SpaceX Toilet Breaks, Astronauts in Diapers

Could you imagine taking a shit in space? I couldn’t. But get this. A SpaceX spacecraft had to return home in mid November with the astronauts in diapers. Yes, this is true and completely hilarious.

Due to a broken toilet, the astronauts weren’t able to use the one bathroom available. Unfortunately, there was no way of fixing the issue. Luckily, the astronauts had plenty of diapers on hand for this very reason. The crew for Mission Crew-2 were stuck in space for over 20 days and had no way of taking a shit. Think about it, zero gravity and shitting into a diaper as a grown adult? I can’t think of a funnier situation. Does it just float around in the diaper? Do they squat in the bathroom to do it?

If it were me, I’d just shit right in front of someone with a straight face. The smell had to be so brutal I can’t even imagine. Also, one of the astronauts said that part of their mission was to grow chili peppers in space on the international space station. Guess what they made….. TACO. Yes, they had the taco shits on the flight back while having to wear adult diapers. Thai is a total disaster.
