Brushing your teeth in space. Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is currently aboard the International Space Station and just loves to teach and entertain us by showing us what it’s like to live day to day in a weightless environment. I believe I’ve posted a video of his before on washing your hands and he’s back at it with another every day task you may have never thought about doing in such an environment.

These videos are simple but very fascinating to me. It’s an environment with completely different physical properties from what we’re used to and that can pose challenges to do doing things we take for granted. Of course after a while I’m sure these guys don’t think twice about having a bubble of water in front of your face you can drink because they’re up there for a much more important purpose, to expand humanity’s knowledge about space.
