It Still Amazes Me That Some People Return From A Work Day Like This

Everyone on Earth commutes back home in bike, car, train or bus. Andrew Feustel just opens a hatch in the International Space Station, waves to the camera and goes to eat his dehydrated strawberry ice cream and sleep.

Astronaut Andrew Feustel reenters the space station after completing n 8-hour, 7-minute spacewalk at 10:12 a.m. EDT Sunday, May 22, 2011. He and fellow spacewalker Mike Fincke completed this, the second of the four STS-134 spacewalks, for a mission total of 14 hours 26 minutes. It was the 246th spacewalk conducted by U.S. astronauts, the 116th from space station airlocks, and the 157th in support of space station assembly and maintenance. It was Feustel's fifth spacewalk and Fincke's seventh spacewalk.
