You become taller in Space?  Of course in space there isn’t any gravity to push you down and it’s possible to find yourself up to 5cm taller!


In space the skin on your feet falls off!   At the risk of giving Trev & Simon ideas for a future episode, that is indeed true!  Our feet are designed to be walked upon and of course, floating around in space, they see no friction so the skin starts to soften and loosen! Let’s be honest, they also probably don’t have a rigorous hygiene routine either so the skin flakes will accumulate … socks come with a ‘remove carefully warning’.    Never a good chiropodist nearby when you need one!
