Humans in Space: Amazing Spacewalk Photos

1. Rusty Schweickart stands outside Apollo 9’s Lunar Module. (Apollo 9 didn’t go to the moon. It was an Earth-orbiting testing mission.)

2. Bruce McCandless II took the first untethered space walk in February 1984. Here we see him from Challenger, floating above Earth.

3.Richard Hieb, Thomas Akers, and Pierre Thuot hold on to the 4.5 ton INTELSAT VI communications satellite during a 1992 mission.

4. G. David Low practiced handling heavy stuff in space by using Peter J.K. Wisoff as a stand-in for Hubble components in 1993.

5. Carl Meade and Mark Lee (right) rehearse spacewalk contingency plans in 1994.

If you can’t see their faces from the insides of their suits, then they always look creepy to me. Like they’re disembodied or something, reminiscent of the scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey where Dave retrieves Frank’s limp body with the space pod.
