Let's tackle the most important question first – do astronauts have space jammies? The answer is YES!

Astronauts on board the International Space Station are provided with a set of pyjamas. According to Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, the pymajas are Russian-made.

Instead of a bed and pillows, astronauts on the ISS only have a sleeping bag inside a compact sleep capsule.

Sleeping upside-down or sideways doesn't make a difference – it's all the same to an astronaut in Zero-G.
