Watch Russia's Olympic Torch Take Its First Space Walk

The Sochi Winter Olympics gets underway in February and, as is traditional in the build up to such events, the Olympic torch is taken on a lengthy and symbolic relay, visiting dozens of locations and spreading the ethos of the games. As of Saturday 9th November, you can now add outer space to that list of locations as the Sochi Olympic torch became the first of its kind to visit the international space station. 

 

Watch as two Russian Cosmonauts take the torch, which I should add was not lit, on a spectacular photo op.
