Elon Musk says Inspiration4 crew had 'challenges' with the toilet

It was probably a low-flow toilet.

Did somebody try to flush the iguanas?

But it comes with an unsurpassed view of Uranus!

What's that smell???

Jiggle the handle.

This is why we never saw a toilet on the Enterprise.

I think the Enterprise had a tele-potty-porter with a tractor beam which is why Scotty had to sign an NDA.

Can't they just stop at a Stuckey's?

Now they know better than to have that big pre-flight Mexican supper.

Y'all are hilarious! Thanks for the laughs today.

I'm with MOTW, THESE comments are FUNNY ! (I just jiggled a toilet handle this morning...)

As far as toilet "challenges" go, I picture the male crew members doing a "who can hit the bowl from the farthest away" thing.

I would imagine that diarrhea in space would be disastrous!

The Roswell, New Mexico, aliens claim the almost astronauts got off easy. When some alien spaceship stops by and asks to use your toilet, things can get rather messy.

Do things flush "up" or "down" in zero gravity? I have a hunch this is how Klingons were discovered,

Around the time of the moon landing, and more importantly post War Between the States, this band took a Giant Leap for Mankind when they wrote this battle hymn which explored the possibilities of future outer space toilet solutions two years before Mr. Musk was born not having yet taken one small step.
