Russia Sochi Torch Relay
In this image taken from TV, the Olympic Torch is carried outside the International Space Station (ISS) on a space walk Saturday Nov. 9, 2013. Two Russian cosmonauts Oleg Kotov and Sergei Ryazansky are taking the un-lit torch for the Sochi Winter Olympics on its first historic space walk with the curve of the earth seen in background right, ahead of next year's Winter Olympic Games in Russia. The Torch relay for the Sochi Winter Games began on Oct. 7, 2013, in Moscow, and will pass through many cities that showcase the historical, cultural and ethnic richness of Russia, as well as a short space walk and this torch will be used to light the Olympic cauldron for the games.
