  1. Love these clips.
    And I soooo wanna go into outer space one day.

    Curious that humans still sleep 8hrs a day while in space.

  3. I am *SO* used to sleeping on my sides, head firmly planted into a nice comfy pillow, I can not imagine trying to fall asleep in very low / no gravity...

  6. I am used to sleeping on my side...I can't imagine having to fall asleep while floating. I don't think that it would be very comfortable.

  7. Porn seems to lead a lot of technological revolution. I wonder when the porn industry will figure out a way to monetize weightlessness.

  8. I've been sleeping in a heavy duty recliner every night for several years. I have heart and respiratory issues and it is the only way I have found that I can get any rest and not wake up feeling like crap.

  9. Love these video clips that put us in touch with daily activities of astro/cosmonauts. Would love to live aboard a space station, gliding from place to place, sleeping comfortably in my pod without having to worry about falling out of bed. Thanks, Chris Hadfield for your posts. Sweet dreams!
