Photo: Entering Space

"Exiting the airlock on EVA 2 in the daylight. The colors of the Earth just explode at you as you exit toward the planet. Notice what looks like scorch marks on the hatch thermal cover, the effect of vacuum and atomic oxygen on the threads and thread sealant used on the thermal cover. The 'smell' of space follows suit, I've heard it described like burnt cake or cookies, or like the smell of an extinguished match." Posted on August 14, 2010
