If you’re feeling a need to get away–far, far away--from the news today, consider an out-of-this-world show from NASA.

A six-hour space walk at the International Space Station is being live streamed. Two Russian astronauts, Pavel Vinogradov and Roman Romanenko, will exit the station to do some work in the vacuum of space.

The two are fixing a broken reflector and will be setting a space-weather science experiment on the outside of the station.

The astronauts will also be retrieving the Biorisk experiment, which studied the effect of microbes on spacecraft structures, according to the NASA press release.

Views from space will include a camera on Romanenko's helmet.
