Astronauts have quite a smelly problem as the main toilet has broken down on the International Space Station..Boston (ChattahBox) – Astronauts have quite a smelly problem as the main toilet has broken down on the International Space Station.

The plan is for the NASA space shuttle Discovery to bring up spare parts to repair the broken toilet.

Astronauts are using the toilet on the Soyuz escape craft which is attached to the ISS for now, but it is not big enough to hold up for long as it will be filled shortly.

The Russian-built toilet has completely broken down to this point, but no specifics have been revealed as to what spare parts are needed to fix it.

NASA is putting in a new system next year though which will turn urine into drinking water on the ISS.
