Pic of the Insides of Dragon While Docked With the ISS

André Kuipers, a physician with the European Space Agency, aboard the ISS, had a chance to take this photograph while SpaceX's Dragon supply vehicle was docked with the station.

He also wrote,

  • Inside of the Dragon module. Beautiful. Spacious, Modern. Blue LEDs. Feels a bit like a sci-fi filmset. Of course it is from Los Angeles.
Yep, even though we have seen it before, there is something about seeing it while it is working. The light DO add to the futuristic feel, don't they.

Take out the blue led's and darken it up a bit and it would look like a nice place for an alien to be hiding in wait. Not that such nasty ideas would ever enter my mind though.
You know, I was wondering about this awhile back. I wonder if they try to ever spook each other up there. To be honest, after about a half day of me up there, I'd probably end up knowing what space felt like. It would almost be worth it too.

NASA will broadcast the release reentry and splashdown. They will have a briefing on the NASA channel at 10am EDT, on Wednesday morning.
All info can be found on this on this link.

Hey you should have put that up as an article all to its own Kallamis! Took the liberty of doing just that!
Thanks for the heads up
