Twitter users ask astronauts – How do you sneeze in a space suit? Answer: Aim low because it’s going to mess up your view

Veteran spacewalker David Wolf had some advice on Tuesday for those wondering how to sneeze in a spacesuit.

"Aim low, off the windscreen, because it's going to mess up your view and there's no way to clear it," said Wolf, who admitted being in just that predicament during Monday's spacewalk outside the International Space Station.

Wolf and his shuttle Endeavour crewmates took a break from their construction work at the space station to answer questions sent in by followers of commander Mark Polansky's Twitter feed, a web-based short messaging service.
