Space station toilet not working-Why yes, this job will be time and a half

May 29, 2008


The international space station has one toilet. That one toilet isn’t functioning properly now. Fortunately for the astronauts aboard the station, the solid waste part of the toilet is still working. NASA is going to try and send the replacement part to fix the toilet on an upcoming shuttle launch…if they can fit it on the shuttle.

Check out a NASA official explaining how the space toilet works. I wouldn’t recommend this immediately before eating.
