European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano
ISS036-E-019886 (16 July 2013) --- European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano, Expedition 36 flight engineer, attired in an Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) spacesuit, is pictured in the International Space Station's Quest airlock as the July 16 spacewalk draws to a close. A little more than one hour into the spacewalk, Parmitano reported water floating behind his head inside his helmet. The water was not an immediate health hazard for Parmitano, but Mission Control decided to end the spacewalk early.
