In one of the most harrowing spacewalks in decades, Parmitano had to rush back into the International Space Station on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 after a mysterious water leak inside his helmet robbed him of the ability to speak or hear and could have caused him to choke or even drown. His spacewalking partner, Cassidy, had to help him inside after NASA quickly aborted the spacewalk. (AP Photo/Mikhail Metzel, Dmitry Lovetsky)
