Do you miss your hobbies (hockey and travel) in space?

In space, I just travel. Sometimes you don’t even notice how free time flies while you look at the Earth through the window and every time you see something new, unique. Even when you drive the same road on a car, you always see something new, and even more so from outer space, only much wider.

And the other hobbies … Still, the station has zero gravity, limited conditions and not much free time. We have our own funs: to fly without hitting anything. Once, when the shuttle flew in, we had another game, however, we didn’t come up with a name for it. The shuttle crew against the station command: who will last longer on each other without falling. Something like surfing, balancing on a water-laid board. Only instead of water, waves and we were weightlessness.

The best ways to maintain mental health in space are through communication with the family and reading literature. Under microgravity, the body is not so tired, so astronauts sleep, as a rule, only six hours a day. They can do this by simply flying in space or in special sleeping bags that hold the body in one place.
