I get paid to be an astronaut

There's a compelling reason scientists think we've never found aliens and it suggests humans are already going extinct - "civilizations might emerge and develop and burn themselves up simply too fast to ever find one another.

Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti: Our solid waste container gets changed out when it’s full, typically every 11/12 days. To easily keep track of how long it lasts, we write the day on it. On the wall of the toilet compartment you can see urine tubes and a urine collection bag: we draw urine from the bag into the tubes and then put the tubes in the freezer. When one of us has a 24-hour urine collection, the “equipment” Is typically deployed like that in the toilet cabin.

Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti: TripleLux B is an ESA investigation into the effects of microgravity on immune cells, which takes place in the Biolab facility in Columbus. Biolab has required some unplanned maintenance work (a smoke detector quite deep in the belly of the rack had to be replaced) but luckily it was back in shape before the cell cultures expired.

Forty-two is the answer, but what is the question? Scientists from the University of Zurich wanted to probe how immune cells adapt to weightlessness so they sent an experiment to the International Space Station with ESA.

Ocular research in space can be a hair raising experience. "I must confess that I dread these events a little bit: getting good scans is not always easy and it’s not uncommon to have to repeat them multiple times to get a satisfactory result. It can be somewhat frustrating for the operator and tiring for the subject, who has to keep his/her eyes open and still for a long time." - Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti
