Can you spot the astronaut space-walking in this picture?
Get your glasses out.

IT’S LIKE A game of Where’s Wally – but on rather a grander scale.

Terry W. Virts tweeted a picture from the Interational Space Station this week, where he’s been stationed since last November.

Here’s a closer look.


In the above picture (eerily reminiscent of some of the scenes in last year’s Oscar-winner Gravity), he challenges his Twitter followers to find the space walker.

To give you some idea of the scale of the International Space Station, it measures at about 72.8m (239ft) in length, with a width of 108.5m (356ft) and a height of around 20m (66 ft). When it’s fully crewed – as it is right now – it holds six people.

So, can you spot our space walker?

Phew. Puts it all into perspective a bit, eh?
