Sleeping Aid

According to my research there is little airflow in the space station, and as a result when astronauts sleep Carbon Dioxide pools above their mouths. This results in oxygen deprivation; so I designed the Sleeping Aid which circulates air above the mouth. The astronauts position the Sleeping Aid above their mouths by threading through the holes on the sides of the Sleeping Aid and then breath through the hole on the bottom of the device. Breathing through this hole spins a fan which in turn spins a gear which turns another fan that is perpendicular to the astronaut's face. This perpendicular fan is what creates the air flow above the mouths of the astronauts and provides for a breath of fresh oxygen after every exhale.
