Spacex CEO Elon Musk said he plans to upgrade the toilets on the company’s Dragon spacecraft after there were some “challenges” during the Inspiration4 civilian crew’s three-day trip orbiting Earth.
The amateur four-person crew landed back down on Earth on Saturday evening near Cape Canaveral, Florida after spending three days in space cruising 335 miles above the Earth’s surface.
On Monday, Musk said that he had the opportunity to speak with the amateur astronauts about their historic experience.
First things first: fix the toilets.
“Definitely upgraded toilets 🙂 We had some challenges with it this flight,” Musk said in a tweet on Monday, answering questions from Twitter users.
It isn’t clear what issues the toilets had but it likely wasn’t the view.
Jared Isaacman, one of the ship’s crew members, told Insider in July that the ship’s bathroom was located in the ceiling and featured an all-glass dome — giving users an incredible 360-degree view of the cosmos while doing their business.
Musk also said that the next trip will include a small oven so that the crew can heat up food, as well as wifi.
The Inspiration4 crew munched on cold pizza during its trip.
“Yeah, a little oven for heating food & Starlink wifi,” he tweeted.
Musk also threw shade on President Joe Biden following the landing Sunday for not acknowledging the flight — or the $200 million of dollars it hopes to raise for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
Musk himself donated $50 million to the hospital.
