A pair of Russian cosmonauts ventured outside the International Space Station on Friday to install two cameras that are part of a Canadian commercial project to stream high-definition video from space to subscribers over the Internet.

Station commander Oleg Kotov and flight engineer Sergey Ryazanskiy left the station's Pirs airlock at 8 a.m. EST (1300 GMT) as the complex sailed 260 miles (420 km) over Australia, mission commentator Rob Navias said during a NASA Television broadcast of the spacewalk.
