Watch How Astronauts Use The Toilet In Space

This is how astronauts use the toilet in space. It's really, really complicated because of that zero-gravity thing! And just like our friend Astronaut Leroy Chiao once told us, there's a ton of things to worry about before you actually plop down.

NatGeo walked through the toilet protocol for number one and number two and discovered that there's various funnels, tubes, switches, and EVEN A CAMERA AIMED AT YOUR BUTT to make sure the dumping process goes off without any floaters.

Give it a watch (don't worry, no real dumping went on):
