I have noticed that interior of the ISS appears to be very disorganized.
Let me clarify what I mean by that. I grew up watching Star Trek, and the Enterprise was the reference of clean space-faring vehicle. Things were in drawers, hidden. Or structured in a clean way. Computers were built into larger panels. There were touch screens. Have you noticed they always needed to uncover a panel to access some occasionally accessed system? It was minimalistic design.
When I look at the ISS, everything is everywhere, and it seems like nothing is attached firmly to the main frame. Things are just loosely attached to the wall and there are so many cables, devices, objects, ... that one wonders
- how do they not cut themselves all day with some sharp edge
- how do they not break or make a cable loose
- how come those objects, machines, devices did not break already by bumping into each other a long time ago
given there is no stabilizing force in a form of gravity.
Another aspect is psychological. How can those astronauts feel comfortable and focus on the job, when there is constant visual noise in their peripheral area?
