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.

      Dawid PietrzakDawid Pietrzak5 jaar geleden
    • +Pota Ville I want to test some of these flat earth thoughts. What would visibility be like on a flat Earth? I have seen flat Earth videos saying that Bedford Level Experiment in which a marker is still visible at 6 miles away is proof the world is flat. Or that since New York City is visible from New Jersey, the world cannot be curved. Taking this to the next step, what prevents a person from seeing an object hundreds of miles away? Or thousands of miles away? There should be nothing preventing anyone from seeing both The Atlantic and Pacific oceans from any point you want. Going even further if the world is illuminated by a sun and moon spot lights. What prevents these spotlights from being seen all the time? Couldn't someone on this flat Earth climb to a height and still see the sun during midnight? Next are seasons. In a flat Earth model the sun basically makes a path over the surface, basically making a hotter, more light-fill "trench" which would correspond to the equator. But when it is winter in Europe or North America does the path of sun change? Would this path expand or contract to further heat parts of the Earth? In this situation does the rate at which the sun travels change? Would the sun decelerate when it is summer for North America but accelerate when over South America due to the new larger path it has to travel? Does it travel at the same rate and summer days are longer in the global south? Or does the sun's path oscillate instead of expanding?

    • @Pota Ville Except for everything they do in space...And all the geostationary satellites that my Dish is pointing at. And all the satellites I can watch all night. Tell me something, why can NASA predict EVERYTHING from when a planet will be close to another, when a solar eclipse will happen, when a lunar eclipse will happen, when a meteor shower will happen, when a blood moon, super moon, when a planet will travel in front of the sun....The list goes on, but how is it that a flathead can't do this? Is it because their theories don't hold up?

  • Really amazing video, from start to finish. I'm really glad she decided to end her tour with the Soyuz. I've always been curious about them, since they're pretty much the most reliable and successful human spacecraft ever built. I've read they're really cramped--evidently a severe understatement!--so, I'm wondering why do the hatches open *inwards*? I'm surprised the guy who has to sit in that middle seat can even fit inside!

    • @bennemann hmm i see now, btw thanks man. because there are a lot of electric devices in my room, so its ok then.

      Raka GunawanRaka Gunawan5 jaar geleden
    • +Raka Gunawan What? Electronics don't create radiation, they only create electromagnetic waves in a safe energy range, unless something inside the ISS produces microwaves or high-energy radio waves. Radioactive elements create radiation (gamma rays, beta particles or alpha particles). Obs: Even monitors don't create radiation. That "don't sit too close to the TV because it emits radiation" thing is an urban myth, all that would do is make your eyes drier and tired due to the excessive luminosity and you not blinking as often as usual.

      bennemannbennemann5 jaar geleden
    • @bennemann yea. but then the electronics inside are making too much radiation too

  • So, I'm not one that knows much about space, although I'm really interested in it. In the ISS, is there absolutely no gravity whatsoever, or is there a small amount? I saw someone mention it as a "microgravity environment."

    LyricalMajestyLyricalMajesty5 jaar geleden
    • @LyricalMajesty Actually, there is gravity. In orbit you are in constant free fall, that's why you are weightless. It's like being on a weightless simulation flight that never hits the ground. That's basically what being in orbit is, constantly falling towards the Earth but moving at the same time so you never hit it. You just go round and round. If the ISS were somehow suspended at that height without moving then they would weigh about 90% of their weight on Earth.

    • @Keenan Roop if you ask me, her hair isnt floating at all, its hair sprayed into place, it doesnt float around freely and if you look at the curls all the way through the video, no matter what angle shes in or video cut theyre recording , theyre always in the same fixed place. If hair is left to flow freely, it flows from where its connected to the scalp, and as you move your head, it wouldnt bounce right back into place.
