  1. Waiting to wave at you on ISS while you flyover near my home Alexander. You and all single person behind you are true Heroes ❤️🚀👋🏻🙂🇧🇬

  2. So cramped in there, how do you prevent limited blood flow in the legs? I know that if I sit with my legs up like that for longer than a few minutes, my legs start to feel very painful and fall asleep due to limited blood flow.

  3. On the firing point;

    The soyouz is vertical to the earth.

      1- the stuffed animals are in the same position as a plumb bob!

      "presumably normal"

    And when the silk and horizontal of the earth (see animation 6.00)

      2 – the stuffed animals are always in the same position (of attraction?), But not like a plumb line?

       "facing the earth"

    Definition: The plumb line is a tool consisting of a weighted yarn (plush) used to obtain verticals (or at least the direction of gravity (facing the earth) at a precise location).

    And I do not (if you allow me) "think" that it is neither the speed, nor the thrust, nor the acceleration, nor the deceleration which keeps in the same position of constant tension these stuffed animals?
