  1. Say Cheese

In spacewalk selfies, we rarely see the astronaut’s face because they have the gold visor lowered which protects their eyes from the sun’s harsh rays. Here we see astronaut Scott Parazynski STS-120 Mission Specialist during the continued construction of the international space station in October 2007.
