CoVid-19 News: Astronauts Come Home to Surreal New World

Read Time:1 Minute, 51 Second
Boldly returning to a new kind of Earth

To the brave men and women orbiting Earth on the International Space Station, coming home will be a “surreal” experience.

Quarantining is nothing new to astronauts — as featured in Apollo 13, it’s never a good idea to be sick in space — but it’s new to return to Earth and enter quarantine. As our current roster of astronauts on the ISS rotate out and Soyuz home, they’re returning to a planet vastly different than the one they left.

With CoVid-19 cases at 3,081,410 world-wide, and a death rate of 212,337 (as of today on the WorldOMeter), the space explorers are returning to a dystopian nightmare, straight out of a science fiction movie.

Movie Watching Must Have!!

I go feral for this app. I love it so much and I wish everyone knew about it and used it. It is incredibly useful and I would be devastated if this app ever disappeared. Things I love: 1) the pee times! It’s so handy to know the best time to go and then read the synopsis of what’s happening while I’m gone. I never have to worry about missing the good bits! 2) knowing if there is a post-credits scene or not. This might be my fav feature because I would have missed out on some pretty critical scenes if it weren’t for RunPee. 3) the movie review and viewer rankings. This info has made me watch some movies that I normally wouldn’t and it’s nice seeing things outside of my usual scope. 4) that it’s a small family run business. I love shopping small and it really does feel like I’m part of the RunPee family! If you reach out to them, Dan will personally respond to you and he is so warm and helpful. GET THIS APP AND THEN SUBSCRIBE! It is absolutely worth it and you’ll be using it again and again!

ILFScience! reports that Cosmonaut Oleg Skrypochka, and US astronauts Jessica Meir and Andrew Morgan made a successful parachute landing on April 17, 2020, after spending between seven and nine months in space.

“It’s quite surreal to see it unfolding on Earth below,” Meir said at a news conference on April 10. “We can tell you the Earth looks just as stunning from up here, so it’s difficult to believe all the changes that have taken place.”

The astro/cosmonauts had been in touch with friends, family and society during their tenure, and were aware of the awful pandemic sweeping the globe. However, it’s notable that the planet itself looked the same to them. Meir said, “We can tell you the Earth looks just as stunning from up here, so it’s difficult to believe all the changes that have taken place.”

The Earth spins on, with or without humanity, indifferent to our woes. And as the global lockdown revealed, the environment started to heal in our absence. What lessons we take from this horrific experiment remains to be seen.

A good time to watch space and astronaut based movies

At RunPee, we salute Earth’s most intrepid explorers! We respectfully suggest honoring them in our own quarantines by rewatching some quality (and one slightly less honorable) astronaut films. You can probably guess most of the space movies on our list. Let me know what we left off.

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all wide release films every week, including DUNE part II, Drive Away Dolls, and coming soon King Fu Pana, The American Society of Magical Negroes, Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, and Godzilla x Kong: The new Empire  and many others. We have literally thousands of Peetimes—from classic movies through today’s blockbusters. You can also keep up with movie news and reviews on our blog, or by following us on Twitter @RunPee. If there’s a new film out there, we’ve got your bladder covered.
