Watch the 180th International Space Station spacewalk live here
For those that have ever wondered what it’d be like to take part in a spacewalk outside the International Space Station, today is your lucky day. Right now you can join cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev during their spacewalk, thanks to a live feed on NASA Television.
The cosmonauts left the space station early Thursday morning to start a six-and-a-half-hour job of switching out science experiment gear and installing an antenna, relocating a cargo boom, and swabbing samples from a window on the Zvezda service module.
NASA’s been updating people about the walk via Twitter since it started.
