The Russian astronaut Anton Shkaplerov has uploaded in the networks cheerful video on which he in the conditions of zero gravity flies on an unusual “transport” means.
Очень часто спрашивают, а летаем ли мы на пылесосе по станции? Приходилось отвечать, что не пробовал. А тут во время субботника подумал, что уже третий полет… пора провести летные испытания пылесоса ✌😉🚀 // Flight tests of vacuum cleaner aboard the International Space Station pic.twitter.com/qQpoQx5OLL
