NASA recently released a quick rapid-fire video about some of the basics of living in the International Space Station. Astronaut Reid Wiseman answers questions about orbital life while walking around the full scale mock-up of the station at the Johnson Space Center.
Wiseman was selected to be an astronaut in 2009. At the time, he was a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy. He developed a desire to become an astronaut after seeing a space shuttle soar into space in 2001.
He was one of nine people NASA selected in 2009 to become astronauts. After basic astronaut training, Wiseman was selected to be part of the space station's Expedition 40/41 increment from May to November 2014. Launching from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Soyuz TMA-13M, he spent a total of 165 days in space. During his stay, he went on two spacewalks totaling 12 hours, 47 minutes.
