Surprisingly, even the humble plastic carrier bag has done its bit to help with the development of space programmes and aid astronauts on their adventures into the unknown.
In fact, they are probably the most sophisticated carrier bags on the planet (and maybe even the universe!).
The bags have a paper liner attached to a plastic bag. You pop the liner around your face and then use the liner to wipe your face before tucking that (along with the contents of your stomach) into the plastic part. And it even has a nice zip lock seal at the top to ensure it doesn’t escape during the rest of your space mission!
