If this astronaut gig doesn't work out for Mike Massimino, he can always find a job as a TV comedian. Astro_Mike made a name (and a Twitter nickname) for himself during last year's Hubble servicing mission as Atlantis' onboard jokester, and he recently enlisted members of Atlantis' current crew to make a video explaining one of the great mysteries of spaceflight: How do you go to the bathroom?

That was really very interesting. It does not look simple though, and I feel sorry for anyone in space, that has to get to the bathroom in a hurry.
