NASA Launches ‘Space Poop’ Challenge to Solve Diaper Problem

HOUSTON -- While everyone is finally winding down from the mannequin challenge, NASA has issued a new challenge they hope takes its place on the throne -- the porcelain throne to be exact.

They're calling it the Space Poop Challenge.

You read correctly, NASA is looking for someone to invent bathroom and menstrual management systems for spacesuits.

As of now, having to relieve yourself in outer space isn't exactly ideal. Astronauts wear diapers and those are only good for a few hours due to the potential health issues that can arise from sitting in a dirty one for too long.

The new system will be used in what has been nicknamed the Pumpkin Suit, which are the suits used for launches and landings. The deadline for the challenge is December 20th. The winner will be announced January 31st.

Get your thinking cap on so that astronauts can take one small step for man and one giant crap for mankind!
