The crew of the International Space Station have finished prepping for this morning’s scheduled spacewalk, and they’re expecting to open the hatch on the airlock at 7:40AM EDT. You can watch the NASA TV coverage right here, and be amazed that there are people floating in space while you have your morning coffee.

ISS Expedition 36 Flight Engineers Fyodor Yurchikhin and Alexander Misurkin will spacewalk outside the station for a scheduled six hours to replace a laser communications experiment with a new optical camera system, move a foot restraint, and also inspect a number of sites for what caused an antenna cover to come loose.

The two men will be equipped with helmet cams that will allow us to see the whole thing. NASA’s coverage begins at 7:00AM with the spacewalk expected to begin at 7:40AM, and you can see it right here:
