Here's What an Astronaut Dreams & Thinks About After Being in Space

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard


Space experiences from the point of view of an astronaut are always interesting to hear about. In this video, Helen Sharman, who in 1991 became the first Briton in space, recalls dreams that she has had while asleep since her experiences in space.

What can be assumed from watching the video and listening to Sharman is that space is a surreal experience that you never really get over. Your mind always wonders about it, wonders what you really just experienced, and wonder about your existence.

Sharman explains that while in space, she felt disconnected from the Earth in a kind of way. It wasn't that she didn't feel like it was her home, but instead, it felt different as a human to be off of her home planet.

The video also details some of what Sharman says were a part of her dream and illustrates it so it's better understood.
