Ask an astronaut!

"There's no shower on the ISS. Do you know how astronauts manage to keep themselves clean? There's no up or down in space. How do astronauts adapt to this environment?

Instead of searching the Internet - why not directly ask those who know best? ESA astronaut Frank De Winne is keen to personally answer your questions via ESA’s YouTube channel. " (link)
During his stay on the Station, De Winne's activities will focus on scientific research, technology and education.

Record and upload your questions to ESA’s YouTube channel as a 'Video Response' to
De Winne's video message
