Try this site to learn about daily life in apparent weightlessness on a space station. It provides answers to all sorts of questions--about space food, space clothing, eathing and drinking in space and, yes, using the toilet. Also, don't miss Wheels in the Sky, which contrasts the "2001: A Space Odssey" vision of the space station as a huge rotating wheel, quite different from the International Space Station's fastened-together components. You'll find a delightful history of space station concepts, which go back as far as 1869!
