(Newser) – There it is—history being made. The Sochi Olympic torch was out into the great unknown today, taken outside of the International Space Station for some amazing photo ops. Russian cosmonauts Oleg Kotov and Sergey Ryazanskiy were the two that handled the torch during their two-hour spacewalk. The torch blasted off into space Thursday morning and is expected to make its way back to earth Monday.
