Take a tour of the International Space Station

Video shows you the ins/outs of the station while you can watch in full gravity

A very cool video making its way around the Internet is this video tour of the International Space Station.

The tour was given by Sunita Williams of NASA, filmed in her final days as Commander of the ISS. The video was filmed on Nov. 18, just hours before Williams, cosmonaut Yuri Malenchnko and Flight Engineer Aki Hoshide (from Japan) headed back to Earth. The video shows each of the station's modules, research facilities and commentary by Williams, NASA says.

[Want to be a Mars One colonist? Here's what you need to qualify and NASA wants to capture an asteroid in a bag and put it in orbit around the moon. Really, a bag.]

It's well worth the 25 minutes to see everything going on up in space. Thanks, NASA!
