Illustration for article titled Even Astronauts Take Selfies When They Go For a Spacewalk

Last week, astronauts Tim Peake and Tim Kopra scrambled around the outside of the International Space Station to replace a failed voltage regulator. The hard work didn’t prevent Peake from taking a selfie, though.

The astronaut found time during the 4 hours and 43 minutes of spacewalking to snap what must be one of the most memorable selfies ever taken. Nice shot, Tim.
