Everyone needs to go to the toilet to wake up in the morning. But what if you can’t go to the toilet and get up in the morning? No stomach problems are responsible for this.
So? Wondering if this is the case again? Of course, it is. However, you will not have this problem at all while you are on earth. Once floated in space, defecation becomes very difficult.
This time the astronauts are on the way to solve that problem. It is learned that a toilet made of precious titanium has been built for use in space at a cost of about two and a half crore dollars. A rocket named ‘Kalpana Chawla’ has already crossed the International Space Station from NASA.
The NASA rocket was scheduled to leave for ISS on September 29 with supplies. His job was to deliver them to the International Space Station. This special type of toilet was on the list of those juices.
But at the last minute, the launch was postponed due to an unknown problem with the rocket. But on Friday night it was successfully launched again with supplies. The rocket will reach the space station on Monday. This has been informed by NASA in a tweet.
New @ISS_Research is headed to the @Space_Station after the successful launch of @ Northrop Grumman’s Cygnus spacecraft. Cargo aboard includes research on cancer treatments, a crop of radishes to cultivate, a VR camera, a new space toilet, and more: https://t.co/D3XyxvD284 pic.twitter.com/Flqh8sryR1

Last year, two toilets on the space station were rendered useless, leaving diapers relying on astronauts. Russia built these two toilets. At the same time, there was a growing concern about waste disposal in space. Female astronauts were particularly troubled.
In the end, the lightweight, high-tech titanium toilet was built. NASA claims that its waste disposal system is also of a high quality due to the technology. This toilet needs to be properly placed on the space station. Then worry-free.
If all goes well, NASA plans to send astronauts to the moon and Mars in the future, they will also use such toilets. Now such an expensive toilet has been built for that purpose. But how it is working, his report will match from the International Space Station.
