Apollo 17 deep spacewalk Ron Evens
Totally unbelievable spacewalk.
17 December 1972, during the trip back to Earth, Apollo 17 astronaut, Ron Evans, successfully conducted a spacewalk to retrieve exposed film from the instrument bay on the exterior of the Apollo Command Module. The film is originally shot at 6fps (Video part 1 to 3 no sound). This spacewalk was near the moon and totally unbelievable in Part 4 you see a NASA propaganda version. Today it takes hours of preparations to do a spacewalk from the ISS. In 1972 you just opened the hatch and off you go.
