  1. WOW! Cath, I thank you for posting this. I’ve always wanted to see what it was like in the space station. Considering that I find the moon landing to be a fake, I was skeptical as to whether the Space Station was really real or not, too. After watching this, I’m pretty sure it’s real. lol

    Anyways, it was cool at first with the spacious American module, but once they moved to the Russian module, I started to get claustrophobic and I now know that there would be no way with my ill temper and impatient attitude that I would NEVER ever be able to stay in that thing for more than a few days without going insane. Also being clumsy, I’d probably bump my head in anger every time I hit something. In addition to that, the noise pollution from the Russian module would probably drive me insane after awhile, as well.

    And to have to stay in that launching module for two days to get there and then a half a day to land back on Earth, I think I would be kicking and screaming to get out.

    Hell, as I’m typing this, I still feel like I’m floating and not sure if I’m right side up or upside down or whatever. lol

    Finally, to be able to know how to recycle all the air and hydrogen and oxygen and all of that, I’m lost. These guys are the most patient brainiacs I have ever seen. Staying up there for at least 6 months to a year, I literally don’t know how they do it. If it was the Star Trek Enterprise, I’d be OK, but this thing would have me going into a psychotic episode by the end of the week. I think they would have to put me down like a rabid dog. lol

    The last part of it showing the Earth was the best. Even though I saw it on camera, I can only imagine how it looks in person.

    Great post, Cath. Thanks again.

    1. You’re welcome NC. I was fascinated as well with all the detail of living in space you brought up. The video answered alot of questions I had about personal cleanliness, food, water and sleeping. Most of all the claustrophobic feelings I got from just watching the video felt so real.

      I couldn’t help but notice now the Russian module, although I’m sure put together with security and safety in mind, it just looked a lot smaller and in disarray. Good thing the Russians also have access to the US side of the ISS in order to get away from the lack of room to move about from time to time.

      The Russian module definitely sounded alot more noisy and those air intake (horns) scared the you-know-what out of me. I thought I was going to be sucked into outer space. LOL.

  2. Yah Thanks Cathleen for posting the tour. In my youth I worked at McDonnell Douglas and got to work on the mock up of Sky Lab. Space has come a long way since then.
