In the Smarter Every Day video How to FLY A SPACESHIP to the SPACE STATION - Smarter Every Day 131 the host Destin Sandlin (seated in the center seat of a Soyuz capsule) asks astronaut Scott Kelly (seated on the left side) about reaching the controls especially when under high g force during launch to orbit.
Destin: When you’re actually flying here, you’re gonna be under intense acceleration, so how the heck do you push that button right there for example?
Kelly: The guy in this seat can kind of reach, but the guy in the center seat has a stick, he can push the buttons.
Destin: So he just grabs a stick and he sticks it up there.
Kelly: Yeah, it’s a fancy stick, but it’s a stick.
What does the "fancy stick" look like, and how fancy is it?
edit: This situation is not unique to Soyuz. Have there been other "fancy sticks"?
