What Happens To Dirty Laundry From Space?

Chris Hatfield, the coolest astronaut ever, was recently on the Conan O’Brien show and Conan had a vexing question that Chris was able to answer.  What do they do with all of their dirty laundry?  Chris’ answer is awesome.

It’s too bad Chris has flown his last space mission.  At the same time, it’s good to see NASA using him to promote space even in his retirement.  Chris was on NPR’s Fresh Air show this weekend and he is an incredibly effective communicator.  He spoke about the Columbia disaster and its effect on space exploration and about how he spent years learning Russian just so he could someday pilot a Russian space ship.  He is a fascinating man that comes from a fascinating profession.  You don’t get the two together very often.  And, just because I can, here is Chris Hatfield singing ‘Space Oddity’ from the ISS.

    He does a damn good Bowie imitation. Wonder how he justified the pound or so of weight to take that guitar up to the ISS? The View of the ISS flying over the nighttime Earth was spectacular. He is now my new Favorite astronaut ever.
