Astronauts returning to Earth tomorrow with a Space X capsule from the International Space Station will have to wear diapers because the toilet is broken.
The US Space Agency (NASA) astronaut Megan McArthur described the situation as not very optimal, but still feasible.
She and three other astronauts will be in the Space Ex capsule for 20 hours, from the moment they enter Sunday to the descending earth to Monday morning.
“Space flight is full of small challenges. This is just another one we will meet and take care of. We are not too worried about that, “said the astronaut.
The problem with the toilet in the Space Ex capsule was already noticed before the private flight in September. The toilet was then repaired, but it was found to be unusable in an orbit.
With Megan McCarthy, Frenchman Thomas Pesquet, American Shane Kimbrough and Japanese Akihiko Hoshide return to earth.
