Just for fun,

An astronaut in a space suit is taking an untethered spacewalk outside the shuttle,
If he was prone to such phobia's would he feel agrophobic(fear of open spaces for he has no natural boundary) or claustrophobic (fear of being confined due to the inabillity to remove the encompasing spacesuit or open the visor)

What if he was afraid of heights?
would it bother him, as from HIS perspective he is unable to fall due to being in (ahem) freefall?
