NASA astronauts use special ‘mirror’ to take unique space selfies

Media BGR reported that the selection for the International Space Station mission is a great honor. Only a handful of humans have ever been to space, and fewer than 250 have ever been to the International Space Station. Today, a very small number of astronauts living on the International Space Station often take celebratory selfies, and NASA’s Jessica Meir is no exception.

Any selfie taken in space is quite special, but the reason meir’s latest selfie is so impressive is that it was taken using a very special “mirror” during a spacewalk.

Meir posted a photo of herself on Twitter and brought her fans a unique space walk selfie. There, she was dressed in a space suit with the earth’s glowing curves in the background. And she cleverly used a giant solar panel on the International Space Station to capture her reflection.

As Meir tweeted, the camera used to capture the image is the Nikon D5, but it’s not an ordinary photographic tool. The camera protects against the space environment with a special “protective enclosure”.

So far, Meir has completed several incredible missions on the International Space Station, such as her first all-female spacewalk with NASA astronaut Christina Koch last October.
