I told em that freeze dried chilli was a bad idea.
Would this be the same toliet with a seat that cost $1200 and is now the reason I have to take Aquisition training?
Pretty funny if you don't have to actually deal with it. Hope they get it fixed.
Looks to me like we have a bunch of spoiled, pansy astronauts. If bags with sticky openings were good enough for Apollo, they should be good enough for them.Quote:
these high-tech commodes must use fan-driven air flow instead of gravity to transport human waste away from a crew memberís body and into a sanitary receptacle. Early spaceflights didnít even have this method, but relied on bags with sticky openings ó and an emergency supply of such bags is indeed aboard the space station.
So long as there is no exchanging of bodily fluids going on up there...
EDIT I suppose in the context of this conversation, that quote is misleading...
Just so they don't end up dumping it outside the space station. It would really stink if a multi-billion dollar satellite was brought down because of a collision with a bag of orbiting high-speed poo... (any puns intended)
Space age technology and somebody plugs the crapper and forgot the plunger. That old theory about what happens when **** hits the fan is now dubunked. The fan just stops........:biggrin:
So the toilets up there have gone to pot - nice...
