What does ‘hardware maintenance’ mean to you? Restarting the computer? Blowing dust off an appliance? It may sound tedious but hardware maintenance has never looked so glorious.

Go Pro footage has emerged showing two Russian astronauts busily working outside the International Space Station.

The pair spent more than five hours in zero-gravity as they performed their space chores.

Watch the stunning footage below.

The video above shows an incredible view of Earth from the International Space Station, 400 kilometres away.

The two astronauts included record-breaking Gennady Padalka who recently set a new record of 879 cumulative days spent in space.
