Check Out This First-Person View Of A Real Spacewalk

Have you ever wondered what it would actually be like dangling from outer space?  Looking down on earth from thousands upon thousands of miles away?  I think that’s something many of us have wondered in our lifetimes yet few of any will experience in real life.   While we may never actually go to space ourselves, technology has gotten so amazing that we can now take a “first look” at what it would be like up there.

The video you’re about to see is some first person point of view footage captured by European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Thomas Pesquet while he assists NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough with some repairs outside the International Space Station.   It’s the kind of footage that was never possible only a few short years ago but today gives us a glimpse of outer space in a way we’ve never had access to.

Here’s a description of the video:

The spacewalkers carried out various repair and maintenance tasks on the ISS including lubricating the Canadarm2 robot arm, inspecting a radiator valve that was possibly leaking ammonia, and replacing some of the cameras on the Japanese section of the station.
