Most extreme travel selfie ever?

2014-04-24 09:15
Cape Town - If you've ever done a solo trip, you will know the value in being able to take a good selfie. But, we bet, your selfies could never quite live up to this one. 

Time reports that NASA astronaut Rich Mastracchio aboard the International Space Station took a seriously impressive selfie on Wednesday during an Extra-Vehicular Activity - EVA for short.

And in layman's terms? He was just chilling, walking around in space and stuff. 

He posted the extreme selfie to his twitter feed and admitted that space suits are not really that conducive to taking pics of your self. 

Despite the discomfort Mastracchio still managed to take a pretty epic shot in a destination that definitely beats the world's selfiest cities
