Thanks to pop-culture representation of space, including movies, TV shows, and comics, most people now have a somewhat wrong idea about what happens outside Earth’s atmosphere. 

This is why WIRED magazine decided to bring a real-life astronaut Chris Hadfield and asked him to debunk (or confirm) the most common space myths.

Hadfield spilled the beans on several interesting topics, and revealed whether astronauts need to work out all the time, does the space smell like a burnt steak and is NASA close to developing warp speed.
