As NASA prepares for an eventual return to the Moon, researchers are hard at work trying to solve a major problem for astronauts - using the toilet on the lunar surface.

It shouldn't be a problem on the surface as there is 1/6 earth gravity. It's the zero g flight over that's the problem.
Some may view my above politically incorrect opinions as 'harsh' and may even be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.

Specifically, they want a toilet/process that works in both scenarios - Zero G and 1/6G.

Have to start somewhere. At least there's a photocopier on the moon. Toilets will come later.

You can win $35000 if you design the toilet!

Why am I hearing chants of "compost, compost, compost!" right out of WaterWorld?
Stay tuned for another episode of "Terrified of Trump's Base."
