Toilet trouble for space station

BBC NEWS | Americas | Toilet trouble for space station:

"International Space Station astronauts are eagerly awaiting the arrival of shuttle Discovery - it is bringing a new pump to mend their broken toilet." (emphasis mine)

"'Clearly, having a working toilet is a priority for us,' shuttle payload manager Scott Higginbotham said."

"The space station's solid waste unit is said to be functioning well."
