How Do Astronauts Poop in Space?
Everybody poops, even astronauts. Figuring out how to manage bowl movements in space was an interesting problem with creative solutions.
There is a lot more to this story than just funny bags stuck to bums, and I dug deeper into the story to look at all the details NASA had to think through when building a space toilet on Vintage Space.
Another great space-based poop story is the story of floating fecal dust on the first space shuttle mission.
