NASA Will Pay You $20k To Design A Toilet!

Look, even in space, one needs a place to make a “pit stop.” However, regular toilets just won’t work in little to no gravity. NASA has come up with a plan for the space stations though outside of that… they’re looking for help! Yes, it is a big ask to come up with a design for a toilet that will work on the moon. That’s why they can use all the help they can get!

Since the moon has one-sixth the gravity of Earth, there is quite the challenge ahead in figuring out how to make it work. But in doing so you could win $20,000 cash… if you come in first place that is! Second and third place will also receive $10,000 and $5,000  respectively, so all you have to do is try… what do you have to lose?

Just come up with the design and surely NASA will help figure out all the hard stuff! The more ideas you have the better. You never know, one day we all the toilets in space could have been made by you! Talk about making a mark on the future!

NASA stated the competition will be open for submissions until August 17th, so don’t wait! Start drawing up those ideas… just don’t forget who told you about this if you win! 🙂
