NASA has purchased super space toilets from Russia for $19 million. Let's repeat that: $19 million for toilets. It starts to make sense as you consider the logistics of using a toilet in zero-gravity.
The space toilets will recycle space urine into space water, which the space men can space drink. TheFeed thinks that is space gross.
The tax on $19 million is killer, so we hope the US Government at least bought them duty-free.
