STATEN ISLAND, NY – Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go for a walk in space and see the Earth from afar?
NASA astronauts Randy Bresnik and Joe Acaba completed a six-hour trip, 49 last Tuesday, Bresnik posted on Twitter images of the spacewalk outside the International Space Station with a GoPro camera .
"Sometimes in a #spacewalk, you just have to take a moment to enjoy the beauty of our planet Earth," Bresnik wrote. "This Go-Pro footage is from our spacewalk where Joe Acaba and I renew the Canadarm2 robotic arm and the Dextre robotic arm extension."
This was the fifth spacewalk of Bresnik's career, with more than 32 hours of total space walk; and the third for Acaba, with 19 hours and 46 minutes of total spacewalk.
The crew members of the space station have conducted 205 spacewalks in support of the badembly and maintenance of the orbital laboratory. In total, Spacewalker has spent a total of 53 days, six hours and 25 minutes working outside the station.
Last month, Bresnik filmed a video of himself and his fellow astronauts using a spinner fidget to test the physics of the toy and experiment with Newton's laws of motion.
