              he is wrong , this is not how space is , they are in a giant station that is in constant freefall around earth , that is what is creating their "space" problems , real open space is vastly different

                              Can save a lot of water if they just shaved their heads every few days. Shampooing in space seems like a quaint waste. If we have water scarcity on earth, we'll have to get by like this down here too.

                                                              Anyway, back to the real world/Space. So after the 'Easy Rider' and mirror stage, there's a 'procedure' that involves toilet roll... is this an easy-wipe situation, and do those join the rest of the er, stuff!?! ...which also has me curious about the effects zero gravity has on the digestive system and it's further processes. As anyone who's spent any time at a higher altitude than they're used to may be aware of how this can upset the system. Surely this must be a problem, if not for all, at least for some?!!?
