Chris Hadfield: How to Brush Your Teeth In Space

Tooth Brush in SpaceChris Hadfield is back with another transmission from low Earth orbit. This time he’s demonstrating one of the most common daily tasks: brushing your teeth.

Hadfield has to muster a ball of water from a package to soak his brush, and worst of all, he has to swallow the toothpaste.
