"I would be amazed but also have to change my space diaper," says another.

"Can you try to avoid the bumps, I’m reading," jokes a user.

One user is impressed with what he says is "My guy just trying to do a crossword puzzle."

"The dude in the middle is reading the map and giving directions," remarks another.

Another says the astronaut is "just casually reading the newspaper."

"If I ever go to space I think they’ll need to give me a brown suit," says a video watcher.

"Oh hell no, I’m dizzy just seeing this," writes a commenter.

"OMG! That’s like ... more intense than I thought it would be," mentions a user. "It shouldn't have been, but it was."
