    ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano and NASA astronaut Drew Morgan take you on a unique tour of the International Space Station shot in one take with two cameras strapped together. Luca and Drew take it in turns to guide you through the modules and spacecraft docked to the orbital outpost.
    Starting from the Soyuz MS-15 spacecraft that bought Drew to the Space Station, the duo show each module and spacecraft docked with the International Space Station at the time it was recorded around the New Year 2020. Passing colleagues include NASA astronaut Jessica Meir and Christina Koch exercising and Russian cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Skripochka.
    This is the first tour of the International Space Station with two astronauts presenting and the first done in a single take.
    At the time of recording three supply vehicles were docked, the Russian Progress MS-13, Space-X’s Dragon-19 and Northrup Grumman’s Cygnus-12, as well as two astronaut vehicles the Soyuz MS-15 and Soyuz MS-13.
    The map overlay graphic erroneously shows the future Nauka module instead of Pirs. The Russian Multipurpose Laboratory Module Nauka is planned for launch in the future and will replace Pirs, but we put it on the map already.

      Half of the Universe is BEHIND the Earth. Well, technically is true that "the rest" is in the opposite direction.

    4. Danita Spears

      GREAT video... probably one of the best I’ve ever seen! I loved the impromptu moments! One of the best parts was the graphic that shows exactly where you are on the Station as you are touring through.👏🏾As a tech and organization nerd, my slight OCD wants to send an Astro “organization” specialist of some sort to the ISS to help the astronauts organize all of those modules while they continue on with their important work! I mean, really... with all of the technology that they have, I refuse to believe that a more organized system of maintaining the station cannot be developed given the modular/dynamic structure that was conveyed in the video. Just look at the SpaceX crew dragon as an example of seamless technology with accessibility! 🤷🏽‍♀️

        Thank you very much for your kind words and watching, Danita!

      a space organizer should be sent up there lol In a serious note, you do not get the sun on your skin. How do you get vit D? is it a problem for your health?

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        Thanks for watching! Even when they are taking extra vitamin D, International Space Station crew members often have a lower amount of vitamin D in their blood after flight than they did before flight. Nutritional Biochemistry Laboratory scientists have performed studies in Antarctica to determine how effective different amounts of supplemental vitamin D would be in space.

      Why take such a large/heavy camera into space when something just as good like a gopro would would be much lighter a cheaper to launch from a payload point of view? Just asking, not knocking.

      Going to the ISS was the ultimate way of dodging COVID

    18. Ed Frees

      Could someone tell me what are these blue and red dots I see at the beginning of the stream? Example 0:28

      1. Ed Frees

        @European Space Agency, ESA Thank you, I understand.

      2. European Space Agency, ESA

        Thanks for watching, Ed! Those are "dead pixels". They happen when the sensor of the camera is affected by cosmic radiation burning that area of the sensor, not letting it capture light and consequently, appearing like grainy dots in the footage.

    19. Joao Cruz

      Congratulations the sketch in the down left side is very useful and finally I understand how the ISS is and where the modules engage with each other! Thank you very much and godspeed! Nb: if there's lapses in language I'm sorry. Its not my mother tongue. Greetings from PORTUGAL

      MSNBC in the background was strong 2020 energy. Great tour! Finally understand which way is "up".

        Thanks for watching, Ethan!

    29. Patrick A

      It's insane to me to think, each and every inch that camera pans across, is millions and millions of dollars.

    30. Patrick A

      2:37 "and there's computers in here for navigation, and computer shit." two and a half minutes in and I am laughing my ass off.

        Glad you enjoyed it, Roberto!

    34. Lauge Kristense

      Inception looks really good

    35. Patrick Fagan

      Is that background noise coming from the camera or is it actually coming from the iss?

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        The "noise" you hear is the ambient sound aboard the ISS

    36. deeham78

      Best tour ever

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        Thanks a lot for watching!

    37. deeham78

      Shame I’m watching this in 2021 and the month after they came down Covid started shame

    38. TWSTF 8

      Video cameras are MUCH smaller, and more compact nowadays lol they should really consider upgrading some of their early 80's technology, i mean, a Go-Pro only weighs a couple ounces and the resolution/mps is quite sufficient! Especially since they do charge by the weight, when launching material and people into space, you know what I mean?! 🤣

    39. JimKappy Kappelman

      What is that little model looking taking in the bottom left corner off the screen? It has a fishing red light on the to of them upper right arm?

    40. hexalone

      Why do all astronauts look like there heads are being pulled into their shoulders ? It just looks uncomfortable as all hell.

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        Under microgravity conditions, fluids tend to go "up" and that's why their upper-body and heads are "bloated"

    41. Zelda

      I wish i'm to in the space.

    42. Paul Millington

      That tour was great guys.

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        Thanks a lot for watching, Paul!

    43. Jerpon Emyce

      ISS looks like a messy cyberpunk dormitory. I know there's a lot of science that they have to do. But, I hope they will also consider cleaning it. Assessing what each equipment is doing, should they arranged it, throw things that are not necessary or replace things that must be replaced (if resources allow). I like ISS but I have OCD.

    44. Jerpon Emyce

      Luca - last universal common ancestor


      Those pants he’s wearing are out of this world I wish I had a pair if those (the black ones with the stripes)


      It's amazing, Supporto dall'italia,quanto vorrei che i telegiornali parlassero anche di ciò...

    47. Regolith

      FANTASTIC video! Best ISS tour video I've seen. Thank you!

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for watching!

    48. Harold the Barrel

      What's with the huge camera's? Movie size...

    49. Cattis NotlikeallSwe

      I wonder one thing though! Why on earth/space doesn't the female space travelers cut their hair super short? It looks 👎 and to respect the others they should cut it couse it probably flote around so others can get it in their mouths. 🤔🤔

    50. Cattis NotlikeallSwe

      You two Astronauts are adorable!! This video is very nicely done for us regular people to get a good look at your Space Mansion.. I rank you both to be the Sweeties Men in Space.. Thank you for the video. I learned a lot from it .. 🤗❤️🤗

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        We are glad you enjoyed it, Cattis! Thanks a lot for watching!

    51. Karen From Finasse

      22:06 Sticking the straw in a Capri-Sun the right way was prep for being an astronaut all this time?

    52. Karen From Finasse

      I know we landed on the moon in the 60s, but it still somehow seems crazy to me to think there are people floating in space around the Earth all the time. It's cool, but still mind-blowing.

    53. Dj dark momi

      coffee or tea can we drink them

    54. Dj dark momi

      can we eat bread eggs with tea

    55. Andrea Gualdi

      Thanks guys! Happy new year!!!

    56. David Brown

      I hope they didn't do any drilling whilst in the Russian segments.

    57. KacangNgoding

      The best virtual tour ever!

      thank you for this. I love it and I also never get tired of these. 13 is not unlucky. My favorite

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        Glad you enjoy it! Thanks for watching!

    61. Advice From Jay

      Glad that the secrets are starting to die down us as humans have the right to know what’s going on above our head 👊🏽❤️

    62. James Cooper

      You have to be able to cool a fire in space. Something the blows cold air! Freezing, or cool enough to cool off the fire!?

    63. civil media

      God allways with u

    64. No one At all

      Surprise by how used and worn out it is

    65. ss555 555

      Luca and Drew are the perfect tour guides. If it were any other pair of astronauts or cosmonauts it just would not have had that chemistry these two have together. You can tell they are very close friends. Thank you ESA and NASA for training these astronauts (and also thank you JAXA and Roscosmos for your astro/cosmonauts and contribution to the ISS!). I wish Luca and Drew did a separate 30 minute chat in front of the video talking about repairing the AMS-02. The repair of that instrument was one of the greatest spacewalking feats in human history. It was like a Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission. Also I wish they had the BEAM module hatch door opened and ready to show us the inside and teach us about it. The only time I saw a ISS crewmember actually show us the inside of BEAM was a Russian cosmonaut back in 2018. The BEAM is paid by and sponsored by NASA so it should be included in all ISS tours.

    66. Shield Gaming

      That's been really awesome, many thanks!

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        You're very welcome! Thanks for watching!

    67. DoctorGarkle

      I just won a free trip to the ISS! I am stoked. Do they have any good restaurants in it?

    68. steven scott

      great work boys

      What happen if you get sick or puke ??

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        There are bags - like those in airplanes - to keep everything "in place"

    70. Jeff of the hill people

      when did Jean Luc Picard develop an Italian accent?

    71. Ildirimzade Hasan

      Bro it cool that there no coronavirus in space

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        Indeed! Yet some studies have been performed in space in combat COVID on Earth:

    72. Catherine Sanders

      Soooo if Earth is supposed to “collide” with Jupiter.... Why are those astronauts up in space? 😂😂😂

      1. Catherine Sanders

        @Project Starter Yeah it was just a random conspiracy theory I heard which I found humorous. But it is truly is amazing how far Jupiter is from Earth. It took Juno a good few years to get there. The Solar System is truly amazing.

      2. Project Starter

        Jupiter is so far away that it's not really possible to comprehend how far away it is on a human scale. We're not going anywhere near Jupiter. But let's just say we were, I have no idea why being down on earth would be any better? For one thing you'd have a better view from space

      3. Catherine Sanders

        @European Space Agency, ESA I didn’t think so but there are theories 😂

      4. European Space Agency, ESA

        Earth isn't supposed to collide with Jupiter 😅

    73. Jin Oki

      I love the international cooperation, truly beautiful. This is how it should be everywhere

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        We love it too!

    74. Matthew Walker

      This is so cool, I just watched another video on the space station and this gave some wonderful context. As an american, Thank you to the ESA and all the space programs participating in the ISS. Teamwork makes the Dream work!

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        Glad you enjoyed it, Matthew! We couldn't agree more!

    75. buge

      " Hello everyone, it is 2020..." Oh no

      1. ss555 555

        This was filmed in like the first week of 2020, haha...the ISS is the only thing that has remained peaceful and constant in this messed up year. In fact I think the ISS is the only thing keeping the peace between the USA and Russia. Incredibly after all these decades they are still so friendly with each other when it comes to space.

    76. Thomas Stern

      There are computers in here for navigations and... computation" thanks Luca

      That is very nice, all accommodation is there, I want to know the favorite degrees at sunshine and shadow, thank you.

    80. Vernon Schaal

      What i want to know is do they have sex at the space station.

      1. Shan Anvarsha

        Without gravity, I'd imagine that it'd be quite difficult

      Politics are not a thing in Space < very good!

    82. suburbans nation

      720p resolution, space program??? Whatta hell... Kids have better cameras...

      1. Matthew Walker

        They passed a section with at least 10 DSLR Cameras. You would think one of them can record in 1080p lol

    83. Mohammed Hussain

      Amazing video, thanks! Also every view on ISS is 4 times a view on earth, i.e due to orientation lol. Not sure if that's overloading an astronaut?

    84. Orange Betsy

      cameras don't require any gimbal for smoothness in microgravity--just float it over haha

      1. European Space Agency, ESA

        Easy-peasy lemon squeezy 😉

      A couple of thing's. I wonder how long it takes to learn to "fly" around without crashing into thing's & with all those cable's hanging about does anyone ever accidentally yank 1 out?

    98. Fliverly

      I want to become an astronaut now! I’ve always loved space ever since I saw the night sky and these ISS videos are giving me hope that I might be able to achieve my life long dream. And hopefully some closed-minded people don’t discourage me to the point of giving up
