A space toilet can be used in a low gravity environment. In the absence of gravity the collection and retention of liquid and solid waste is directed by use of air flow. Since the air used to direct the waste is returned to the cabin, it is filtered beforehand to control odour and cleanse bacteria. Waste water is vented into space and any solids are compressed and stored for removal upon landing.

A belated Happy Birthday to George Carlin who turned 70 on May 12.
Religion has convinced people that thereâ€™s an invisible manâ€¦living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesnâ€™t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money.
