Astronauts have to rely on their spacecraft to make the air for them. This is done on the space shuttle by two tanks each of liquid oxygen and liquid nitrogen. These are automatically mixed and pressurized by the cabin pressurization system to resemble what we breathe on Earth.they also use a air mask. CaRrOtS!
