Missouri Astronaut On Life In Space
Life in space is all about the details, but as Bob Behnken can attest, when the hatch opens for a spacewalk, "All that meticulousness can go a little bit out the window because of the excitement of looking down at our earth."
Segment beginning at 1:00: Missouri native Bob Behnken pulls back the curtain on life in space.
Behnken has left his mark on America's space program from the space shuttles to SpaceX. There are the exciting moments like working on the outside of the International Space Station but then "most people don't understand just how inconvenient a lot of the little things of life are that you're so used to" like eating and dirty laundry in zero gravity.
