It's amazing what you find out on news websites. Apparently there is a pluming problem on board the International Space Station. Astronauts are awaiting the arrival of shuttle Discovery, it is bringing a new pump to fix their broken toilet. I would never have guessed that pluming was in the job description for astronauts, though I suppose someone would need to know how to fix a broken toilet, as there could be trouble on board if the aliens could not be flushed away, never mind the captain's log.
