Ever heard someone say they had so much to drink that they're about to float away? If you're onboard a space ship, it might be true. But if you're thinking about taking your time and relaxing with the Sunday paper, this experience won't likely be one you want to prolong. If you've ever ridden a roller coaster, the restrictive thigh bar holding you in place won't seem too unfamiliar, though the foot restraints (for sitting) or the toe bar on top of your foot (if you're standing -- an option available to both men and women thanks to a special unisex funnel) might seem a little bit odd. And if you're wondering what happens if nature calls while astronauts are outside the spacecraft, they must depend on superabsorbent adult diapers, which are also used during take-offs and landings.
