Toilet’s broken… Next one’s 210 miles south!
If you’re aboard the International Space Station, the very last thing you want to see – maybe except for alien life forms seeping through the vents – is an “out of order” sign on the only toilet. Sadly, that’s pretty much the situation. They are up to their astronauts in plumbing problems.
Not to get indelicate, but crew members reportedly have been fumbling with plastic bags since their zero-gravity toilet made “a loud noise” and stopped working properly last week. Ewwwwwwww!
I’m guessing there’s more they aren’t telling us about. Like maybe an increase in “space walks,” as crew members grab a tattered copy of NASA Magazine, scurry out the hatch, and give new meaning to “moon shot.” Anyway, new parts just arrived and they’re fixing the thing tomorrow. Or sooner, if the crew gets to vote.
