogradov was supposed to hit a gold-plated golf ball during the spacewalk as part of a publicity stunt for a Canadian golf club maker.

That's been put off until later in the year.
