    Only .5 lb of poop/day? I thought it would be more. I read an article a couple weeks ago about the pee recycling in the space station. Both Russia and US recycle collected sweat but by different methods and only the US recycles pee and even takes some from the Russians.

    Wonder how it's collected in zero gravity, especially diarrhea. What a mess that could make!

    Having to wade through poop is the only thing that is keeping aliens from invading earth.

    Take a seat facing the door.
    The moisture must be extracted first, somehow.

    Oh great, Just what they need up there; dried turds flying around at 25,000 mph. Hate to get hit with one of those.

    I am fairly confident that I could produce a load that the Russians would think was an incoming ICBM MIRV warhead that could spark WWIII ;)

    Apparently it does as she suggested she needed to turn on the suction to keep the odor down. I'll bet I could get everyone in U.S. side of the space station to go to the Russian side for an hour. :faint:

    I think in the old days it involved holding a plastic bag to capture the waste. NASA did not talk about it much back then. :ack:
