Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield appeared on Conan last night, and if you missed it here’s a clip in which Conan O’Brien asks Chris to answer one of his most nagging questions about life in orbit: “Do you guys do laundry in space? How do you take care of that issue?”

Like Conan, you might be surprised at his response! (Seen any “shooting stars” recently?)

See this and more videos from Conan on the TeamCoco YouTube page.

    Wasn’t this a joke?

    No, that’s actually how they dispose of trash from the ISS. 🙂

      A good deal of the junk, in recent times at least, has been loaded into ESA’s ATVs and then incinerated as the ATV burns up on re-entry
      through Earth’s atmosphere.

      I thought about referencing Albert Einstein, but I’m guessing that me stating he was recently set ablaze in the upper atmosphere, stuffed full of space junk might sound a little crazy 😉

    The video is of course not available in my country… 🙁

    That was funny! But Chris Hadfield is so cool to begin with!
