Mark Vande Hei's “Space-Selfie”

On Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018, Mark Vande Hei snapped his own portrait, better known as a “space-selfie,” during the first spacewalk of the year. NASA astronauts Vande Hei and crewmate Scott Tingle ventured outside the International Space Station to perform maintenance on the station's Canadarm2 robotic arm during a seven-hour and 24-minute spacewalk.

On Monday, Vande Hei will lead another spacewalk, this time with crewmate Norishige Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), to complete maintenance on the robotic hand of the Canadarm2's robotic arm. Monday’s spacewalk begins at 7:10 a.m. EST with live NASA TV coverage beginning at 5:30 a.m.
