Tour Of The ISS

In her final days as Commander of the International Space Station, Sunita Williams of NASA recorded an extensive tour of the orbital laboratory and downlinked the video on Nov. 18, just hours before she, cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko and Flight Engineer Aki Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency departed in their Soyuz TMA-05M spacecraft for a landing on the steppe of Kazakhstan. The tour includes scenes of each of the station’s modules and research facilities with a running narrative by Williams of the work that has taken place and which is ongoing aboard the orbital outpost.” (YouTube)

This is an insightful and amusing tour of the ISS, given by Commander Sunita Williams. One of the first things that stuck me was the noise of the place. In Commander Chris Hadfield‘s videos, the background noise doesn’t really come into effect. The second thing that I noticed… it’s very cramped in there!

If ever I ended up on the ISS, I’m pretty sure I’d spend most of my time in the cupola. Every single time I see the Earth from that position, it just takes my breath away. Such a humbling and beautiful sight.

Onwards!
