Leatherman in SPACE!
on: November 12, 2021, 03:21:31 AM
I was watching a replay of the SpaceX Crew-3 Dragon docking with the ISS, when they cut to a shot inside the ISS of astronaut Mark Vande Hei opening the inner hatch on the docking station (around 2:04:09 in the video linked).

 He appears to be wearing a nylon Leatherman sheath horizontally on his belt.

I wonder if it’s one of the special edition NASA ones.

After the title of this thread I was hoping to see a pic of a PST looming over a lunar landscape like the monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I wonder if the astronaut brought his own Leatherman up with him, or if it stays on board as station equipment.  :think:

I remember seeing a SAK either tethered or velcroed to a wall of the ISS in a previous video; I assumed that it just stays up there.

Many astronauts take their own MT with them. Chris Hadfield used his official issue Master Craftsman to break into the Mir space station, and Clayton C. Anderson used his Free P4 when a specialized valve-release tool went missing.

Missing....WHERE?!!!

I don't spend much time in space stations these days, but I imagine there's a limited number places it can go....

What did they do, leave it on the roof when they drove off?

That's what I keep saying about the knives and tools that HAVE to be in my house.

They left it in that safe place where they leave important things so they dont forget them?

They left it in the last place they'll ever look?

They left it in the airlock when the purged the Alien (1979) out?

After touring the ISS virtually, I have no difficulty in believing that things get lost up there. Every single surface is covered with equipment, wiring, and supplies, plus there's the fact that an item can "fall" in any direction, not just "down" as on Earth.  :ahhh
