Here is a breathtaking GoPro video of a spacewalk by two Russian cosmonauts, Mikhail Korniyenko and the record-breaking Gennady Padalka, outside the International Space Station (ISS). (Padalka recently set a new record of 879 cumulative days spent in space.)
It is certainly an exciting job – and what a view!
But I’m amazed at all the fiddly stuff on the outside of the ISS. I wouldn’t have the confidence – too scared of being caught up in all the wires and gadgets.
Although, there would not be a problem with dropping tools and gadgets.
See how Gennady Padalka, or is it Mikhail Korniyenko, disposes of the replaced item at the end!
