"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."
I have seen other ISS "tour" videos before but I must say this one is very complete. I always wondered if dust can get inside the Station. The big place looks totally dust-less.
Any drop of water must "float" in Zero G the same as any other object. Also I wonder if the ISS astronauts get more easily tired being in Zero G?
The Space Walks look awfully tiring with all these long hours of work outside the Station for both men and women alike as they are submitted to the same type of work with the same tools and are out in the void of Space working for the same time duration.
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde
