Astronauts complete their third spacewalk

NASA have released this exciting image of Expedition 42 Flight Engineer Terry Virts on the third spacewalk in eight days outside the International Space Station. It was originally tweeted by Virts (@AstroTerry).

Virts and Commander Barry “Butch” Wilmore on Sunday completed installing 120 metres of cable and several antennas associated with the Common Communications for Visiting Vehicles system known as C2V2.

Boeing’s Crew Transportation System (CST)-100 and the SpaceX Crew Dragon will use the system in the coming years to rendezvous with the orbital laboratory and deliver crews to the space station.
