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.

Haha, I just love Sunita’s Medusa-like hair in zero gravity. So awesome. She might be the most charming astronaut also.

By the way, to be frank, it never occurred to me how one pees or drops a deuce in space. I got my answer watching this video!

Watch the spectacular 25 minute tour now. It’s so inspiring…
