Just Hit It With a Hammer

NASA Space Station Status Report 22 February 2007

"Expedition 14 Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria and Flight Engineer Mikhail Tyurin retracted a stuck antenna on a cargo spacecraft during a 6-hour, 18-minute spacewalk that ended at 10:45 a.m. CST Thursday."

Astronauts prepare for record-setting spacewalk, New Scientist

"On Thursday, Tyurin and Lopez-Alegria will first use a hammer and a chisel to try to pound the antenna into place. If that does not work, they will try to cut two of the four metal struts that hold the antenna in place."
