Apollo 17, Ron Evans spacewalk

apollo 10Totally unbelievable spacewalk.

17th December 1972, during the trip back to Earth Apollo 17 astronaut Ron Evans successfully conducted a spacewalk to retrieve exposed film from the instrument bay on the exterior of the Apollo Command Module. The film is originally shot at 6fps (Video part 1 to 3, no sound). This spacewalk took place near the moon and is totally unbelievable. In Part 4 you can see a NASA propaganda version of the video. Today it takes hours of preparations to do a spacewalk from the ISS. In 1972 you just open the hatch and off you go.
