This picture — NASA’s Picture of the Day — took us a bit by surprise today. Not because spacewalking is surprising, but because these things happen and nobody pays much attention to it, anymore.
Astronaut Andrew Feustel didn’t just go for a stroll, he went for a marathon and then some, spacewalking for 8 hours and 7 minutes. It was the the 246th time a U.S. astronaut has walked in space. And that was the sixth-longest spacewalk ever.
