Photo taken by Alexander Gerst during a 7-hour-45-minute EVA by Russian cosmonauts Oleg Kononenko and Sergei Prokopyev on December 11, 2018. They used this spacewalk to examine a section of the external hull of the Soyuz MS-9 spacecraft docked to the ISS, where a small leak was sealed from the inside by the Expedition 56 crew shortly after it was discovered in late August. The cosmonauts took samples of any residue found on the hull and took digital images of the area.
