C APE CANAVERAL, Florida (AP) -- The astronauts aboard the shuttle-station complex celebrated the 40th anniversary of man's first moon landing with their own spacewalk Monday, heading outside to stockpile some big spare parts. In the second outing of their mission, David Wolf and Thomas Marshburn anchored a 6-foot (1.8-meter) dish antenna on the international space station for future use, then did the same with a hefty pump and an engine for a rail car. Three more spacewalks are planned during Endeavour's station visit, which ends July 28.
