High Life: A Look Inside the NASA Shuttles

The Space Shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to touch down tomorrow, bringing the end of an era of space travel, and with it, an era of freeze-dried ice cream, using tortillas as space frisbees and using the toilet upside-down. Sure, there's no "up" or "down" in a microgravitational environment, but there sure is when pee is involved.

To state the obvious, though, life on a space shuttle is hardly easy. You have to deal with cramped living spaces, Tang and flying food. It's like camp with zero gravity and bone loss.

We searched for images of living aboard the NASA shuttles and got some great insight insight into the daily routines of the Astronauts.
