Astronaut on space-walk loses $100,000 tool bag

Astronaut on space-walk loses $100,000 tool bag: "'Umm, we have a lost tool,' came the heralding cry of Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper who, while cleaning and lubing a joint on a wing of one of the station's solar panels, let a tool bag drift away just beyond her reach. The mission was able to be salvaged, however, as fellow spacewalk astronaut Stephen Bowen shared his tools with Stefanyshyn-Piper to complete their work in 7 hours."
