10 Ways Daily Life is Different in Space
10 Ways Daily Life is Different in Space - as part of the astronomy series by GeoBeats.

Astronauts gain 2 inches in height due to spine extension.

There's no shower. Astronauts take sponge baths.

Since sunrises/sunsets are 15-20 times a day, sleeping can be hard.

Special trays hold the food so it doesn't float away.

Salt and pepper are available in liquid form, they can't be sprinkled.

Since there's no gravity, shuttle air flow directs waste to the bottom of the toilet.

Solid waste goes in sealed containers and is burned upon return to Earth.

Although possible to sleep while floating, astronauts attach themselves to a seat or a bed.

Clothes don't get dirty as frequently. Underwear is changed every several days.

Lack of gravity leads to some bone mass loss in astronauts.
