NASA Video Reveals How Astronauts Use Bathroom in ISS

NASA astronaut and Navy SEAL Chris Cassidy has made a new tutorial video for the toilet aboard the International Space Station (ISS). And while Cassidy is calm throughout, it’s easy to imagine oneself Mr. Bean-ing the pricey water closet. Which would be a bad thing, especially considering the fact that the ISS’s newest titanium thrown costs $23 million.

The space agency recently posted Cassidy’s video to its NASA Johnson YouTube channel. Although it’s unclear if the arrival of the new titanium toilet was the impetus for the video—which does not feature the new unit—Cassidy makes it clear that “by far the most common question” asked of astronauts is “How do you go to the bathroom?”

To kick off the video, Cassidy gives a rundown of how it feels to have the urge to go in space. And it turns out that the sensations in regards to both “number one” and “number two” are the exact same as here on Earth.

Cassidy demonstrates all the steps astronauts must go through to use the WHC (waste and hygiene compartment) correctly. For urination, for example, Cassidy shows how an astronaut must turn on, and urinate into, a vacuum tube. Not before checking a series of control-panel lights first, however, which signal that it’s OK to urinate. Or “V to pee” as Cassidy says, thanks to the shape of the light array.

In regards to the ol’ numero dos, astronauts use a toilet with a “bowl” only five to six inches in diameter. To complete their movements, the astronauts must: poop into a bag, close it up (along with any toilet paper used), and then jam it into a bucket that can hold up to 30 “deposits.”

Even though Cassidy is obviously unfazed by the ISS’s bathroom procedures, issues must inevitably arise

Trump’s Covid-plagued White House reveals dangerous misunderstanding of testing

President Donald Trump’s White House continues to rack up positive tests, from Hope Hicks to Stephen Miller. On Tuesday, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany (and two of her aides) tested positive for SARS-CoV2, the coronavirus that causes Covid-19. Despite knowing that she was in close contact with both the president and top adviser Hope Hicks prior to their diagnoses, McEnany not only refused to quarantine, but even continued to give briefings with reporters without a mask.

Her stated reason for this behavior, up until Monday afternoon? She hadn’t tested positive yet.

This behavior highlights a fundamental and dangerous misunderstanding of the point of Covid-19 tests — and their limitations. If we don’t know how to interpret and respond to tests, we risk the kind of disaster now unfolding at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

To be clear, testing is not a prevention strategy. Just like a pregnancy test cannot take the place of birth control, Covid-19 tests should not be seen as substitutes for robust strategies to reduce community transmission. It is part of the public health approach, but not for the reasons people think.

The first and most familiar reason people get tested is to obtain a definitive diagnosis. This type of testing is most often done for individuals with symptoms — people who have a cough, fever, loss of taste or smell, or fatigue. Asymptomatic contacts of a known Covid-19 positive patient may also be tested to rule out infection. This type of testing is usually done with a “PCR” test, which amplifies the virus and which is currently considered the gold standard for testing, although other more rapid forms of molecular tests can also be used.

What the White House cluster reveals about virus’ spread

It wasn’t long after President Donald Trump and other Republicans were diagnosed with the coronavirus that people detected a common thread: All of them had been at the White House on Sept. 26.

Numerous people who attended the event to announce the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court are known to have caught the virus. Others close to people who tested positive at the event have since also caught the virus, some of whom initially tested negative for several days after the gathering.

The emerging White House cluster is the kind of incident that infectious disease experts are focusing on as a crucial way to understand how the coronavirus spreads. They’re known as “superspreader” events.

“What gives rise to transmission is based on multiple factors, and you get the best and biggest superspreading events when all the stars align in the wrong way,” said Jamie Lloyd-Smith, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at UCLA.

As the pandemic has evolved, infectious disease experts have zeroed in on so-called superspreaders who are thought to play a major and disproportionate role in transmitting the virus.

Although pieces of the puzzle are still missing, understanding those broader patterns of transmission will help scientists pinpoint not only how the virus spreads, but also what public health strategies will be most effective to curb runaway outbreaks.

There is no official definition for superspreader events, but they are characterized by incidents that result in a large cluster of infections. In March, a Biogen corporate meeting in Boston is thought to have been linked to 20,000 Covid-19 cases, according to a study published to the preprint server medRxiv that has yet to be peer-reviewed.
