As a non-astronaut, I’d never even imagined this would be a problem for them after coming back to Earth. Yet, it makes a lot of sense. Considering, whenever we get on the roller coasters all day long and our body’s still feel as if we’re still riding them on the drive home. Or being on a cruise ship for a couple of days or a week. I guess it’s our minds and body getting accustomed to certain things only to suddenly going back to normal
@ThorOdinnson, yeah. Our brains have the remarkable ability to normalize just about anything. Heat, cold, thin air, high humidity, etc, etc. You'd never think lack of gravity would be on the list, but it most certainly is. If you ever have the time, you should read some of the stories of astronauts getting used to being back on Earth. It's pretty fascinating.
@ThorOdinnson, I get the same feeling after I go on a ski trip, your feet still feel like they're in those constricting boots, and walking can feel weird because your weight distribution is different when you're on skis.
@megamanx181x, it's always bringing me down
@unknownjanitor, I think he just needs some space
I thought at first it was going to be done magic trick
You can tell how used he was to zero gravity cause the first thing was look up
I’m currently working on a project revolving around NASA and I’ve been thinking about stuff like this a lot lately. Like can you image what it’s like to sleep in space? Half of the. Comfort of sleeping is feeling the weight of the bed underneath you and if you’re just floating you don’t get to feel that.

I did this when I met my biological family. We celebrated my 21st and because of the nerves of meeting them i went a bit heavier than normal, being already 22 at the time, and had to one up my brother in-law who had a half Jack and coke with a glass of straight Jack. After finishing it well let's just say the glass didn't make out as good as the pen. Also dont pick up broken glass barehanded while drunk.
I didn't see the pen drop to the floor
