Wastewater troubles on the International Space Station
May 28, 2008
The toilet on the International Space Station has broken down
and repair parts are, quite obviously, a long way away. NASA is sending repair parts along on Saturday's planned Space Shuttle launch
, but the whole incident is a slightly-comical reminder that life without safe and reliable wastewater disposal systems
is crude and unpleasant.
You don't have to be on the International Space Station to need replacement pumps in a hurry. For Earth-bound pump needs, our online store
offers hundreds of pumps with quick shipment.
