Could you send in a plumber?

They are having more toilet problems on the International Space Station. Seems that the Russian made space toilet is not working. I realize that the water hunger, gravity fed toilets that work on earth would not work very well on the Space Station, but to break down twice in a short period of time is not good at all. I would really reconsider working on the space station if the main toilet is going to break every 4 to 6 months. Seems like that would be a vital function. Especially when some of the water used on the Space Station comes from recycling the waste collected in those high-tech privies.

Oh well, that massive water recycling program in use on the space station would also give me pause to send in my resume for Space Station Tech.

Where are the days when the astronauts would just play with their food in the micro-gravity situations. I miss the Jello floating in the air.

Hehe… niiiice. I’d phone ahead before I made any plans to visit the station.

I think I will keep my feet planted right here on terra firma, thank you very much. There is just too much that can go wrong in a place where you have to create your own atmosphere.

step 1 for me would be getting on an airplane… and that’s a BIG step!
