Amazing Photos from Saturday’s Emergency Spacewalk

12 May , 2013 by

The spacewalk outside the International Space Station was captured on film by the tweeting, Facebooking, social media maven and space station commander Chris Hadfield. “Amazing day,” he said. “EVA went off without a hitch. Great crew, phenomenal ground support and a supportive audience. Who could ask for anything more?”

How ’bout a picturesque view? We’ve got that too! See a collection of great images from the EVA, which — for the moment — appears to have been a success in fixing the leaking ammonia coolant system.

    I’m proud of the world’s accomplishments on building, maintaining, and exploring with the ISS. Now all we have to do is convince the polluters of the world that Spaceship Earth needs to be treated much better. Especially when it comes to wars and destruction.
