In this Dec. 1993, onboard view from Space Shuttle mission STS-61 shows astronauts Story Musgrave and Jeffrey Hoffman’s Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA) to repair the Hubble Space Telescope. STS-61 was the first service mission to the Hubble Space Telescope.
On flight day four, Dec. 4 at 10:46 p.m. EST, Musgrave and Hoffman began the first spacewalk. For five days, they or another pair would exit the airlock at around the same time each evening and spend between six and eight hours in the payload bay.
