NASA is gearing up to send a 23-million-dollar toilet into space.
The agency is set to launch almost eight-thousand-pounds worth of supplies from its Virginia flight facility today. That includes the toilet which is about 65-percent smaller and 40-percent lighter than the one currently on the international space station.
The john is made of titanium, the strongest metal, so we have to ask… why? The “universal waste management system” is also said to better accommodate women in the zero-gravity environment.
