Aside

Russian spacesuits, showers, and toilets for space operators

Popular Mechanics posted this article and these pictures of an old Soviet spacesuit factory.  According to the article, the Tomilino, Russia-based factory is still manufacturing things (but doesn’t really say spacesuits, specifically).  They apparently manufactured spacesuits for cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin–and for dogs named Laika, too.

The toilet looks, um, functional.
