Poll: What is your solution solving a problem associated with the non-functioning toilet in space?

Toilet pump urgently loaded into shuttle09:58 AEST Fri May 30 20081 hour 24 minutes agoCrisis almost over - the ISS is getting a toilet pump.VIEWS: 0| FLOCKS: 0| 0 comments so farAfter being rushed in from Russia, a toilet pump has been loaded into the space shuttle Discovery just in time for this weekend's liftoff to the international space station, where the lone commode is acting up. A NASA employee based in Moscow hand-carried the pump on a commercial flight that touched down Wednesday night. Within hours, the pump and related equipment were packed away aboard Discovery. Discovery is scheduled to blast off this weekend on a 14-day mission. The main delivery item is an 11-metre-long Japanese lab; it will be the biggest room once installed at the space station. Good weather was forecast for the late afternoon launch, and the countdown was going well. While the three space station residents are eager to see the Kibo lab, the bathroom situation has become a more pressing issue. For the past week, the two Russian and one American men have had to periodically manually flush the urine side of the Russian-built toilet. The job takes 10 minutes and requires two people. "Insert that into your daily life and you can see it would be quite inconvenient," Kirk Shireman, NASA's deputy space station program manager, said at a news conference. The solid-waste part of the toilet is working properly.
