If those astronauts were running out of new places to crap on the space station they simply haven't gotten creative enough.

I can't imagine what that cost.  The old one was something north of $20M

The cost won't get you, but the delivery and installation charges will. No Amazon Prime on the ISS.

I assume they vent the holding tank out into space...must be quite the process. Do they let it fill up for a while or do they go load by load? Is the blast enough to be measurable in the orbit? I bet the process of blowing shiat has a suitably NASA sounding name.

They're literally shiatting on us.

Anyway, if I designed the space station this is where the toilet would be.

And don't forget your giant roll of toilet paper to go with it.

CSB: "I will now poop where no one has shiat before" is the phrase I use whenever I have the opportunity to inaugurate a toilet.

We recently convinced management to overhaul our satellite office bathroom after many years of disintegrating floor vinyl and leaning toilet (floorboards were rotting from the leak) with its tendency to clog when you put anything solid in it, and only flushing when you held the handle for 3.5 seconds. Closing the lid made the lights blink. You took your ass in your hands every time you sat down.

I was there when the work was finished, made my declaration, sat upon the clean and horizontal seat, had my moment of zen, and it promptly clogged.

I have never wept so hard whilst plunging.
/CSB

Someone on that station will be the first person in orbit to ask for the $10M plunger.

Way back when Stephen Colbert was still playing Stephen Colbert the character, NASA held a contest to name a new module for the ISS, and of course Colber had his fans stuff the ballot box and name it after himself.  NASA balked at this, and instead named an exercise treadmill after him.  Thing is, the ISS also got a toilet around that time, and they missed the opportunity to name that after Stephen Colbert instead.  He would have been making "Boldy Go" jokes for at least a month.

That's why astronauts tend to be pretty cool and calm.  Run into a jackass?  "You're breathing my torched poop.  LOL."

Well, the company that makes this thing has a Bullritos right across the street so they have certainly been testing it well.

Um, well, what we are talking about in privy terms is the latest in front wall fresh air orifices combined with a wide capacity gutter installation below.
