Why am I not surprised it's a Fox News link?

Because, after all, that's all a female astronaut is good for. Showing us how to do our hair in space.

Here is what I always wondered.. There have been numerous videos of astronauts using water in various ways and places on the ISS.. In each video varied sized droplets of water "escape" and float away somewhere..

What happens to those droplets? I mean..  The entire interior of the ISS can't be water proof right? I always wondered how a rogue water drop never accidentally floated its way into the motheboard of a PC or other crucial electronics device inside the ISS.

Can't find the citation, but heard that the HVAC system is designed to pick up the moisture from the air and then recycle it into drinking water. In that case, the answer to your mystery water droplet would be: evaporated.

Well I get that with moisture.. But.. Full blown drops and balls of water? Where do they go? No way the AC system is so hardcore it can suck entire balls and drops of water from across a "pod" guaranteeing it doesn't run into something crucial.

I should write NASA because everytime I see these videos and water floats away I'm all like "CATCH THE WATER BEFORE IT SHORTS OUT SOMETHING!!!.......AND YOU LET IT GET AWAY!!!"

Seems impractical to keep long hair in microgravity, though.  Larry Niven writes about asteroid belt miners who spend loads of time in zero gee in suits and ships as shaving the head bald or near-bald, with a little crest, like a Mohawk, I guess.

I would have figured they used a closed, cabinet-like space for hygiene routines so as to contain everything and make it easier to capture it with a little hose. That's what Skylab used.

Regarding stray water drops on the station, you can see by the way her hair stands up there is a very strong draft established to some unseen fan intake. That fan intake has  screens to trap the water as well as hair and dust, etc.  When the astronauts lose something tiny in the station, they just have to wait  and they wil find it stuck to the filter because of the airflow patterns.  Secondly, the hardware on the station is designed with a lot of safety features in it, part of why it's expensive. It is radiation-hardened, thermal and shock- proof,  vacuum- proof, fire-resistant, waterproofed where that is important, and so on.

I didn't either at first, and I will concede the point that they may have chosen her because she had long hair, and therefor a better demonstration, and since women tend to have longer hair. . .

But yeah. Really? You couldn't have one of the guys do this one? What's next? She shows us how to make a sammich?

There was one female astronaut, it might have been Stott or Nowak, who was popular for posting her sandwich and food recipes on her mission blog. Can't remember if she made a video.

I used to want to be an astronaut, but after seeing her wash her hair, it seems like it'd be a camping trip (which I hate). You know what I'm talking about, where no matter what kind of hygiene you practice on the camping trip you always will feel dirty. And when she mentioned the 'No-Rinse' shampoo, I know from hospital stays that that stuff makes you clean... but it doesn't make you feel clean until you actually get under running water.

When she said her hair started to feel 'squeaky clean' a little bit, it really made me wonder what the interior of the space station really smells like. I bet there's a lot of 'tolerance' given limited hygiene effectiveness compared to earth.

And it makes me just a little bit nauseous.

So... is she not allowed to do anything even slightly domestic because she's a woman?  I think the fact she qualified as an astronautis proof enough that she is a capable person.

Her hair is probably longer than the male astronauts which I imagine makes for a better demonstration. Gasp. Sexism.

Perhaps, and just perhaps, they designed things unlike the deck of the Starship Enterprise, where the slightest malfunction could blow everything up. I mean, I've had my iPod submerged before, temporarily, and it has worked fine for the last 5 years.

Good job, you.

Peki:

Get over yourself.  Her gender matters nothing to me, the very fact she's managed to get herself into space has earned my respect.  I don't particularly care how to wash long hair in space, but it is amusing to see them have to clown around with a different set of rules as relating to gravity.  This is why most people watch it.

But not you.  You are the stalwart crusader for feminism who refuses to see a female as human.  She has to be a machine, apparently.  For you.

(1) Clearly one of those astronauts has a hectic social schedule!

(2) Makes you wonder where all the hair goes. I mean, I shed so much it's a wonder I have any hair left on me, and every week I vacuum my apartment and dig the hairballs out of the vacuum-cleaner where it's conveniently locked up all of the other crud and dust-bunnies.

Stott makes delicious cookies.

As for the loose water:
The a/c inlet has a slurper in it which is designed to accumulate water and recycle it back into the station water supply. The space suit system does the same thing with sweat.

So basically they are drinking her bathwater. Giggity. Until you remember their bathwater is mixed in.
