During the seven-hour, 11-minute spacewalk, Garan and fellow STS-124 astronaut Mike Fossum installed television cameras on the front and rear of the Kibo Japanese Pressurized Module to assist Kibo robotic arm operations, removed thermal covers from the Kibo robotic arm, prepared an upper JPM docking port for flight day seven's attachment of the Kibo logistics module, readied a spare nitrogen tank assembly for its installation during the third spacewalk, retrieved a failed television camera from the Port 1 truss and inspected the port Solar Alpha Rotary Joint.
