  • You never have to do laundry – astronauts throw their clothes away after they are used.
  • You get to become immersed in a range of different cultures – currently, there are 3 Russians, 2 Americans and a Japanese astronaut aboard the space station.
  • All of your water is recycled…yes…that means urine too – Kelly says most of it comes from their urine and condensation and some of it comes from the ground. He says they also have a urine processor
  • You get to see the Earth like never before – Kelly has shared many stunning images of the earth taken from 250 miles up to his half a million followers on Twitter.

In October this year, Kelly broke the record for the most time spent in space by an American astronaut.
