Incredible GoPro footage shows what it’s like to spacewalk

Leaving the cozy confines of Earth’s atmosphere for life aboard the ISS is an exceedingly rare experience reserved for just a handful of astronauts. But thanks to NASA and GoPro, now you can share in the breathtaking views/sheer terror that astronaut Terry Virts enjoyed during a recent hour-long spacewalk.

In the video below, Virts attaches the action camera to his space suit prior to beginning an EVA (or “Extravehicular Activity” as spacewalks are officially called). Viewers are treated to an unprecedented view of the ISS’s underbelly as Virts adapts its docking station for use with a new generation of commercial spacecraft rather than the retired space shuttle.
