Astro Smiles: Laughs in Space

Astro Smiles: Laughs in Space

"Highly Recommended! This program shows the lighter side of space flight, and how zero gravity affects such basic things as yoyos, jacks, paper airplanes, gyroscopes, as well as basic human activities like sleeping, eating, and moving around. With the loss of the space shuttle 'Columbia,' a program such as this is important because it shows the human side of working and living in space, and how vital the astronauts and space flight are to the future of the human race." -EMRO Review
Astronaut Walter "Wally" Schirra, one of America's original Mercury Seven astronauts, and the only one who flew in all three of the nation's pioneering space programs, Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo, is the perfect host for this program that looks at the "lighter" side of space travel. Here, between important experiments and duties of the astronauts, we are treated to seeing the often zany side of life in space; where, because of the effects of zero gravity, upside down and right side up are not necessarily so and astronauts literally bounce off the walls. Produced by NASA. 2008 IJSCA 30 min.
