Watch astronauts casually ride a rocket flying into space at 18,000 miles per hour
Very few people ever have the opportunity to fly into space. If SpaceX and Blue Origin manage to make space tourism a real thing, that could change, but for now it's a pretty exclusive club. Being strapped into capsule perched above a powerful rocket sounds like it might be pretty scary, or at least exciting, but the latest video from ESA makes it all seem like a casual morning commute.
In the video, astronauts Serena Auñón-Chancellor, Roscosmos commander Sergei Prokopyev, and ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst are shown riding a Russian Soyuz spacecraft into the sky at speeds of nearly 18,000 miles per hour. All things considered, they seem very relaxed about the entire thing.
