I’m not sure why you’d ever feel the need to cry in space because as an astronaut, you’re one of the biggest badasses that has ever lived. But I suppose you could stub your toe on a moon rock or your astronaut girlfriend/co-pilot could break up with you, and the situation might arise.
Here’s astronaut Chris Hadfield is showing us all what crying in space actually looks like, and it’s freaking terrifying. It looks like a water blob monster is trying to craw its way into his eye. Then, once he’s possessed he’ll hunt down and infect the rest of the crew before steering his ship into the sun. Alright I’ve watched too many movies.
