Operating outside the space craft is properly referred to extravehicular activity or EVA, more commonly referred to as a spacewalk. More 215 humans have completed spacewalks, with Astronaut Ed White being the first American to complete an EVA. To operate outside the space craft requires the donning of space suits, which have evolved since the first models of the 1960s.
