For those watching, NASA shared that you can spot Hopkins in the spacesuit with the red stripes and Glover is in the spacesuit with no stripes.

According to the live feed, the spacecraft is moving at over 17,500 miles per hour while the astronauts do their work on the outside of the station. 

NASA scientists back on Earth can be heard on the feed giving Hopkins and Glover instructions for their tasks. 

The two astronauts also completed a spacewalk on January 27, which focused on completing cable and antenna rigging.

These are the first and second spacewalk missions of 2021, but the 233rd and 234th spacewalks in support of space station assembly, maintenance and upgrades in history.

Also in January, NASA sent 12 bottles of wine back to Earth after spending a year at the International Space Station orbiting the planet in the name of science.
