Transcript of Living in Space


Astronauts that are going up into space have to make sure to have plenty of food and the gears to cook and eat it with. The food that the astronauts have would have to be stored properly and durable thing to avoid spoilage. Some of the food they have would be eaten in their normal forms like brownies and fruit. Some of the food is required to have water like spaghetti and macaroni.

There are some pointers of storing your food and they are:

There is an oven is provided in the space shuttle and the space station to heat foods
There are no refrigerators in space
Space food must be stored and prepared properly to avoid spoilage
Astronauts have 3 meals a day-breakfast, lunch and dinner
The "nutritions ensure the food they eat" and "provides them with a balanced supply of vitamins and minerals
Many types of foods astronauts can eat are fruits, nuts, peanut butter, chicken, beef, seafood, candy, brownies, etc...
Drinks they have are ranged from coffee, tea, orange juice, fruit punches and lemonade
Space food comes in packages that must be disposed
Astronauts have to throw their packages away in a trash compactor inside the space shuttle when they are finished eating
Some of the packages "actually prevent food from flying away"
The packages are "designed to be flexible, easier to use, as well as maximize space when stowing or disposing food containers

Adaptations to sleep in Space
Astronauts have to sleep in any result of the Rocket they're in
They have to strap themselves to a wall, seat, or a bunk
Space Shuttle, and space station crew members often sleep in sleeping bags
Only 4 bunk beds so they have to share with people
But others have to strap themselves to a heavy object to keep themselves from floating around
On the Space station there are 2 small crew cabins
inside both cabins is a sleeping bag and a large window to look out into space
Work in space
The station crew spends their day working on science experiments that require input as well as monitoring those that re controlled from to controlled
Working on the space station also means ensuring the maintenance and health of orbiting platforms
crew members are constantly checking support systems, and cleaning filters, plus updating computer equipment
Similarity mission control constantly monitors in the space station and sends messages each day through voice mail with new instruction or pans to assist the crew embers in their daily routine
How do astronauts train to live in a Zero gravity environment
There are no wash basins or showers, but the shuttles do have toilets
Toilets look similar to a western style toilet that we use on earth
There is a slight difference between the 2 toilets

"The astronauts fasten their bodies to the toilet, so that, they won't float away. They then use a vacuum-cleaner-like machine o suck up the waste. The wastes are then vacuum-dried."

"A curtain, not a door, partitions the toilet space so, you may imagine the sounds from inside the toilet space could be heard outside.

When astronauts are in the space shuttle they have a toilet that they do their business on and clean too. But "between the astronauts duties, the astronauts have to clean up their meal area, change the air purification system's filter, collect the garbage, and also clean the walls an floors." That's a lot of work that they have in space.

The Cycle erogeometer :

what is a Erogemeter?
Is a device that's used to measure Muscle power

is similar to stationary bicycle. The. The astronaut use clip pedals and has the option of a back support and hand holds to secure them to the machine.

The Treadmill:
Uses a bungee and harness system to secure the astronaut to a treadmill. The bungees attached to either side of the treadmill.
The percission Air-Bearing floor:

Making connections
The precision Air - Bearing floor is a large smooth metal floor
One part of an astronauts job may include moving large objects
It allows astronauts to move huge objects if they were in space
The objects they would lift would have air force so it's really easy to move them To practice activities, or space walks, astronauts go underwater.
The astronauts use the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory

What is a Neutral buoyancy labatory?

It is a huge swimming pool
a huge pool that is 62 meters in length, 31 meters in width and 12 meters in depth. The pool holds 22.7 million liters of water
Astronauts float in the water while they practice on full-sized models of space vehicles. They may spend up to seven hours at a time under water.
Some of the connections that Jacqueline once had a hard time sleeping in space, as she once had to share a room with her sister.

Our class went to the aviation museum to learn more about the 4 forces of flight and to see the aircraft too. Once before our field trip there, I went with my mother.
