Maybe you’ll shuffle some papers around and open an Excel spreadsheet so it looks like you’re busy, but let’s be honest, you’re going to spend the day listening to podcasts and fighting off the urge to nap. Astronauts on the International Space Station don’t have it so easy.

Today, NASA’s Andrew Morgan and Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency are walking around in space. The space station’s Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) is busted, and the only way to fix it is to zip up their suits and start swing some tools around.
