I'm going to spend the next few hours trying to forget the phrase 'feces stabilization,' thank you very much

Would you like to know more than you ever needed to know about waste management in space?

Of course you wouldn't. Neither did I. But curiosity got the best of me, and I hope it will get the best of you, too, so that we can suffer together.

I love that you spelled that with a G!

Thank you for that lovely image, which will haunt me for all my days.

My question is this: they solved the liquid waste problem, yes. But what of the solid waste issue? Are they transporting that back to earth too? I don't like the idea of dumping it into space much better... I know! They should release it during re-entry into the atmosphere, so it burns up!

I saw the title The Big Gulp, and am going to wait until I'm not eating my lunch to read any further.
