Space Toilet Broken Answered

Out in space, no one can hear you scream when the one toilet breaks. That's the status on the International Space Station right now. Solid waste is being taken care of just fine, but liquid waste currently is having problems that is temporarily being served by a "bypass" solution while the astronauts wait for new parts to arrive this weekend along with a shuttle.

This all reminds me of the scene from Apollo 13 when the engineers need to fix the filter with available parts. Maybe someday this too will get the Hollywood treatment.

I remember hearing about this on CNN. When they mentioned that they had to fix the toilet; I chuckled.

They cant really clog the toilet on freeze-dried food can they?
