Floating in space may be exhilarating for some, scary for others. A viral space photograph provokes both emotions.

Netizens are fascinated by a Bruce McCandless of astronaut Bruce McCandless II floating in orbit with the blue Earth below him. In February 1984, McCandless II walked out of the Challenger to practise a satellite-repair mission.

This was the first time an astronaut has ever been untethered from the spaceship and walked in space.

McCandless II was 170 miles (273.5 kilometres) above Earth’s surface when this picture was taken. According to the report, McCandless II was travelling at 17,500 miles per hour alongside his space shuttle as they orbited the Earth, but he was unaware of his speed because of the “virtual vacuum of space, he sensed nothing of his speed.”

A popular scientific page with the name @Sciencenature14 tweeted a picture of McCandless II’s spacewalk. The Twitter account tweeted the image and called it “Perhaps the most-terrifying space photograph to date” The tweet quickly surpassed 1.5 lakh likes in a single day.
