One of the most important skills on the ISS? The ability to use the toilet

Japanese astronaut, Noguchi Soichi gathering in his third expedition to the International space station, talked about the fact that the toilet is one of the most important objects on the ISS, and the ability to use it – one of the most important skills.

For the First time on the ISS, Noguchi flew in 2005, on Board the American space Shuttle "discovery". Then he stayed at the station a little more than two weeks. The second flight of a Japanese astronaut took place at the end of December 2009 and lasted until the beginning of June 2010. The third flight, Soichi Noguchi will do at the end of 2019, when it will travel to the ISS in the composition of 62/63 long-term member of the expedition.

"One of the most important skills for living on the space station — the ability to use the toilet. Space toilet is one of the most important objects on the space station!" — wrote on his page on "Twitter" Noguchi and escorted entry with his photo next to this engineering marvel.

With the opinion Noguchi agreed to the official page of the Japanese space Agency JAXA, who made a retweet record.

Earlier this month, the attention of Internet users to the space toilet was attracted by Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev. On his YouTube channel he posted a video that showed and told how space equipped with a latrine and how to use it.

By the way, Artemyev along with his colleague Sergei Prokopyeva, has walked in space for 7 hours. With photo report about this event you can see.

Currently, the ISS has two toilets. Initially there was only one was located in the Russian module "Zarya". In 2007, the American space Agency NASA ordered the space-Rocket Corporation "Energy" toilet for your module "Tranquility". NASA could not develop its Russian analogue to the bathroom and so I decided that it would be easier to pay for a ready invention. The result for the bathroom, NASA has paid $ 19 million. A year earlier the us space Agency has ordered from RSC Energia, maintenance and replacement of some elements of the toilet.
