This class we are going to be discussing multiple things from the textbook. Re-read some of the sections you discussed later to make sure you understand all of it. Over at DormStormer we hope that this has helped bail you out of trouble.

13 Everyday Things That Are Harder To Do In Space

These things alone are good reasons why why I never want to live in space. Just imagine going number two...

1. Tortilla sandwiches anyone?

#1 floating-tortilla

Bread is not allowed in the space station because the crumbs would fly everywhere. So sandwiches have to be made with tortillas. 

2. Clipping your nails.

#2 nail-clipping

Nails have to be cut over air ducts otherwise they will fly away.

3. Getting your daily vegetables. 

#3 air-locked-food

Vegetables come in dehydrated packs and have to be rehydrated by a special machine before eating.

4. Drying out your towel. 

#4 towel

This doesn’t exactly work too well… 

5. Puking.

#5 Barf-bag

Astronauts are given specially made bags that keep their throw up contained.

6. Brushing your teeth.

#6 Brushing-teeth

The only condition about brushing your teeth is that you have to swallow the toothpaste.

7. Most of your desserts are pudding.

#7 eating-desserts

Doesn’t seem like a big deal to me. I’m pretty sure they still get to eat space ice cream, and that chocolate pudding looks delicious.

8. You have only one place where you can get a haircut.

#8 haircut

There’s a specially designed hair clipper on the international space station with an attached vacuum to suck up all the hair so it doesn’t fly all over the place.

9. You’ll go nuts over nuts.

#9 Floating-nuts

If you aren’t careful, you’ll have nuts everywhere. 

10. There are no sinks for you to wash your hands.

#10 floating-soap

However, they are given pre-packaged soap water that they rub on their hands.

11. No water can be used while shaving.

#11 Shave-gel

Instead astronauts use specially designed cream to prevent facial hair from floating away. 

12. Everyone knows when you’re crying.

#12 teary-eye

The tears just stick to your face. 

13. Sleeping isn’t easy. 

#13 sleeping-bag

You have to use a special tethered sleeping bag and sleep in a little compartment so you don’t float around and bang into things while you’re out cold. If you’re claustrophobic, you’re not going to make a good astronaut.
