to the Toilet!
we go to the toilet, we depend on the Earth's
gravity to keep our wee and poo in the toilet
bowl. In space it would float about, because that
gravitational force is absent. Space toilets have
to suck the muck down!
the early space flights, astronauts had to wear
special apparatus to collect their waste. Faecal
material was bagged and returned to Earth for analysis.
Urine was vented into space from a "Urine Collection
and Transfer Assemply" like that worn by Alan
Shepard on Apollo 14 and displayed here.
