In Space… No One Can Hear You Fart

by Shane McGlaun

Anyone with kids knows that it can be a challenge to teach them to use the toilet. My daughter always got the sequence wrong, wipe, then flush. She finally got it down. I can only imagine how hard it would be to drop a deuce if you live on the ISS. The first challenge would be that one tremendous fart might just send you floating around the cabin.

This would also bring new meaning to the term “floaters.” I would not be happy if I walked in and there were literally turds floating around. I bet that has happened before though. The thing is, in zero gravity anything floats around. If the suction fails, you will be in there with a bag trying to catch Mr. Hankey. National Geographic has a video that explains how to do the deed in space.

That space throne looks intimidating; it would really suck to get a case of the squirts while living on the ISS. I find it more than a little funny that part of astronaut training is how to take a poo.
