The Coolest Job in the Universe

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work aboard the International Space Station?

Designed to provide living and working space for a crew of up to seven, it was built with parts supplied by or astronauts from 16 different countries. These parts were transported via space shuttles and contains three main sections.

Every shuttle that arrives with fresh supplies also turns into a trash shuttle when it returns to earth. There is no way to throw away food packages, human waste, and solid waste. There are no clothes washing machines or dryers, so all clothes are disposable.

Makes you appreciate the comforts of home, doesn't it?
