What is your innovation?
To address the Space Poop Challenge, the in-suit waste management system, "Universal BioWaste Control" was created to deal with the excess bio-waste through liquid purification with the use of 0.1 micron hollow fibers, separation and storage of solid waste with the use of piston pumps to create a suction effect or vacuum to surpass the challenge of micro-gravity; while maintaining hygiene through specialized undergarments with micro-jets which enable cleaning of the remaining residue of the "sensitive places".
Fill in the following one-sentence “mad lib”: A inspired my innovation of B; B is important because of C and has made D impact.
The Human Circulatory System inspired our innovation of Universal BioWaste Control (UBWC); the UBWC is important for astronauts' hygiene which would impact their health stuck in a suit for six days
What was the motivation behind your innovation?
To make the exploration of space more comfortable for the astronauts who risk their lives for the sake of knowledge and discovery. Staying clean and healthy is the way to do so.
How does your story bring the "Wow Factor"?
I believe having a team made up of different members from four different time zones compiling a video, research, diagrams, and a 15 page report in three days due to lack of time, and overcoming the many challenges faced with different ideals and restrictions for a common goal is an amazing feat.
Anything else you want to share?
Not as of now.

Fill in the following one-sentence “mad lib”: The A challenge sought submissions to B. I accomplished this goal through C.
The Space Poop Challenge sought submissions to create an in-suit waste management system for long duration tasks or emergency situations. I accomplished this goal through the creation of the Universal BioWaste Control system with my teammates.
If you convinced someone at a cocktail party they should enter an incentive challenge, what would you say?
If there is something you don't like, don't just sit around and complain, do something about it.

You will never know until you try.

So dare to create something better through incentive challenges-who knows, maybe you could be the next Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg.
