NASA astronauts Wiseman and Gerst are currently performing their first space walks. Hurtling through the void of space
at 17,150 mph – 205 miles above Earth. I snapped this screenshot just moments ago from their live broadcast in HD!
It’s hard to believe that there are actually people performing this extreme-tinkering on the largest man-made structure built outside of the Earth at this very moment. They are currently riding a robotic arm replacing external lights on the space station. These live broadcasts go great with some Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky (2001 A Space Odyssey replaying in my head) I highly recommend this if you have some extra time. It’s just something I had to share.
Everyone can watch them live here and listen to the dialog between ground control and Major Tom with multi-camera angle HD video streams:
They also have a schedule of their upcoming/previous broadcasts if you want to see what else they’re doing. Go USA.
