Space photos have existed ever since man walked the moon, but Rick Mastracchio takes the cake this time with his cosmic space selfies. Space selfies might bet the only selfies worth taking now!

The NASA astronaut is taking self portraits to the next level by holding a camera in front of him and the entire planet to share with twitter. It's really a fantastic photo that was just taken yesterday stating, "The space suit makes it very difficult to get a good selfie. I tried several today."

What are casual twitter uploads for him are mind blowing for us, featuring the astronaut along side the space shuttle even snapping a couple on the space shuttle's behalf. The 54-year old American took the picture during a spacewalk on the International Space Station. The childhood dream of becoming an astronaut is back with a vengeance.
