Backdropped by a blue and white Earth, the Quest Airlock on the International Space Station (ISS) was photographed by a crewmember. Astronauts David A. Wolf and Piers J. Sellers, both STS-112 mission specialists, used the airlock to exit the station for the first scheduled session of extravehicular activity (EVA) which began at 10:21 a.m. on October 10, 2002.
