sciencemuseummn Our #GiantAstronaut projects images—like your smiling face—into its mask. Share your best selfie! #poseMW #MuseumWeek 2d
  •   mosel_22 I was at that Friday 2d
  •   meghan_holmes78 @sciencemuseummn we tried to do photos via Instagram at this spot during the day but the lighting was really poor - any way to improve this? Even our regular camera didn't work 2d
  •   sciencemuseummn @meghan_holmes78 We're definitely aware of the unfortunate daylight issues. Some of the great features of our building are the atrium windows, but they don't get along well with the astronaut screen. 2d
  •   le_phamme Does the face change like it did at coachella? 25min
  •   sciencemuseummn @le_phamme It does! Visitors can take a short video of themselves which gets projected on the mask. 19min

sciencemuseummn The ultimate #space selfie! (via @nasa)

This is an image of astronaut Barry (Butch) Wilmore from yesterday's spacewalk. His spacewalking partner, Terry Virts, can be seen in the reflection of Wilmore's visor. The duo rigged a series of power and data and routed 340 of 360 feet of cable, which is part of a reconfiguration of station systems and modules to accommodate the delivery of new docking adapters that commercial crew vehicles will use later this decade to deliver astronauts to the orbital laboratory.

The duo will venture outside the space station again on Wednesday, Feb. 25, to deploy two more cables and lubricate the end of the space station's robotic arm.
