Departing Space Station Commander Provides Tour of Orbital Laboratory

#Science & Technology
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.

This is awesome and terrifying at the same time

I met her and another astronaut eating at our restaurant the other day and shook their hands. I was so starstruck.

It's amazing what we accomplish when we (countries, cultures) partner with each other instead of argue and fight and kill each other. Freakin' space!

Wow! For a claustrophobic person like me, it's just way too confined.

I was going to show my 5 year and twin 4 year old daughters 3 minutes of this. They were GLUED! At about 10 minutes I offered to turn it off and watch the rest later, and two of my girls shouted, "NO!"
It was VERY cool - both the video and their reactions.

This is one of the greatest videos I've ever seen. They are all so lucky to be able to experience that

They have exit signs on the ISS, lol.

The amazing thing to me is that they're not floating, they're falling. Imagine months at a time falling.ย

This was awesome. It would have been really cool if they filmed the trip back in the Soyuz though.

How does she control her movement through the ISS without hitting anything. She was floating around like a helium balloon. I probably would have smacked my face on the ceiling. :-P

Thanks for making this video! It shows how well different countries can work together and what we are able to achieve when we work together.
