THE tweet most spectacular downloaded from the Japanese astronaut’s iPhone, however, is the one that shows a time lapse from one of the windows of the ISS. The description is concise letting the video do the talking “I captured a timelapse of Earth from the window of the ISS. It’s exactly one full orbit around the Earth. Breathtaking”. Indeed you can see the Earth scrolling in the lower part of the frame with the solar panels of the ISS and the Sun rising then setting in one of the many cycles Sunrise seen on board.

ISS toilet video

The video taken from Yusaku Maezawa And Yozo Hirano showing the toilets on board the international space station. It is not in itself a novelty as other astronauts in the past have spoken or shown this fundamental part but generally “hidden”. Its operation is differentiated according to the type of physiological need and in general it seems that even for non-professional astronauts (after a course) it is not so impossible to use.

Finally, it was also announced that the Japanese astronaut duo will participate with the rest of the crew in tests of physiological character, in particular how space affects the circulatory system. These are tests that are important for everyone (like the other experiences on board). Yusaku Maezawa he also has a deal with Elon Musk and SpaceX for a Starship-bound mission to lunar orbit called dearMoon.
