Going to the bathroom in space

A person demonstrates lifting the urine hose of a waste management system for space

For restroom needs during the Artemis II mission, crewmembers, including CSA astronaut Jeremy Hansen, will use Orion spacecraft's Universal Waste Management System – aka the space toilet. This advanced system will separate urine for release into space and stores feces for disposal upon their return. The system includes a removable funnel for easy cleaning and disinfection.  (Credit: NASA)
