Astronaut Scott Kelly answers questions from YouTube creators

Awesome, literally the first thing I always think when I see an astronaut floating is about how ‘free-fall’ must feel. With no external factors like air resistance to tell you that you are falling through some medium, I wonder how much of the experience is edited out by normal consciousness and how much of the gut-wrenching feeling is derived from bodily sensation as opposed to perception of external factors.

I wonder if they dream of micro-gravity once back on earth and if the blood-pressure drop/falling feeling sometimes experienced when falling (lol) asleep gets interpreted differently because of their bodies memory of the gravity in orbit.
