A spacewalking astronaut accidentally let go of her tool bag after a grease gun inside it burst, and watched as the kit floated away.

Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper and Stephen Bowen were taking part in the first of four spacewalks of the Space Shuttle Endeavour's current mission to the International Space Station.
