NASA's advances in personal comfort during those long rides

Fortunately, Alexandra Gekas has saved me the chore of doing the research on this one: what's up with the diaper worn by Nowak in her long voyage to inner space and Florida?

The fact that she word a diaper for the journey puzzled me only for an instant--of course, NASA and those long space flights! I'd read about the diaper phenomenon in space before, although never such a creative land-based use for one. Click on the link and read all about it. There's a diagram there to study, as well.

Then again, maybe better to skip it. Your call.
