Towel day on the International Space Station


Don’t panic! This is the story of a book, a book called The Hitchiker?s Guide to the Galaxy, a wholly remarkable book.

ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti reads from Douglas Adam?s ?The Hitchhiker?s Guide to the Galaxy? for towel day from the European laboratory Columbus on the International Space Station.

The Guide has a few things to say on the subject of towels. A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.

To all you froods on the mostly harmless planet Earth, happy towel day!

Towel Day is an annual celebration on 25 May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams when fans around the universe proudly carry a towel in his honour.
