Question: Are astronauts allowed beards?

Keywords: , ,

  1. I don’t think there is a specific rule against beards- unless they would interfere safety equipment- like the masks they need for firefighting.


  2. Hi EvilPossum123,

    A lot of astronauts in the past have come from military backgrounds and are used to strict regulations on facial hair and length.

    However, there is no reason why an astronaut on-board the International Space Station (ISS) could not grow a beard if they wanted to! 🙂
