ISS is only like twice the size of a 747 plane? WTF..thought it was wayyyyyy bigger. So building those mother ships for fleets in Sci Fi movies will never happen for another 1000 years.

Given how expensive food is to get up there, do these space programs prioritize astronauts with more petite builds, maybe even people with dwarfism, that would have lower caloric intakes? Seems like a logical next step, as I'm assuming their duties don't actually require a lot of brute strength.

I wonder if the astronauts feel rather connected to the world, with having so much interaction with family, getting pop culture movies and streaming. Yeah, still a very science minded, intensive job, but I feel like a soldier in Afghanistan would feel less connected to home and the outside world... Crazy

It's incredible to me to think how there was no concept of international cooperation for space endeavors when Gene Roddenberry wrote *Star Trek* .. yet, here we are.

how do astronauts shit? Since there isn't gravity, will the poop float back up and hit the butt? Or do they shit in a can and seal it right after?

You didn't mention the other (most important) reason astronauts really need to eat properly: if they under-eat, the bodymass becomes top-heavy. So they have a calorie-rich diet with regular exercise to maintain body mass.

Posted this one to my FB page, my brother worked at the SSPF (Space Station Processing Facility) , a Boeing operation, this is where final assembly before launch was done, I saw Node 1 during a special tour when it was in the high bay prior to launch prep. My brother worked upstairs in logistics where they schedule when stuff enters, a bag of bolts doesn't enter until scheduled to. Also saw shuttle Discovery, she was in a hanger, wheels off, engines out and being processed for a future mission then, huge machine, the belly hatches for fuel were open, you could fit a bowling ball in em, 1000s of gals per sec of fuel go thru those during launch.

NASA food is made in Texas with supermarket ingredients. Those Astronauts are eating H.E.B food. That's why H.E.B is better than Walmart.
