WMFE Space Reporter Brendan Byrne on NASA's Space Toilet

This Wednesday, September 15 SpaceX is planning to launch from Kennedy Space Center with four private astronauts on board for its Inspiration4 mission. It’s the first of its kind, with a crew made up entirely of civilians. Today, we meet space reporter Brendan Byrne from WMFE in Orlando to get a bit of a peek behind the curtain.

We get the latest on SpaceX’s upcoming launch, and find out what the other private space companies Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic are working on. We also get an update on the status of NASA’s planned missions to our moon, and Jupiter’s moon Europa, and discover the intricacies of space toilets.
