Walk like a cosmonaut.

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.

This event marks the 180th spacewalk from the International Space Station. Watch the live stream below.
