Olympic Torch Highlights Station Spacewalk

Two Russian cosmonauts clad in Orlan spacesuits conducted an out-of-this-world handoff of the Olympic torch at the start of Saturday’s planned 6-hour spacewalk to perform maintenance on the International Space Station.

Expedition 37 Flight Engineers Oleg Kotov and Sergey Ryazanskiy opened the hatch to the Pirs docking compartment at 9:34 a.m. EST and floated outside to begin a photo opportunity with the unlit torch.

An Olympic moment in space

Russian Cosmonauts Oleg Kotov and Sergey Ryazanskiy conducted a spacewalk outside the International Space Station Nov. 9, installing and replacing experiments and hardware and displaying the Olympic torch that will light the Olympic flame in Sochi, Russia, on Feb. 7, 2014, during the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics. The torch was delivered to the station Nov. 7 by three new residents of the station and will return to Earth Nov. 11 with three departing crew members to resume its role in the Olympic torch relay that began in Olympia, Greece, last month.
