Before the leak

One of the toughest spots to work outside, between 3 modules with no space to manoeuvre
Luca Parmitano and Chris Cassidy took these photographs of each other during their spacewalk. Shortly afterwards Luca reported water floating behind his head inside his helmet and NASA Mission Control decided to end the spacewalk early.
So Chris is taking pictures of me...

Last smile outside, right before discovering the leak

ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano and NASA’s Chris Cassidy took these photos during their spacewalk on 16 July. A little more than an hour into the sortie, ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano reported water floating behind his head inside his spacesuit helmet. The water was not an immediate health hazard for Luca, but NASA Mission Control decided to end the spacewalk early. The spacewalk ended at 13:29 GMT (15:39 CEST), after 1 hour 32 minutes. Both astronauts are well and the cause of the leak is still being investigated.
