GeekSpeak – what job would you like to have in space? Join the discussion Saturday May 19th at 12 pm SLT

Within 10 years there will be multiple space stations orbiting Earth.  This week we will talk about living and working on such stations.  Will people suffer from nausea because the station will rotate and Earth will rise every 10 minutes?  Or will they get used to it?

What will it be like to work in zero or low gravity?  How would a hairdresser manage if hair floats around?  Will special hairstyles be invented for those in space?  How about cooking and serving food in zero gravity?  Even cleaning will be difficult if all the furniture is fastened to the floor.  Will there be jobs for animal trainers who can teach pets to adapt to space?  What would be your favourite space job?

Did you know you can help crowdfund a space station right now?  You may be living on one in 10 years.  Or do you think it will all take a lot longer and maybe never happen at all?

Bring your gyroscopes and tell us what your dream job will be in space.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have ideas for new subjects.
