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.

And there's a lot more space history on the blog, only some of it tying into potty homour.
