“Can’t imagine what that must feel like - knowing that the only thing between you and - on one side, eternity; and on the other, earth - is an inch or so of fabric and glass...that must be quite the experience,” shared a Twitter user. “I am utterly in awe of people who have space walked - if ever I met you Victor you would be bombarded with questions about how it felt, what you saw, did you have time to pause and just be at one with all that space and view etc etc etc - what an amazing thing,” expressed another.“I'll never tire of seeing space walks! You've earned the thrill after many years of dedication and hard work. Thank you for sharing!” said a third.
