If You Lived Here, You’d Be Weightless Now
Today’s the day when a lot of us are complaining about how far they have to travel to get home. However, this personalized tour of the International Space Stations will put your Turkey Time Traveling in perspective. It might be one of the coolest things you’ve ever seen complete with a tour of the kitchen, the sleeping quarters, where the crew exercises — there’s even a visit to their “orbital outhouse.” You’ll also see a life-size picture of the world through the space station’s 360 degree cupola. Space Station Commander Sunita Wiliams, who seems to have a permanent bad hair day in zero G, gives a tour that will both amaze and inspire space fans of all ages.
It’s a 25 minute video. But you can load it up on your mobile device from YouTube and look at it later while you are sitting in traffic on the Thruway, the Parkway and the Turnpike.
