Guess what actually flies at us over the head and what in space isn't present.
The car of Tesla which Elon Musk has started out of borders of Earth in February, 2018 — not the only strange object in space. In 60 years of flights people have sent a set of different objects there.
Lie The small porcelain teapot flying somewhere between orbits of Earth and Mars was thought up by the English philosopher Bertrán Russell. Analogy shows that some statements can't be disproved, but it is not an occasion to recognize them as true.
Truth Repairing the solar ISS battery in November, 2008, the American astronaut Haydemari Stefanishin-Piper I have let go a bag in which there were all tools worth 100 thousand dollars. Until the bag has burned down in the atmosphere of Earth, amateur astronomers adored finding her in a sky.
Lie Modern mobile devices can't work in an outer space. Because of low temperature the plastic case will quickly burst, and the device will fail from overheating as in a vacuum heat is very badly taken away. Therefore astronauts even can't theoretically lose phone in an orbit.
Truth In 2006 and 2007 the Bigelow Aerospace company has sent two inflatable modules which have to become prototypes of future space hotel into Earth orbit. It is planned to be started after financing of the International Space Station stops. One more module is attached to the ISS — astronauts use it as a warehouse.

Lie Astronauts and astronauts change clothes not too often, but all the same it accumulates decently. Washing machines for zero gravity aren't created so the used linen burns down in the atmosphere together with the Progress ship which takes away about the ISS and other garbage at the same time.
Truth Usually astronauts, leaving in an outer space, reliably fasten all things which take with themselves to a space suit. But in December, 2006 one of buttons of fastening has broken, and the American's video camera Suni Williams repairing the solar ISS battery has departured in space.
