Russian cosmonaut Ivan Wagner spoke about the challenges of living in zero-gravity during the broadcast on the YouTube channel “Roscosmos TV”.
According to him, the most difficult is “prolonged isolation in a confined space” and living conditions. While Wagner noted that people can get used to everything.
The astronaut also said that in weightlessness, it is difficult to draw. “Even the handwriting is to observe and to write properly in zero gravity is more difficult than on Land,” he said.
Wagner admitted that after returning to Earth, will miss day and night views from the window, and also in weightlessness.
At the moment Ivan Wagner is part of the ISS crew together with Anatoliy Ivanishin and NASA astronauts Christopher Cassidy, Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken. They continued their expedition planned program.
Earlier it was reported that the ISS had to change its orbit to avoid collision with space debris. Surgery for the correction of the orbit produced by the mission control Center TsNIIMash (included in “Roscosmos”). For this maneuver was used by the engines of the cargo ship “Progress MS-14”, which docked to the instrument compartment of the Zvezda module of the ISS Russian segment.
