Inside the International Space Station's Tool Kit

By Jamie Condliffe on at

When you're floating in space, it pays to be prepared, so it's perhaps no surprise that the International Space Station packs a pretty impressive tool kit. Those obsessed by workshops and making, prepare to drool.

These images were snapped by Tim Peake, a British astronaut who will work on the ISS from 2015 onwards. He photographed the five-drawer kit during his training, and shoved the resulting images on Flickr for the world to see.

Aside from being sensationally well organised, it's also incredibly comprehensive and, like any good tool kit, includes a large hammer and a crow bar. But is there anything you think they missed out? [Flickr via Blame it on the Voices via Neatorama]
