This question is answered NASA engineer and instructor Robert Frost. Working week to the ISS lasts 5, 5 days, the rest 1 to 5 days are considered weekend. The output does not mean that it is not made absolutely no work, just for this time in terms of anything is not put. Still remain relevant and unscheduled mandatory items, such as physical exercise.

On Earth day due to the rotation of the planet on its axis. The International Space Station sunrise and sunset occur every few tens of minutes, and the daily cycle is caused by the need to comply with human biorhythms.

Sleep is allocated 8, 5 hours, but due to noise ventilation sleep can be difficult, so many nedosypaet . Day divided by 6, 5:00 planning work, 2, 5:00 exercise, 1 hour for lunch. Take the time to communicate with the Earth on the planning of the day, preparing for work (read instructions and collection tools), acquaintance with the work plan. And yet the time spent preparing for sleep, hygiene, breakfast and dinner.

Free time can take a variety of ways : protorchat with your camera «Купола» (Module, which offers a beautiful view of the Earth), watch videos, chat, read books and news. But there are specific activities, which are not available on the surface of the planet - it's the effects of microgravity. Not everyone in life get the chance to play with the ball floating in the air, water.
