This article is about NASA trying to figure out how they can have people in spacesuits for several days without it filling up with human waste (yuck), which was supposedly figured out in the 1969 with the Apollo missions.

In the middle of the article they mention yet again how they are trying to figure out the technology to send people to the moon or beyond: "As humans push beyond low Earth orbit, travel to the moon and Mars, we will have many problems to solve".
Wait a second, I thought we already went to the moon?!

Here's the video , the solution is in case of emergency like depressurization where astronauts would be confined to their spacesuits untill they could return to Earth.

"NASA has not sent astronauts beyond low Earth orbit since the Apollo program in 1972"

We did.

So people never heard about that astronaut that drove across country to try to kill her lovers wife ?

Wearing a 'space diaper'?

LOL!

Hmmm.
I never really pondered the issues involved with pooping in zero gravity.
I am now... damn it.

Everybody likes to eat sausage but they don't want to know how it's made. Lol

Context is everything.The astronaut spoke about emergencies, and lead with this:




NASA has not sent astronauts beyond low earth orbit since the Apollo program in 1972. The space shuttle and the space station operates in low earth orbit about 250 miles above the earth. In case of an emergency the crew can return to Earth.


He is simply talking about the issues that Apollo did not deal with, which arises when we travel beyond low earth orbit.

It is as simple as that.

I imagine that explosive diarrhea caused by a virus could really wreck a trip to Mars...

They go number 1 and 2 using a vacuum system. When not in suits.

No I don't, and do you really think a NASA press release will be very different from one news source to another??

This obsession with the media is juvenile and a waste of time.

Then you should take time to read what is said, instead of stopping at what you want to read.


in a regularly pressured spacecraft, the answer is easy -- just go to the bathroom. And for those hours-long spacewalks, NASA equips astronauts with special adult diapers to mop up any leaks.


It's clearly talking about an abnormal situation.

I thought the astronauts had what was called a 'low residue diet' meaning they did not defecate often ?
