Space Selfies Are the Best Selfies

No space duckface, sadly.


Just because you exit the stratosphere doesn’t mean you can escape the pull of the selfie.

While out for a space walk on Saturday, ISS commander Barry “Butch” Wilmore snapped a photo of himself that might just be the most out-of-this-world selfie of all time (I’m not sorry). Also visible in the shot is NASA’s Terry Virts. The astronauts were helping to prep the ISS for the arrival of private American spacecraft by adding two International Docking Adapters that will be active in 2017.
