Today, we’re celebrating Earth Day by sharing this incredible photo of the first untethered spacewalk, conducted by NASA astronaut Bruce McCandless on February 7, 1984. Captured by his fellow crew members aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger, this photo shows McCandless approaching his maximum distance from the vehicle. Following the walk, when asked to describe the panorama with the Earth below him, McCandless remarked: “It really is beautiful.”
