Joys of sleeping and peeing in space revealed!

London, Nov. 14 : Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who recently spent 6 months on the International Space Station (ISS), has revealed more unusual aspects of life in space.

In his new book, 'An Astronaut's Guide To Life On Earth,' the 54-year-old has shared more peculiar details from his days as an astronaut.

He said that the clothes don't cling to your body, and instead, float around you, so the laundry days are less.

Hadfield said that a pair of socks lasts a week, a shirt is good enough for two weeks, and shorts and long pants can be worn for a month.

He said that sleeping is a real pleasure in space because of the lack of gravity, the Daily Star reported.
Hadfield said that while sleeping an astronaut feels as if they're resting on a cloud, perfectly supported, because of which there's no tossing and turning to find a more comfortable position.

He said that an astronaut could even pee upside down in the space.
