NASA Wants Your Help Engineering Future Moon Toilets for Prize of $35,000
NASA needs to develop a new way for astronauts to go potty in microgravity and lunar gravity, and the challenge calls on innovators to provide design concepts.
Science & Tech
NASA has just announced a challenge for a hefty prize and wants you to help in bringing the astronauts back to the Moon in 2024.
It is trying to tackle one big problem that has stumped NASA engineers since the early days of space travel: pooping in peace in space.
Space toilets do already exist, and some are getting updates like we've reported before in the case of ISS, but NASA is after a new design that’s smaller, more efficient, and works in both microgravity and lunar gravity.
