    Abso-fa-lutely interesting! Worth the extra syllable. I didn't expect to watch it through in one go, but...
    It's so extensive, like a warren, and you wouldn't want to have a fear of cloisters!!!
    Though there was a good bit of background noise - like a rushing sound - no voice was never once raised.
    So it illustrates one thing, I suppose: "In Space, nobody can hear you scream!"

    Ta Lance for posting it up.

    PS. Did you get a load of the lensery (and other photgraphics) at about 19 mins in!!!

    WOW! Absolutely brilliant. Thanks for posting this. There is no way I could handle the small spaces. Makes me feel a little claustrophobic just watching it.

    All CC very welcome. I'm keen to learn.

    LOL. I'm a bit the same. However, just outside the spacestation is the biggest open space there is!!

    I switched my camera off auto in November 2012, and I have been busy reading and learning and practicing ever since.
    My kit is basic: Canon 1000D (two kit lenses) + 50mm f/1.8 + a tripod/monopod + Lightroom4

    When I was about 25 years old I might have gone into space, but now, 25 years later, it is now "Terra Firma" for me, and the more the "firmer" the less the "terror"!

    Well worth taking the time to sit and watch. Amazing when you hear about the space station. But totally incredible to actually see it. Thanks Lance.

    One thing is certain...they need more space (pardon the pun) for storage!
    Not for me though, like you Lance...the 'more firmer the less terror'......not to mention that I am not really that keen on enclosed places that you can't get out of easily.
    Thanks for posting the link though, fabulous video.
