      Hi Supersonic!
      No, it’s not always super busy. There are periods in which we have really a lot of activities inside Columbus, which makes are super busy, and there are periods in which there are less activities.
      This doesn’t mean we have nothing to do, because even if nothing is happening today, we always have to prepare for what will happen in the near future.

      This is particularly important in space operations, because at some point some important anomaly or event might happen that will keep you super busy even if you didn’t expect so, and so you will have no time to do what you had planned to do. So it’s always good to keep ahead of schedule! 😉
