Tim Peake discusses the problem of sleeping whilst in the International Space Station. He refers to other astronauts describing they achieve the best sleep when up in space. Tim has to enter his crew quarters and then zip himself into his sleeping bag, which is secured against a wall. This will prevent him floating around whilst asleep and hurting himself. The space station lacks the usual natural triggers we have down on Earth, such as darkness and lying down.
