NASA's GoPro Spacewalk Footage Is Simply Incredible

GoPro footage is often the best kind of footage. GoPro footage from space however blows everything else out of the water.

NASA's Terry Virts and Barry Wilmore decided to take a couple of the small action cameras with them on their latest EVA as they prepared the International Space Station to start receiving cargo vessels.

The resulting footage is quite simply some of the best we've ever seen in space - running at a silky smooth 60fps it's hard not to feel like you're out there floating in orbit around the Earth with them.

While the mission itself was standard procedure, the addition of the POV GoPro meant that what for them was probably quite mundane, was for us an incredible opportunity to see the world from space.
