Some of the beautiful photos you took from the ISS Tim! I love your ‘Planet Earth’ book! Let’s hope that our water resources are indeed used wisely, in fact let’s hope that the powers that be all wake up to the fact that our amazing planet needs nurturing and protecting NOW! Hope all’s well with you, kind regards

#WaterforLife: water is a precious resource on the International Space Station, as on Earth. Astronauts only use 0.5 litres a day for cleaning and they even swallow their toothpaste when finished brushing their teeth! (Euwwwww... don't do this at home, they have special toothpaste in space - Ed.) ESA astronaut Tim Peake shows how. #WorldWaterDay #Space19plus UN-Water

Very impressive, though I'm pretty sure my youngest daughter uses less than 0.5 litres per day for cleaning..

I believe you can't wash your clothes on the ISS. Does it take on a certain "aroma"?
