Luca Parmitano Spacewalk in This Week at NASA
Luca Parmitano Spacewalk.

European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano, Expedition 36 flight engineer, attired in an Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) spacesuit, participates in a session of extravehicular activity (EVA) as work continues on the International Space Station.
