Do you dream of touring the International Space Station but can’t wait until commercial space flight takes off in an affordable manner?
Thanks to French astronaut and ISS inhabitant Thomas Pesquet, you can tour the ISS for yourself in a gorgeous 360-degree video.
It’s a short trip, only one minute, but it does what it says in the description: it lets you “immerse yourself in this brief but unique fly-through [of] humankind’s orbital outpost.”
Because it’s in 360-degrees, you can manipulate the camera to fully see the module interiors and spot unprecedented details.
The trip starts from the Node 3 module on the ISS, known as Tranquility, and goes up to Europe’s Columbus laboratory in an amazing display of technological advancement.
You can see in the map below, thanks to ESA, exactly where Thomas Pesquet is gliding through.
Feel free to also check out the rest of the videos on the page, as there are many more 360-degree tours of ISS modules – Columbus, Harmony and Nauka.
