Skylab 1 (SL-2) astronaut Paul Weitz is inside the Negative Body Pressure Device (NBPD). Joseph Kerwin attends to him. Weitz reaches out with his right arm and lets go of something which floats off into the back of the experiments area of the Orbital Workshop crew quarters. He pulls himself out of the NBPD and tries to put on a pair of shoes, as he floats back towards the camera. You can see the biosensors fixed to his spine. He pushes himself back into the centre of the room and anchors himself to put his other shoe on. Joseph reaches over to stop the camera and in the next frame we see Paul reaching out to start it again. An arm blood pressure band is wrapped around his upper left arm. He floats back towards the cycle exercise machine and straps his feet on ready to exercise.
