Astronauts Luca Parmitano of ESA (European Space Agency) and NASA Flight Engineer Drew Morgan performed a spacewalk on Friday described by the agency as "the most complex of their kind since the Hubble Space Telescope servicing missions".

Footage shows Parmitano and Morgan working outside the the International Space Station (ISS) to repair the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS), a cosmic ray detector. Astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir were also seen assisting them from inside the ISS.

A team of engineers and scientists were supporting the mission from the ground.

Friday's spacewalk will be the first of at least four spacewalks and will include tasks like replacing a cooling system and fixing a coolant leak on AMS.
