NASA astronaut Garrett Reisman, STS-132 mission specialist, takes a busy "self portrait" into his helmet visor while participating in the first of three spacewalks scheduled for the Atlantis crew and their Expedition 23 hosts. Though three sessions of extravehicular activity (EVA) will involve only three astronauts (two on each occasion) who actually leave the shirt-sleeve environments of the two docked spacecraft, all twelve astronauts and cosmonauts have roles in supporting the EVA work. Part of the space station and the blue and white Earth are among the objects seen in his visor. Astronaut Steve Bowen, mission specialist, is out of frame.
