CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., April 24 (UPI) -- Move over, Ellen.

Rich Mastracchio has snapped the selfie to end all selfies.

The NASA astronaut was out on a spacewalk with crew member Steve Swanson to replace a backup computer box on the International Space Station when he decided to take a photo.

"The space suit makes it very difficult to get a good selfie. I tried several today," Mastracchio said of the photo.



The spacewalk selfie comes only a day after NASA encouraged Earth-bound Twitter followers to celebrate Earth Day with "#GlobalSelfies"
