It’s a long ways
down. This is a view from the vantage point of astronaut Shane Kimbrough during
his spacewalk last Friday outside the International Space Station. Shane posted
this photo and wrote, “ View of our spectacular planet (and my boots)
during the #spacewalk yesterday
with @Thom_astro.”
During the spacewalk with Kimbrough and Thomas Pesquet of ESA, which lasted
just over six-and-a-half hours, the two astronauts successfully disconnected
cables and electrical connections to prepare for its robotic move Sunday, March
26.

Two astronauts will
venture outside the space station again this Thursday, March 30 for the second
of three spacewalks. Kimbrough and Flight Engineer Peggy Whitson will begin
spacewalk preparation live on NASA Television starting at 6:30 a.m. EST, with
activities beginning around 8 a.m. Watch live online here.
