The crew members currently on board the International Space Station are asleep, but they will be waking up in around 4 hours’ time, we have just heard.
Unconfirmed reports that upon waking they will begin furiously cleaning the station, stuffing unfolded laundry into cupboards and quickly chucking all other objects too cumbersome to tidy away into their bedrooms.
They’ll take a long swig of cooking sherry and look utterly cool and composed when they open the space door.
Essentially, this means the spacecraft is travelling exactly as it should, or, according to the Federal Aviation Administration: “if all vehicle aerodynamic parameters are exactly as expected, if all vehicle internal and external systems perform exactly as planned, and there are no external perturbing influences (e.g. winds) other than atmospheric drag.”
