NASA tests new $23 million space toilet
CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (AP) — NASA's first new space potty in decades — a $23 million titanium toilet — is getting a run at the International Space Station before eventually flying to the moon.
It was packed in a cargo ship that blasted off on Oct. 2 from Wallops Island, Virginia.
Barely 45 kilograms and just 71 centimeters tall, the new toilet is roughly half as big as the two Russian-built ones at the space station.
The old toilets cater more toward men. To better accommodate women, NASA tilted the seat on the new toilet and made it taller.
Station residents will test it out for a few months. If the test goes well, the toilet will be open for regular business.
