There were four EVA excursions on Skylab 4:
  • Gibson and Pogue on EVA-1
  • Carr and Pogue on EVA-2
  • Carr and Gibson on EVA-3
  • Carr and Gibson on EVA-4
The only photo I have seen of an EVA astronaut on Skylab 4 is S74-17456. Are there other EVA photos of Carr, Gibson and Pogue?

Which Skylab astronaut is depicted in this book cover photo? Is this an actual EVA photo, or just a composite image?

That is an actual image from Skylab 3. (SL3-120-2283). I would have to do a little additional pulling of files to see exactly who it is. If Ed is reading this, he may know which astronaut is shown.

On the subject of Skylab photos the crews took very few onboard images considering the length of the three missions. Why was this - A too hectic science schedule or the likelihood of film being damaged due to a prolonged stay onboard (heat/radiation)?

I have probably seen more images of the crews in the ground-based trainer than on-orbit.

I am somewhat surprised that so few photos of the EVA astronauts were taken during the ten Skylab EVAs.

Keith, there are a lot more than you might think. I would estimate that only about third of the images showing the flight crews aboard Skylab have been released. I have been trying for some time now to secure hi-res versions. Only have lower res right now.

This image is one of the less publicised EVA photos from Skylab. Skylab 3, Astronaut Owen K. Garriott looks at the camera as he participates in the August 6, 1973 EVA during which he and Astronaut Jack R. Lousma, pilot, deployed the twin pole solar shield to help shade the Orbital Workshop.

Ed is reading this, but I'd have to check too. I know the photo, but I am not sure who it is.

This photo of the Skylab crews in NASA SP-402 looks reversed.

It is reversed (mirror image). The photo also appears in the October 1974 National Geographic magazine as a foldout.

Photo SL3-120-2283 is Jack Lousma.

Frames 2278 to 2284 are "EVA, Lousma" in the Skylab 3 photo index.

You would think that the Skylab photo indexes would be easily found on the NASA website somewhere, but that certainly was not the case.

I stumbled across a pdf version of the Skylab 3 Photographic Index and Scene Identification document on a UFO-related website, of all places!

No such luck with the Skylab 2 and 4 indexes.

  • SL3-117-2098 to 2102 (Lousma)
  • SL3-117-2103 to 2109 (Garriott)

  • SL3-118-2171 to 2176 (Bean)
  • SL3-118-2179 to 2182 (Bean)

  • SL3-120-2278 to 2284 (Lousma)

Some of these are familiar, all the other Skylab EVA photos I have in low-res only.

Interesting to see some of these images for the first time, like the visor-up photo of Jack Lousma.

I have never seen a website that shows all the Skylab crew EVA photos, so it would be great to see them here. No doubt that some of the EVA photos are images that most of us have never seen before.

Here is SL2-100-798 in high-resolution. It is Joe Kerwin.

From the Skylab News Reference regarding EVA activities:

All three Skylab crewmembers will be suited up for the EVA ... EV3, who will remain in the MDA, will be "soft-suited", wearing a pressure suit without helmet and gloves.

Many thanks to heng44 for posting all these interesting photos. I see that 2283 is in there too. This is a great way to celebrate Skylab +40!

It looks to me like all the photos were taken by EV3 from inside Skylab.

You're welcome. And call me Ed...

I thought the same. It seems that the IVA crewman photographed the same scenes with a 70mm camera and with a 35mm camera.

By the way, the missing numbers were too dark to be interesting.

The Skylab 4 image of Ed Gibson was taken by Gerald Carr on the final Skylab EVA. The caption I am looking at says that it is a frame taken from a roll of 16mm movie film.

That is correct, so is the one of the docked CSM.

A similar quandry exists for the TV and 16mm footage. There is no comprehensive telecast schedule which makes sourcing material very difficult. According to Stan Lebar, alot of material was shot. What exactly was stored in various archives is hard to verify. LIVE TV FROM ORBIT contains the best schedules available.

In the Mission Report for Skylab 4, there is a 35mm film usage table on page 10-4. The table shows that there are 64 frames of extravehicular activity on magazine 56.
