HOW TO PUKE In Space

Seeing that we are heading toward an era when regular folks will be able to travel into space soon, I think that it’s time that we start doing a little prep work to get ourselves ready.

And no, I’m not talking about getting into shape or learning about science (although, those are probably worth doing as well). I’m talking about researching what we do when various orifices begin leaking uncontrollably and there is no gravity.

While I have no problem shitting into a bag or being fit with a catheter so I can pee through a tube, I do have a bit of an issue with puking as my stomach seems to lurch for no reason (I once barfed while watching a commercial for Applebee’s fried green beans. Apparently I found it disgusting enough to warrant upchucking all over the couch).

And to be quite honest, of all the things to worry about when going up into space, how to puke in it seems to top my list.

But Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield (commander of the International Space Station) has got me covered as he takes me step-by-step through the process of space vomiting. 

Canadians…always helpful.

Watch and take notes people.
