    how do astronauts shit? Since there isn't gravity, will the poop float back up and hit the butt? Or do they shit in a can and seal it right after?

    You didn't mention the other (most important) reason astronauts really need to eat properly: if they under-eat, the bodymass becomes top-heavy. So they have a calorie-rich diet with regular exercise to maintain body mass.

    Posted this one to my FB page, my brother worked at the SSPF (Space Station Processing Facility) , a Boeing operation, this is where final assembly before launch was done, I saw Node 1 during a special tour when it was in the high bay prior to launch prep. My brother worked upstairs in logistics where they schedule when stuff enters, a bag of bolts doesn't enter until scheduled to. Also saw shuttle Discovery, she was in a hanger, wheels off, engines out and being processed for a future mission then, huge machine, the belly hatches for fuel were open, you could fit a bowling ball in em, 1000s of gals per sec of fuel go thru those during launch.

    NASA food is made in Texas with supermarket ingredients. Those Astronauts are eating H.E.B food. That's why H.E.B is better than Walmart.

    They should send a vlogger to the ISS.
    Well, he/she still should be an astronaut that do other things because otherwise it would be a waste of money, but he/she could have a less busy schedule to vlog what's happening in the ISS and just how living in the iss feels like...

  • Rodolpho's Tech channel

    Just shows how behind we are on space tech. Decades behind compared to those sci-fi movies we watch. Hopefully in 20-30 years space tech will be more viable and efficient. We can't even grow food in space yet. We can't even have artificial gravity or build larger living spaces to those stations. It's like our space tech still in the steam age... We haven't gone to petrol or electric. We can't even visit regularly our closest moon and don't even have a base there...at this pace we won't even finish exploring our solar system before the end of the 21 century

    No fridge? Seriously . . . . . . there is no fridge on the ISS? I find that surprising and hard to believe: genuinely surprising to learn that but does that mean they have to drink the milk from the cows on board and just throw . . . . . . . . . .THE COWS ARENT REAL ??? . . . . . . .

    Serious question here: how do astronauts take care of their sexual needs? I know for a fact you can't have sex in space, and I also doubt that personal pleasure is allowed because I could see problems occuring. Maybe they have instruments made for those purposes?
    If they have no way of taking care of those needs, "No Nut November" was probably just another November to these people.

    • AuraDigital
      AuraDigital 26 days ago

      @a d I'm talking rules and regulations. Haveing sex in space poses a significant safety hazard in many ways as well as major issues in professionalism. I do imagine that physical functions being an issue on its own, however.

    How strange. I thought the ISS had been a big disappointment from a science point of view, with very few research outputs that couldn’t have been done on Earth.

      That's what alot of people which are against "extreme science" (space, quantum, relativity related subjects) research say. However they just read a message on a forum made by someone which no idea and take that of granted, which is pretty sad knowing that even reading those forums is made possible by these research fields.

    I am a big fan of space, being an Aerospace Engineer.


    The space station is a complete waste of money, and new methods they have developed could have been done with a much simpler solution.
    This money should have been spent on Moon and/or Mars stations, not wasted.
    It took 50 years from the fist plane flight until we gone to the Moon, 50 years later and this is all we have! it is shameful.
