Banjo time with Thomas Pesquet! #shorts

European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet shared this video on social media with the caption:

100 days in space for #MissionAlpha. It feels like a long time ago, but we also installed new toilets shortly after arriving. I was looking at the procedures on the tablet velcroed to my thigh, and yes, this filter looked so much like a banjo, I had to. The same video specialist at ESA who edits the timelapse videos (and much, much more!), Melanie Cowan, spotted this clip from the Space Station onboard camera views, added some music and the result is perfectly embarrassing! . True story: I actually helped Mark on this day. A little. Maybe. No one knows.

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.
