    Up to three golf balls will be launched by the astronauts in the early 
    stages of the upcoming EVA.  which commences at 1800 EST - if I have my time 
    conversion correct this is 2300 UTC - the spacewalk lasts around 6 hours.
    
    The golf balls have less mass than the normal golf ball.  They are only 
    expected to remain in orbit for about three days or so.
