So you think you have a really bad cable nightmare behind your home theater system or under your desk at work? Look at this photo above taken aboard the International Space Station, and think again.

This pretty horrific cable mess was caused by ESA astronaut Tim Peake and NASA astronaut, space station commander Tim Kopra, both working on rerouting cables in order to upgrade communications. As the British spaceman tweeted jokingly:

Don’t worry NASA, Tim Kopra and I have got this space station under control… now where did this cable go?


A funny joke told me two men floating in a tin can.
