    Astronauts working inside and out...

    Astronauts install porch for Kibo lab

    Astronauts working inside and out installed a porch for experiments on Japan's enormous space station lab July 18, accomplishing the major objective despite microphone static that often drowned out the spacewalkers' voices. Despite the racket, the spacewalkers managed to prep the Kibo lab and the new porch for their mechanical hookup. A record 13 astronauts from five countries boarded the International Space Station after the shuttle Endeavour docked with it July 17. (AP, Kyodo News)

    Does this sound good? Do you say "outside" instead of "out"?

    Thank you.

    Yes, it should be "outside".

    You could, but it is common in this collocation to omit the second "side".

    And if you needed another vote, "inside and out" sounds quite natural to me as well.
