This amazing selfie was taken by Astronaut Mike Hopkins, Expedition 38 Flight Engineer. He was out on the second of two spacewalks at the International Space Station (ISS) took on Christmas Eve. He and the ISS crew successfully fixed a faulty water pump on the exterior of the station. Also, if you think about it, having the Earth photobombing him in the back makes it even more incredible.
