The amazing video shows just one aspect of life in space! Traveling into space, floating around in zero gravity seems amazing and astronauts seem to be the luckiest people on the planet! But life is not easy up in space. Mundane tasks become a challenge in an environment without gravity!

A kid asks International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield how they wash hands in space. Hadfield competently explains how they use special No Rinse Body Bath pouches containing “slightly soapy” water solution which can then be squeezed out into a ball of cleaning liquid and worked into each hand and then the hands can be dried using a towel.
