ISS Onboard WC Broken
NASA representatives said about the very unpleasant breakdown that happened on the ISS: all WCs on the spaceship broke. Astronauts have to temporarily use special diapers. According to official information, there are two Russian-made WCs onboard ISS. Besides, they are in two more Russian Soyuz ships docked to the station, but they are not being used now. One regular WC does not work due to a constant indication of a malfunction, and the second signals that its tank is full. Astronauts had to ask permission to use special devices to collect urine, and Houston gave the green light. It remains to be seen long these difficulties will last, NASA representatives did not give any exact comments on this subject.
