Departing Space Station Commander Provides Tour of Orbital Laboratory

Published on Nov 19, 2012 by NASA

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.

  1. Hey.. great video. i enjoyed watching. when i was young, in the 50’s and 60’s i was very interested in this kind of thing. of course back then it was all science fiction. now it is a reality, Thanks for posting.
