Space Poop Challenge

The Problem

In space, no one can hear you flush. This is because in space, there are no toilets. While you may go about your life mostly unaffected by this, it is more of a challenge for our brave astronauts in their space suits.

After all: when you gotta go, you gotta go. And sometimes you gotta go in a total vacuum.

If they can figure this one out, the troops will never again have to dig a slit trench, and civilians will be able to not have to stop at every fourth McDonald's on that next road trip.
