In the zero gravity space station, can see a simulation of super hair

That would be an interesting superpower to be able to contract hair muscles to make your hair stand up like animals or birds or a frill necked lizard en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chlamydosaurus#/me...ydosaurus_kingii.jpg

My Number One pet peeve in "HARD" science fiction movies like Gravity and Interstellar is the insistence from Hollywood that female astronauts have short hair.
Do a Google search of American female astronauts.
They all have shoulder length hair or longer.
I think it is a statement of pride.

Hollywood likes short hair so they don't have to worry the SFX the micro gravity effect on longer hair.

My understanding is that hair is really, really compute intensive to generate long hair via CGI given how much detail is in it. So I understand while they avoid it, but in reality, they can take some shortcuts to do long hair. The astronauts hair in this video didn't look like 100,000 independent strands. It kind of clumped together and could possibly be approximized. But it depends on the kind of hair, I guess.

Overall, this was a really interesting video. I had no idea there were that many places in the ISS, or that the Russians had their end and other folks had the other end. Kind of.

First thing I thought of was the 2010 jupiter mission movie (sequel to 2001) where, thanks to their nations behavior back on Earth, the Russians and Americans isolated themselves in their own ends of the ship.

One cosmonaut has REALLY short hair


The other wears hers tight and curly

Short hair was probably the easiest solution.

If there were truly different genetic solutions, maybe some of the superhumans could have had "space hair" in normal gravity if they had between 10x or 1000x human strength. Then they could try to stay "undercover" with highly reinforced head coverings, or gold infused hair products.

Some super drain cleaners might be needed for super hair balls in the plumbing unless the super stiff hairs stayed too inflexible to go in the drain.

super hair could be useful for a invulnerable string trimmer. The nonstick body oils could be duplicated and used for nonstick cookware or low maintenance paint.

I like the way you think, Slim. Taking things to the next level, which is always fun. The implications of invulnerability are endless. Some good. Some not so.

If hair stiffness was proportional to superstrength, they could charge up and their hair would stand up like in these van de graaf demos

Well, with a new Inhumans TV show coming, we should have lots of chances to see how they handle Medusa's locks.

In 1965 Irwin Allen was able to do this.
