Over the years, living in space has forced astronauts to make a few concessions to things you would not give a second thought about when staying at a Holiday Inn.

Here are a fews things you may not have known about living in space:

Some more space trivia...

Well, you know about the diapers, right.

Anyways, another interesting note I'll pass along, just about all the gloves used by US astronauts are "hand made and sewn together" by a deciated league of sewing ladies back at Houston Johnson Space Center.

Burritos have been eaten in space.

The USSR way back when tend to jettison their garage.

Friendship 7(?), Mercury space capsule was the only non-recovered earth returned space item from manned space flights. AND! the explosive bolt that caused its sinking was found that the trigger still in its place, so the astronaut has a clean record(not me). The capsule is now recovered.

My name is on a CD placed on the Mars 2001 Lander mission. :o

I love this stuff -----Willy Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
