The International Space Station has been in orbit since 1998. Camera technology has come a long way since then. Astronauts out on a spacewalk on Friday just installed a new enhanced HD camera and NASA posted a first look at its eye-catching capabilities. It gives viewers a much crisper look at exterior activities like Friday's spacewalk.
NASA astronaut Joseph Acaba did the installation honors and NASA quickly took advantage of the high-definition video to show Acaba working on another part of the station's exterior with his feet floating free during a livestream.
This was the third of three spacewalks scheduled in October to handle maintenance and replacement of equipment outside the ISS.
Earlier this month, NASA astronautwhile in his spacesuit and likened the experience to triggering a shutter button while wearing oven mitts.
Today's successful spacewalk lasted for over six hours and the astronauts returned safely to the inside of the station.
