New videos of space tourist videos present the life of Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa in the orbit

Posting about the fun on the ISS

Yusaku Maezawa is having a great time demonstrating life aboard the International Space Station.

The Japanese entrepreneur has been uploading videos to YouTube of his orbital experiences aboard the International Space Station, showcasing everything. He documented everything from how to complete everyday tasks in microgravity to the outfit he was wearing and the breathtaking view out the window.

On December 8, Maezawa, video producer Yozo Hirano, and cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin arrived at the International Space Station aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. The three space tourists will return to Earth on Sunday, December 19th, and their landing will be streamed live online.

Maezawa and Hirano paid for their tickets, which they booked through the Virginia company Space Adventures.

All of Maezawa’s videos can be seen on his mission’s YouTube website. The toilet on the Russian side of the space station is shown in the first video below. Maezawa explains how to deal with “No. 1” with the help of a hose and plenty of sanitary wipes. He also offers suggestions for avoiding unpleasant odors and messes.

Sharing experiences through short clips

The next video is a five-minute demonstration of how difficult it is to wash one’s teeth in space. “I’m the type who uses a lot,” Maezawa quips as he meticulously squirts toothpaste onto his toothbrush. While his mouth is still full, he discovers he failed to bring a wet washcloth to help wipe up, which prompts some amusing on-camera adjustments. To avoid spoiling the surprise, we’ll let you view the clip.

As another clip demonstrates, there are numerous ways to enjoy the microgravity experience. Maezawa promises to float silently at first, “without moving a single finger.” Due to air currents going through the space station, this causes some drift.

The new spaceflyer opens his eyes after keeping them closed for a while and experiences a moment of confusion: “I have no idea what direction I’m facing right now,” he says, prompting a momentary meditation on the difficulties of people adapting to space.
