Have you ever wondered what it would be like to brush your teeth in space?
We’ve previously shared an article about why astronauts need good teeth.

But this task isn’t as simple as it is here on Earth, given the weightless condition in space.
“In space, you’d all swallow your toothpaste,” the astronaut says. Check out this video to see why.
