Living in Space
In space the astronaut have to share everything in space but their beds. A single room in space could be, a kitchen, bedroom,bathroom,living room,dining room. So if they have to eat dinner in a room then they might have to sit their and read a book or work in it. There is also no TV in space but they can talk the people on earth because they want to see how far they are In space.
In Space they eat, regular food that they would eat on Earth. Most people think that they have to eat food like powder in bag but that is not it at all. They get to eat steak and shrimp in space so they feel more at home in space that they do on Earth. A astronaut must make food for many different people or everyone on the shuttle or the ship. The food can not be very hot or very cold in space. Also their food as do them float. So if the are having shrimp and they are eating It might float around the cabin.
Sleeping in space in very difficult they must strap themselves down so that they do not float around the cabin because there is no gravity in space. When they are strapped down their arms float and they kind of look like they are upside down but they are not that is just what it is like in space with no gravity. If they did not get strapped down they would float they might brake something or even hurt themselves which would not be a very good thing to do while your many miles from home and you brake a bone.
When you are in space and you have to take a shower because hygiene is very important. You must as you would on earth take a shower! When you do this you have to take a small hose and a vacuum sort of thing and spay some water on yourself and them put some soap on them vacuum it all away. So that it does not go all over the space shuttle. The water could get onto the cabin and brake something. Also if you where having to wash your hands you would have to do the same thing as to taking a shower you would have to spray some water on your hands then take a vacuum and take the water away.
In space you have a lot of fun. But it is also work you have to exercise and stay in shape so that you can still fit into you space suit that is made just for you. Also you have to collect samples of rocks so that you may bring them back to earth and be sold for a lot of money for school so learn about and to teach students. You might be in space for a while a year or just a couple days what ever time the people on earth think that you need to be up there. Also a week before you cannot be with anyone who have to stay by yourself so that you do not get any germs that could get anyone or yourself while you are in space.
