Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Space walking Astronauts space walk, or move around outside the Shuttle, to perform jobs such as repairing satellites. They wear space suits, which allow them to breathe and control their body temperature outside the spacecraft. Astronauts use handholds and footholds to crawl around the outside of the Shuttle. Space suits weigh 300 pounds (136 kg) on Earth, but they weigh almost nothing in space!
