ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet is sharing scenes from life on board the International Space Station during his second mission Alpha. He shared this video moving through NASAs Destiny laboratory, detailing the elements of a normal day in the research module.
From the exercise bike to the robotics workstation and all the research facilities, Thomas shows how astronauts work in the US space laboratory.
Over 200 experiments are planned during Thomas time in space, with 40 European ones and 12 new experiments led by the French space agency #CNES.
