Google Streetview Reveals Creepy Space Suits Inside International Space Station
| Last updated
Google Maps Streetview is creeping us out with this tour around the International Space Station (ISS).
We hoped we might bump into Tim Peake or another friendly face as we clicked our way through the ISS. But instead, we were met with these creepy space suits, which if angled correctly, stare directly back at you.
Among the items you would expect to come across on board the ISS - lots of clipboards, tubes, oxygen tanks etc, there are some more unusual items.
Every knuck and cranny of the ISS is packed tight with all of the equipment and essentials (and arguably, some non-essentials) the crew needs.
Or this French one where you can see inside the empty space suit? It looks like it's being occupied by a ghost. If you zoom in, you can just about make out a human being holding the Google Street View camera.
Let's hope there isn't a ghost up there, because it's pretty cramped inside the ISS and there's nowhere to run.
Other than the two space suits, the only signs of life onboard the ISS is the personal items strapped tightly to the walls.
Oh - and a Christmas stocking which belongs to Thomas (who's Thomas?). Are those felt tips? Perhaps astronauts like to unwind with some colouring in their free time up there - who knows.
There doesn't seem to be too much room for a game of basketball - and you sure as hell wouldn't want to break a window up there!
And just in case you get lost, somebody's brought along a World Atlas.
The crew like their stickers. Can you guess whose signatures these are?
Built between 1988-2011, the ISS is the largest structure humans have ever sent out into space. And it continues to grow and evolve. It was President Ronal Reagan who instructed NASA to build the ISS in 1984.
The first crew to occupy the ISS flew up there in the year 2000. They were: Astronaut Bill Shepherd and cosmonauts Yuri Gidzenko and Sergei Krikalev. Wonder if any of those signatures are theirs?
