Tour the ISS

Regular readers know I’m not a huge fan of the International Space Station. With an unclear purpose and a $100+ billion price tag, I think the money might have been better spent on a better design. Still, it’s a space station, and it’s pretty cool. Cooler yet, NASA just put out a four-part series of videos of a tour of the ISS. It’s hosted by astronaut Mike Fincke (who, in microgravity, bears a weird resemblance to Louie Anderson), and he’ll show you various geegaws and gizmos on board.

Here’s Part 1.

… and here are Parts 2, 3, and 4.
