Adam Reflects on the Small Spaces Astronauts Must Endure

While visiting the National Air and Space Museum in August 2021, Adam stopped by the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project — the very first international human spaceflight — and marveled at the ambitious endeavor as well as the very small spaces (like this one) that astronauts must endure sometimes for weeks. Three men fit in that command module! Could you be confined like that?

  1. Mike Collins likened the Apollo Command Module interior to living in a men’s room, and the Lower Equipment Bay where the crew’s waste samples were stored was “a place to be avoided” by the end of a mission. Another astronaut “rebellion” occurred during Skylab, America’s first (and almost forgotten) space station. The crew grew so tired of Houston micro-managing their time, not to mention scheduling experiments during their time off, that they simply went on strike for a day and did as they pleased. I understand that gave mission planners a better understanding of the human element in space travel.

    In addition to Collins’ book, “Carrying the Fire,” I also recommend “Off the Planet” by American astronaut Jerry Linenger, which describes his adventures (and near-death experience) on the Mir space station, and “Endurance” by Scott Kelly, the “astro-twin” who spent over a year in microgravity aboard the ISS. You’ll understand why these people are genuine heroes.
