      de gehele dag al geen enkele informatie over de ISS
      zelfs geen tracking info beschikbaar
      staat er iets spannends op de agenda gepland?

      You can also float around at your own (don't need a crane or other things for lifting you) and do stunning physical acts during the show. No perfect stage, however, you always have to take care not to accidentally touch switches (the most important ones have a contact protection, therefore) or start anything you would not like to have done. ;-)

      yes, it would be really cool to do a music video there, it would be spectacular even taking the limited space into account.

      A fascinating phenomena to note is that adding "space" to most common things amplifies just how cool they are.

      Guitar. Cool.
      Space Guitar. Amazing.

      The wonderful thing about the ISS is that all parties involved realized the need to provide the crew with some purely recreational items to keep them from burning out. (Looking at the Earth from space would have to be wonderful, but you could probably only do it for so long before it becomes... a bit familiar, and about as recreational as looking out your bedroom window. Or at least, that's what this non-astronaut guesses.)

      Providing the crew with a guitar, a keyboard, the video conference with family and friends, the internet connection, and the DVD player and library (a few hundred discs now, I hear!) is probably one of the most important aspects of keeping a crew happy and productive when they're on orbit for six months; they have ways to unwind and make their workplace feel more like a home. I'm sure that it's not the most comfortable/pleasant place to live (though a vast improvement over many past long-duration options, including Skylab and Mir), but those small pleasures should help immensely.

      I guess it's one of the lessons learned with long term operations of space stations: Astronauts are people too and need a rhythm of work, rest and recreation to stay healthy and productive. Very important for any future manned missions to other planets where it's impossible to get anyone back home quickly.
