I read a story this morning...I can't remember where, that the toilet on ISS
has had a broken pump for the past 5 days...they were rushing the 35# pump
from Russia to FL and in order to get it onto the shuttle, they were
considering leaving off a set of wrenches so that they had some place to put
the pump.

The pump was brought into the country in a diplomatic bag...

Then again...maybe I just dreamed it all and should start writing science
fiction ;-)

don't recall (senior moment) the results.  With all the TONS of stuff they
regularly pack up there, it seems logical (another senior moment), that an
extra few pounds wouldn't even be noticed, maybe even more than a few
pounds.  Then we can figure a way to get it even higher than the ISS.  Just
thinking of a way to get more of a foot in the shuttle door.
