VIDEO: Stunning Tour Of The International Space Station By NASA’s Sunita Williams
NASA astronaut Sunita Williams gives us a farewell tour of the International Space Station hours before her departure as commander of Expedition 33 (September 16, 2012 — November 18, 2012).
This 25 minute video gives us all a peak into what it’s like to be part of a space station expedition. It’s one of the best tours of the space station I’ve seen.
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.
