Washington
American billionaire Elon Musk’s company SpaceX, who is dreaming of setting up a city on Mars, has now increased the trouble of the astronauts due to the malfunctioning of the toilet of the spacecraft Crew Dragon. Alam is that the Crew Dragon spacecraft will be sent to the International Space Station this month without a bathroom so that the astronaut can be brought back from there. The 4 astronauts will have to change their undergarments several times during this many-hour long journey.

Steve Stitch, the manager of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, said astronauts would have to rely on ‘undergarments’ because of toilets that were bad. In fact, 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.

The company is now hoping for NASA to sign the new design. Elon Musk’s SpaceX is using an old toilet design for the 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’. According to the news, now the SpaceX rocket will leave without a toilet.
