Cutting your fingernails in space

If you had the chance to ask an astronaut one question about space travel, what would it be?

Some may ask what it’s like to be weightless, while others may inquire about the bathroom facilities available on a shuttle or space station.

But what about grooming? Hey, an astronaut has to look good for a NASA briefing or publicity photo! Thankfully, Chris Hadfield is here to help.

Hadfield is the Canadian astronaut who made headlines by posting a series of photos taken from the International Space Station, which he’ll take command of in March, on Twitter. Now he’s back to teach us the art of cutting one’s fingernails while living in space. Click on the above video to find out more!
