What is your innovation?
A solution to NASA's spacesuit problem with long term storage of poop and pee while protecting the crew members from the harmful effects of skin contact with feces and urine. The undergarment would have two storage centers, one for urine and poop. The urine is collected by highly absorbing material that is wrapped around the legs so that it can hold 7 liters of urine. The poop is collected in the storage container in the Minaj like back of the undergarment. The container would be imbedded in silicone mold of Minaj backside. When one poops the fecal matter will be stored inside the container which is equipped with a one way valve for the poop. A small motor in the butt mold with a spade like scooper would spin and push the poop into storage.
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.
Nicki Minaj inspired my innovation of the spacesuit undergarment. The undergarment is important because it will allow astronauts to be in spacesuits for extended periods of time.
What was the motivation behind your innovation?
Just thought this was a fun project to be a part of in creating a solution. I have always been curious about pooping in spacesuits ever since seeing the Movie "The Right Stuff". I always wondered how astronauts pooped in their spacesuits. I guessed a diaper, but having seen baby's bottom after extended exposure to feces and urine, diapers must be a short term solution. I always thought that NASA with their brilliant scientists would have a more elegant solution for extended use of spacesuits. I was shocked to see that NASA had not come up with a longer term solution to the Spacesuit Poop challenge per my local newspaper.
How does your story bring the "Wow Factor"?
I did not have a solution to the poop in spacesuit problem until I saw a Nicki Minaj video. Wow what a butt she has. How can she function with such a large butt. Well she manages just fine. So her butt led me to design an undergarment that has a large Minaj prosthetic like butt that astronauts can wear for extended periods of time and that is functional while the astronaut is seated. What more of a WOW factor can we have seeing our astronauts with Nicki Minaj butts in their video feeds while in space.
The Incentive Challenge
Name of the incentive challenge related to your story.
NASA Poop Challenge
Fill in the following one-sentence “mad lib”: The A challenge sought submissions to B. I accomplished this goal through C.
The NASA Poop challenge sought submission to allow astronauts to be in spacesuits for extended period of time. I accomplished this goal through my Nicki Minaj undergarment solution. It then led to my solution to make pooping here on earth easier.
If you convinced someone at a cocktail party they should enter an incentive challenge, what would you say?
Let your imagination go wild but also keep in mind that this is the real world and your solutions should address this fact. I would also tell them that keeping the solution simple is important. The more complex something is the more problems you will create in trying to solve the problems. Keep it simple stupid is real advice.
