Luca on camera

ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano uses a digital still camera during a spacewalk as work continues on the International Space Station. A little more than one hour into the sortie on 16 July, Luca reported water floating inside his helmet. The water was not an immediate health hazard for Luca, but NASA Mission Control decided to end the spacewalk early. Both astronauts are well, and the cause of the leak is still being investigated.

More images taken by Luca Parmitano are available on Flickr.
