Sochi Torch in Space
This screen image taken from NASA shows the Sochi Olympic torch being held during a spacewalk on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013. Video streamed by the US space agency NASA showed Oleg Kotov and Sergei Ryazanskiy carrying the unlit Olympic torch, bobbing weightlessly at the end of a tether in a darkness dotted by stars. The two gingerly maneuvered to take photos of the torch against the background of the planet, the orb’s edge glowing with sunrise. (AP Photo/NASA)
