SpaceX Inspiration 4 Mission Capsule Toilet Malfunctioned Urine Leaked And Collected Under The Floor

Washington
Last month, SpaceX’s Inspiration 4 mission aircraft suffered a fault during its three-day spaceflight in Earth orbit. The toilet of the spacecraft was damaged due to which urine started leaking inside the capsule. SpaceX vice president William Gerstenmaier, who worked for NASA, told the New York Times that urine collects under the floor of the capsule.

He said that we did not pay attention to it. Even the crew didn’t notice it until they got back. When we got the capsule back, we looked under the floor and found dirt spread under the floor of the Inspiration 4. A tube had come apart and got stuck under the floor, causing urine to leak out of the toilet. SpaceX has fixed this problem by welding on the toilet’s urine-flushing tube.
Spacex Inspiration4 Mission: 4 common people sent to space… Elon Musk’s company SpaceX created history
Old toilet design in new mission
The company is expecting NASA to sign the new design on Friday. Elon Musk’s SpaceX is using an old toilet design for Sunday’s Crew-3 mission, which is taking a new batch to the International Space Station. However, the Crew-3 mission will use another capsule, which has recently been named ‘Endurance’. The problem of bad toilets has been resolved by the company but it was not revealed until the crew returned.

SpaceX made history
Elon Musk’s company SpaceX made history in the field of space last month. SpaceX launched the Inspiration 4 mission with the world’s first all-civilian crew. In this, 4 tourists were in the orbit of the Earth at 575 km above for 3 days. They were sent to space on a Falcon 9 rocket aboard the Dragon capsule. The most striking feature of this mission was that there were no professional astronauts in its crew.
