Astronauts always fold their arms in space - but it's not to look cool
"Your arms don't hang by your side in space like they do on Earth because there is no gravity," Kelly said in response to user Doug_Lee's question about the deal with astronauts and folded arms."It feels awkward to have them floating in front of me. It is just more comfortable to have them folded," Kelly wrote (or rather, someone at NASA wrote for him as he spoke from space).
It's a great example of the many adjustments astronauts must make when living in the near zero gravity conditions, including the way they season their food, keep track of time, cry, and use the bathroom.
Something to think about when you're getting all brash with your gravity and your normal-hanging arms on Earth.
