This week, two Russian astronauts set a new world record for the longest spacewalk, lasting over eight hours outside the International Space Station (ISS).

But in the process, the astronauts managed to leave a critical antenna facing the wrong way.

Astronauts Alexander Misurkin and Anton Shkaplerov ventured out of the ISS on Friday to replace an electronics box to upgrade an antenna used for communications with Russia’s Mission Control.

The pair spent 8 hours and 13 minutes replacing the box - surpassing the previous longest spacewalk by six minutes.
