Hello and welcome to the toilet of the International Space Station. Let’s say you’re up here on ISS and you need to go to the rest room. You want to come to this cabin and the first thing you want to do is grab this piece of equipment and turn this rotary switch 90 degrees to the open position. What that does, is it turns on the fan, which creates a suction effect in this hose, so that you can use this yellow element for your Number 1.
For Number 2, the principle is actually exactly the same, suction.
We have a solid waste container here and on top of it is this seat and the solid waste container is connected by a – this hose to the same fan so that again the same suction effect allows you to do your Number 2 in weightlessness.
I want to show you how it looks but since we don’t want any bad smells to come out we’re gonna actually turn on the fan. It’s gonna be a little bit loud, there we go, now you can lift the lid, there is this seat that sort of looks comfortable but you don’t really seat – sit in weightlessness.
So most of us actually prefer to lift this one as well and use directly the opening that goes into the bag. And in fact, there is a bag in here – in there, it looks like this. And when we are done with our business, we close the bag and we push it down into the solid waste container and then of course as a courtesy to the next person we put a new fresh bag inside.
The solid waste container gets changed when it’s full, which is roughly every 10 days for two or three people using it. This one for example was installed on the 61st day of this year. So probably roughly around day 71 we will have to change it again.

But urine gets recycled. So from the pretty complicated hydraulic equipment and its behind here and makes the use of the toilet in space possible. The urine actually gets directly transferred to another piece of equipment, which is here in the floor which is called UPA, urine processing assembly, which is the first step into turning urine into portable water.
