NASA is all set to launch a new space toilet to the International Space Station for astronauts.
.US Space agency NASA has sent a new Rs.170 crore titanium toilet better suited for female astronauts in a resupply mission to the international Space Station. Space station residents will test it out for a few months. At 45kg and just 28 inches, It’s roughly half as big as the two Russia built toilets at the space station.
The toilets currently on the ISS cater more toward men. But with more women joining the ranks, NASA set out to make a better toilet, tilting the seat and making it taller, said Melissa McKinley, the project manager at the Johnson Space Center.
