Freebee Friday: Space Station Tour

Space stationSunita Williams, former Commander of the International Space Station, is back on terra firma, but before she rode on a returning Russian rocket she recorded this video tour of the space station. You can see where the astronauts live, eat, sleep, work and even go to the orbital bathroom, although this is likely to elicit its share of chuckles and giggles in the back of the class. At times it has the feel of a real estate video of an anxious homeowner, but the 25-minute clip has a spectacular view of the earth and is the closest that most of us will ever come to floating weightless in space.
