Watch live spacewalk via astronauts' helmet cameras

They've strapped on their gear, exited the International Space Station, and now astronauts Sunita Williams and Aki Hoshide are doing a spacewalk - with cameras on their helmets, allowing the world to watch their every move.

The two astronauts are working to fix an ammonia leak.

The walk began at 8:29 a.m. ET and is expected to last more than six hours, NASA says.

You can watch live here.

And you can find out why spacewalking is like "giving birth to yourself" here.

    I think they've done this before. Who was it that lost a very heavy and very expensive tool belt up there, on camera? Now it's among the orbiting space junk. Rather embarrassing.
