In recent decades the topic of humans living in space has slowly become a possibility. With the advent of the International Space Station and various countries looking to explore Mars, other organizations talking about commercial space travel, it is an exciting time to be alive.
However, for many of us visiting space in our life might be a longshot given the costs that are associated with it. It doesn't hurt to sometimes wonder and explore what living in space would be like.
Things like: given that there is no gravity, how does one move around and do simple tasks like eating that we don’t even think twice about while on Earth. Also, what do you see once you leave the Earth’s atmosphere?
That's why for this episode of The Tefo Mohapi Show we are joined by Terry Virts, a retired NASA astronaut and former commander of the International Space Station.
Terry not only spent hundreds of days in space aboard the International Space Station doing spacewalks among many other activities, but he is also arguably one of the most prolific photographers of space. So much so that he has an amazing IMAX documentary on space.
Terry continues to do some work that is important for the human species including a project he is involved in Afrika. He shares more about that in this episode as well.
