GeekSpeak - Living in a Space Station! Join the discussion on December 11th at 12pm slt


What is it really like to live in the International Space Station?  Do you envy the people who go there? 

You have to stay for about 6 months, living with people you don’t really know and maybe don’t like.  And there is no escape! 

Sometimes you have to shelter from space debris or solar storms and you are separated from sudden death by a very thin wall.  Living without gravity can be dangerous and hygiene is difficult.  And not a chance in hell of getting a Big Mac.

Would you go if you could?  Or would you rather wait for a bigger and safer station, with decent bathrooms?

Join us at noon SLT on Saturday to discuss life at 500 km.  Bring a parachute!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.
