I wonder what realm the astronauts play on... and what their latency is like.

Well, their connection can't be *that* good, since they are the definition of satellite internet!

Well, since they're sitting in the satellite, it should only be half as bad as a residential satellite link.

I'm wondering how you can play using a mouse in microgravity.

Don't tell me astronauts are keyboard turners.

They probably use locks so they don't have to move much

Bolt the desk "down" to the "floor", have the chair on a track that's attached to the same 'floor' and can be locked. Then, for awesome's sake, they stay in the chair with a jetpack facing "up".
