NASA news: This astronaut's space selfies are out of this world – 'Visor up this time'

“All #spacewalk #selfies (and other photos) made possible with a Nikon D5 with a 28mm lens in a protective housing (visible in center of 2nd photo. #SelfieSunday”

The first selfie shows Dr Meir’s smiling face up-close, inside of her spacesuit’s domed helmet.

You can just see the blue, curved edge of our planet in the helmet’s reflection.

For the second photo, the astronaut posed in front of what appears to be one of the space station’s large solar arrays.

The solar arrays have a wingspan of about 240ft and provide the ISS with the power needed to operate the orbital laboratory.
