One NASA astronaut is doing what few women have done before, perform a space walk.
Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper rotated four solar array blanket boxes into position Tuesday at the International Space Station, and what a view from her office!
The Brazilian rain forest and the Amazon River were 220 miles below.
Piper and astronaut Joe Tanner's work will help to spin the new solar arrays like a huge waterwheel to keep the panels pointed at the sun as the station circles the globe.
