It was pretty awesome. I thought it would be a good idea to pull out and display some space shuttle books for the students check out. One of the books I pulled out was To Space and Back by Sally Ride and Susan Okie from 1986! Today I was considering weeding this book because it's pretty old and we have plenty of up to date books about the space shuttle. But it's by Sally Ride and I felt kind of sad about weeding it. I started to flip through the pages and the book is full of really great pictures of the astronauts in space doing their daily routines; eating, sleeping, exercising. Then I came across this picture:
Yep. That's a space toilet. I thought, well, that's interesting. Then I noticed something in the upper left corner. That's a spatula. What do you suppose that is for?
