I notice with some amusement that the malfunction of the flushing toilet on the International Space Station and its subsequent restoration has been given a blow by blow account in the international news.
From the BBC website:
Correspondents say the toilet problem had become the main topic of conversation at Nasa press conferences. “It’s unfortunate we’re talking about toilets, but that really is the life, that’s the future of human exploration in space,” said deputy space station programme manager Kirk Shireman.
I’m sure there is some interesting insight to be extracted here but I can’t stop to ponder right now – I’ve got shit to do.
