How do you 'go' in space?

by Katherine Scarrow

If you've always wanted to know how astronauts take care of business miles above the Earth's surface, you're not alone. According to NASA astronaut , 'how do you go in space?' is the number one question asked by school kids.

In the YouTube clip below, Mike speaks with STS-132 Mission Specialists and as they learn to use the shuttle Atlantis' 'space potty.'

It's a remarkably complex process that involves hoses, mirrors, anatomy-based funnels, toe restraints and an 'alignment camera.'

But it's not necessarily as bad as it sounds. In fact, it might be a bit fun. In a funny moment, Mike compares the motion to Peter Fonda in 'Easy Rider' on a chopper.
