In space, nobody can hear you poop

NASA video shows space station astronaut swapping out solid waste container


If this were posted on any other day I’d be shouting this from the rooftops, but this being April Fool’s Day, you might want to take this with a grain of salt (if this is a prank, you got me, NASA).


In the following video, NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins gives us a video demonstration from the International Space Station on how they swap out the Solid Waste Container (SWC/KTO) - in other words, the space toilet.

Boy, do we take gravity for granted.
