An Amazing Short Journey.

We sometimes lose the grasp of real superpowerdom, but it is enough to lift our eyes towards the skies and recall that 250 miles above us the material embodiment of scientific and engineering genius of Russians, Americans, Japanese and Europeans circles the Earth. It is absolutely amazing what International Space Station represents in these nations' cooperation. It also represents a club of nations so elite, so exclusive, that it is sometimes difficult to convey how incredible they could be in creating true technological marvels which are beyond the grasp of most. Want to see a real hi-tech? Here, Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemiev runs the longest route in ISS. It is fascinating. Some people complain that it is claustrophobic--those people forget what Vostok or Gemini looked like. Well, or Project 613 (NATO-Whiskey-class) subs, for that matter. ISS is vast.
