NASA’s “Space Poop Challenge” is paying for your thoughts on upgrading its crappy system

If you’re an innovative person with ideas about how best to deal with your bodily functions while wearing a spacesuit, then NASA wants to hear from you! The agency is currently soliciting entries in its aptly titled Space Poop Challenge, posted on the website HeroX, to “source a system that routes and collects human waste away from the body” for “fully-suited astronauts.” 

What’s more, it pays. The innovator with the winning design gets $30,000. 

Right now, astronauts use space toilets when they’re out of their suits and diapers when they need to wear their spacesuits during launch and entry, but diapers are usually only worn for a matter of hours. They’re also uncomfortable, and keeping waste next to your body for long periods of time can lead to irritation and infection.
