Russian cosmonaut Vladimir Titov, a crew member of the shuttle Atlantis, yesterday became the first non-American to conduct a space walk from a U.S. ship. He joined astronaut Scott Parazynski outside the Russian space station Mir, where the two retrieved equipment from a scientific experiment and prepared for future repairs of the ruptured space station. Inside Mir, crew members replaced the ship’s faulty central computer with a new one delivered this past weekend by Atlantis. (AP, October 1)
