The Final Frontier Part 2: How Astronauts Go to the Bathroom in Space and How Women Can Safely Pee Standing Up

In this episode of The Brain Food Show, we begin by following up on a previous discussion on what the first good movie based on a computer game was.  We then jump right into the various ways in which astronauts have managed their necessary expulsions over the years and some hilarious stories and interesting related facts that go along with that, including the teased Apollo 10 incident from The Final Frontier Part 1.

We then discuss the lost skill of women peeing standing up without getting any pee on themselves or their underwear in the process, and how exactly this is done with no equipment required.

On another note, if you could do us a huge favor and rate and review this show in whatever podcasting platform you’re using (including hopefully giving us some feedback related to the new format), we would be extremely grateful. Thanks!

  • How did you go through a talk of space toolets without bringing up Don Renthke aka Dr Flush the lead designer of the space toilet from Hamilton Sundstrand (now UTC Aerospace Systems).

    He is hilariously quotable and his business card has a drawing of him flying through space on a toilet. I will gladly send a picture if you are interested.

  • Hey guys,

    Love all your posts and podcasts! Keep up the great work! 🙂
