Ever wondered what it would be like to live on the International Space Station for six months? Think it would be easy? Well think again. Apparently not only is it a very busy place indeed, with lots of scientists doing amazing experiments and all that boffin type activity, but it also comes with its own share of weirdness. Like the fact that you don’t ever sit down. Not for 6 months or however long your tour is. No chairs you see.
This International Space Station Video Tour delivered by outgoing commander Sunita Williams is absolutely riveting in oh so many ways. So much science, money and effort, so many ridiculous features (there is no up or down), and all wrapped up in a web of glorious international teamwork. Why can’t we all cooperate like this instead of bickering all the time? If you’ve got a spare half hour, grab a cup of something and enjoy.
