After a long period of time in space, simple tasks such as walking can be extremely difficult. Astronaut A.J. (Drew) Feustel, who returned to Earth after spending 197 days aboard the International Space Station, shared a video with him that tried to adapt to the gravity of the Earth.
Recorded Oct. 5, the video contains a visibly fragile Feustel, which is also trying to walk for a short distance.
Feustel tweeted, "Welcome home # SoyuzMS09! On Oct. 5, it looked like I returned to my eye after a field trial after 197 days @Space_Station when I returned to my heel and I hope the new crew feels much better. Video credit @IndiraFeustel. "

According to NASA, Expedition Commander 56 Drew Feustel and flight engineer Ricky Arnold this year completed the sixth space flight at the International Space Station. The video, which has become a virus, has been relatively buzzing on the social media, many of whom wished the astronaut to recover quickly.
Congratulations! I hope you have recovered quickly.
