Space Poop Challenge
In space, no one can hear you flush. This is because in space, there are no toilets. While you may go about your life mostly unaffected by this, it is more of a challenge for our brave astronauts in their space suits.
After all: when you gotta go, you gotta go. And sometimes you gotta go in a total vacuum.
NASA are currently in the judging phase of a competition to source a system that routes and collects human waste away from the body, hands-free, for fully suited astronauts.
