NASA Astronaut Nicole Mann Captures Stunning “Space-Selfie” During Spacewalk
NASA astronaut and Expedition 68 Flight Engineer Nicole Mann points the camera toward herself and takes a “space-selfie” with her helmet’s visor up during a six-hour and 41-minute spacewalk. She and fellow spacewalker Koichi Wakata (out of frame) of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) installed a modification kit on the International Space Station’s starboard truss structure preparing the orbital lab for its next roll-out solar array.
