Who hasn’t looked up in the sky and wondered, what’s up there? Who’s up there? Are we alone in the universe? Well we still don’t know for sure but now thanks to howmanypeopleareinspacerightnow.com we can finally learn how many astronauts are currently in space and how long they’ve been there. They key purpose of the site is to figure out who’s really out there. The simplicity of the site makes it easy for anyone to navigate. The top of the page shows the exact number of astronauts in space, listing their names, country, and number of days in space. When you click on each name you are transferred to the astronauts NASA profile page where you can learn a little bit more about the people watching over us from above. Right now there are currently six astronauts working space. We tip our hats to commander Pavel Vinogradov, and flight engineers Alexander Misurkin, Chris Cassidy, Fyodor Yurchikhin, Karen Nyberg, and Luca Parmitano.
