  1. Viesturs is a beast! He is practically like a force a nature himself. His accomplishments are constantly amazing.

  2. Agreed! The man is amazing. I’m trying to determine if he went up without oxygen again. In most of the photos, like this one, you don’t see his mask, but one of them has a caption that says it is him and he has a mask on. Considering his past record, and lack of mask in most of the shots, I’m guessing he went up with out the O’s this time too.
