You Can Help NASA Design A Space Toilet

NASA needs your help. We need to figure out how the astronauts can use the restroom in space.
NASA has announced The Lunar Loo Challenge. NASA hopes to go back to the moon in 2024 and has started a crowdsourcing effort to encourage inventors to invent a toilet that will work in the gravity-challenged atmosphere of the Moon.
Here’s the thing, the challenge being they will need a toilet that has all the same capabilities as ones here on Earth. So, NASA is calling on the global community for their novel design concepts for compact toilets that can operate in both microgravity and lunar gravity.
