So my dog is only trying to protect my floors from cosmic radiation?

what could possibly go wrong?

Are you sure it's Mars and not Uranus?

Didn't Radioactive Poop Shield open for Federal Duck?

Does this writer know that ozone is not a place? (Although an "O-zone" does sound like a nice place to visit).
And "there's no place for that material to go"? They must need a bigger space, so to speak.

Check out the book "Packing for Mars" by Mary Roach.
With first hand accounts of what astronauts live through it will disabuse most people of wanting to take a space trip. (Ex.-microscopic particles of human waste floating in the capsule)

Ozone isn't a place? So where have I been lost in, so to speak, all these years?

Two drinks of wine, one drink of gin, and I'm lost in the ozone again.

What happens to all the radioactive poo then ? Or we going to use it to power our mandated 70mpg cars ?

Ship to be pushed by the solar wind. In space nobody can smell your stank.

Washington could certainly build one of these to protect itself.
