The space shuttle Discovery is scheduled to lift off Sunday at approximately 6:30pm CDT for yet another trip to the ISS. If I can remember I hope to watch it on the NASA channel. Now, you all know how I'm a little freak about the space shuttle, so I know you're not surprised to hear me say that. However, from a CNN article about this trip, here's one of many reasons why I'm so very glad I'm not an astronaut:
"The shuttle also will carry a replacement for a failed unit in a system that converts urine to drinkable water, NASA said."
I can't even tell you how much I wouldn't want to be the guy that figured out it was broken.
