Hmmm They could save power inside the space ship though by having a vacuum cleaner which was just a hose connected to a hole in the hull! That would be a real vacuum cleaner!!! Mwahaha! Anyone ever read the Heinlein story about the guy who saved the day by sealing a hole in a lunar tunnel with his butt cheek?
Basically, a vacuum cleaner works by using a propeller to move air in through a hose, through a dust bag, and out the back of the vacuum cleaner. In space the propeller would spin, but that's all that would happen because there's no air to move.
