What The International Space Station Would Look Like If It Orbited At 10,000 Feet

This is a visualization imagining the International Space Station orbiting earth at 10,000-feet instead of 254 miles. For reference, most commercial flights cruise between 33,000 and 42,000 feet, so this is comparatively low. AND FAST. Around 17,150MPH (37,600km/h) fast. It really zooms. It’s crazy to think the astronauts up there in that thing aren’t just getting smashed against the walls and turned to jelly, but, FULL DISCLOSURE: the only thing I know about physics is it should start with an F. “Like your grades.” YES MOM, LIKE MY GRADES.
