This Electronic Still Camera (ESC) view shows astronaut Winston E. Scott, mission specialist, during his second Extravehicular Activity (EVA) in the cargo bay of the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Columbia. Scott, assisted in the EVA by Takao Doi (out of frame), is experimenting with the Autonomous Extravehicular Activity Robotic Camera Sprint (AERCam Sprint). The AERCam Sprint is a prototype free-flying television camera that could be used for remote inspections of the exterior of the International Space Station (ISS).
