A Russian cosmonaut works on the International Space Station.

 

In this picture, taken on 3 August 2011, Russian cosmonaut Sergei Volkov works on the Russian segment of the International Space Station. During the six-hour, 23-minute spacewalk, Volkov and colleague Alexander Samokutyaev (not seen here) moved a cargo boom from one airlock to another, installed a prototype laser communications system and deployed an amateur radio micro-satellite.
