On February 7, 1984, NASA astronaut Bruce McCandless became the first person to perform an untethered spacewalk, floating freely in space without any safety lines. The historic moment was captured in stunning photos, which are being shared on the 40th anniversary of the event. McCandless passed away in 2017 at the age of 80.
