It’s not such a pleasant experience.
Space travel a long time called the next human frontier, but it is rarely advertised as a hideous nightmare. Simply put, space is not glamorous as it seems. Only natural needs creates many problems. Ready to rethink your concept of traveling through space? Here are 12 gross things about space travel that you never thought, reports the Chronicle.info with reference for a Fresher.
1. You might assume that a space station or space ship to be immaculately clean, but the opposite. There is about as dirty as in your home when it has not been cleaned for several weeks. Scientists have discovered about 4,000 different types of bacteria and germs living in space with the astronauts.
2. Taking into account the forces necessary to launch astronauts into space, not to mention the lack of gravity in space, most astronauts suffer from space sickness, also called the syndrome of spatial adaptation. Along with the violation of their mental abilities, they also suffer from gastrointestinal problems, nausea and vomiting.
3. As you can see, weightlessness causes many terrible problems in space. In space the blood doesn’t work as with gravity. Instead of trying to pull blood to the feet, it can pour to the brain. About four days astronauts face look swollen from all the extra blood flows into their skull. In the end, their bodies adapt to the environment.
4. Have you ever wondered what is the smell? When the astronauts return from spacewalks and take off their helmets inside their spaceship, they are greeted by a strange smell. In other words, space stinks.
5. Given the continuous human presence on the space station, there are also unpleasant odors. And to curb any unpleasant odors, NASA has established many different deodorizing machines. However, the famous astronaut Scott Kelly said that the ISS smells like prison.
6. You probably are wondering what clothes maximum absorption. Well, we’ll just tell you that this is an adult diaper, and all the astronauts wear them. During operations in outer space the astronauts can’t just get up and leave, so they wear a diaper when they have to urinate.
7. In space not much water. To curb this problem, the astronauts have to drink recycled water from my own urine. The machine that makes it for them, costs about $ 250 million. We assume that they often check the car to make sure it works correctly.
8. When your body digests food, it naturally forms a gas. After some time, the gas finds a way out, but in space, it just sits in you for a long time. If you try to cause a burp, it may cause vomiting.
9. Weightlessness makes astronauts to be swollen in the face, but also causes constipation. That’s why they eat applesauce from a tube.
10. Everyone wants to know how you go to the bathroom in space. Photo of space room. Astronauts need to go through “positional training” to make sure that their feces falls right into the hole.
11. No one wants to deal with clogged toilet, even on Earth, but that’s exactly what happened on the flight “of the Space ship Columbia in 1981. The feces migrated from the ventilation system and entered the main cabin.
12. The astronauts are training about two hours a day to maintain their muscle mass. This will create a lot of sweat. In weightlessness, the sweat remains on the body, he just clings to it in the form of tiny balls. The body should be wiped with a towel.
