Japan astronaut Wore Same Pants For 1 Month

Phew! The Shuttle has safely returned and Japanese astronaut wore the same pants all the time he was away.

Astronaut Koichi Wakata is returning to Earth wearing the same underpants he has worn for a month during his space station visit.

The pants are experimental and designed to be odour-free.

As crew on the shuttle Endeavour headed back to Earth, the Japanese astronaut broke the news to his colleagues about the underwear experiment.

He said: "I wore them for about a month, and my station crew members never complained for about a month, so I think the experiment went fine".
