Astronauts Ricky Arnold (@astro_ricky) and Drew Feustel completed the fifth spacewalk this year at 2:10 p.m. EDT today, lasting 6 hours, 31 minutes. #astronaut #spacewalk #international #space #station

The Earth passes 250 miles below spacewalker Ricky Arnold (@Astro_Ricky) today while he is attached to the tip of the Canadarm2 robotic arm in the middle of swapping television camera gear.

Spacewalkers Ricky Arnold (left) and Drew Feustel (right) switched their spacesuits to battery power at 8:39 a.m. EDT to officially start today's spacewalk to swap thermal control gear. The duo is pictured here inside their U.S. spacesuits on May 7 for a fit check verification ahead of a pair of spacewalks. Norishige Kanai (center), from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, assisted the duo in and out of the spacesuits during the sizing process.
