It's like "Slow TV" but for space geeks...

Remember a few years back when the Scandinavian import to Netflix was "Slow TV" featuring long train rides or marathon knitting sessions?  All of these were shown in real-time, using high-quality cameras, except nothing was edited for time.

May I present to you the Slow TV equivalent for space geeks - an 8 hour spacewalk shown in real-time:

I left this running for a bit in a background window today, and it was very soothing! I wish my workday was in microgravity!!

I can only imagine what it would be like to have a camera following me for 8 hours during my workday.  There would be interesting times during the day, like during classes and labs. Then, there would be the hours of tedious email answering and trying to get stuff prepped for the next class. Clearly there is a reason that type of Slow TV has never been attempted. 😄
