Japanese astronaut to finally put on clean underwear

By  

Koichi Wakata has been on the International Space Station since March, and for the last month of his stay has been wearing the same pair of underpants. He was testing a new fabric called J-Wear, designed specifically for long space missions. Wakata said that "I haven't talked about this underwear to my crew members," but noted that "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."
