This was inspired by my trip to the European Astronaut office in the spring. The Columbus module is the heart of the ESA science programme on the ISS. If anyone has been following Commander Chris Hadfield at the moment you'll have seen the inside of the module in his pod-casts, as the CSA and ESA work together.
The photo this cartoon is based on was taken by the crew of the space shuttle Atlantis,credit to NASA :)
Ed: A couple of people have asked if this is rotoscoped- it's not, I've drawn all of it by hand using the touch pad on my laptop and MS Paint :)
