Astronauts on the space station getting their own bedrooms

isscabin.jpgSure, getting to live in space has to be pretty cool. I mean, not too many people get the chance to experience it, so those who do have got to consider themselves lucky. But it's not without its downsides. For example: privacy. There's none. You're stuck up in a tin can with a bunch of people, and you have about zero personal space. But that's about to change, at least a little bit.

That's because the space shuttle Endeavor is delivering a bunch of private bedrooms to the ISS, each about the size of a closet, that allow for some privacy. The bedrooms feature laptop stands, hooks for strapping in a sleeping bag, and Velcro for sticking up pictures of family and solid ground. It should make living in space that much easier.
