This is the astronaut’s video guide to going to the bathroom in space

Have you ever wondered how astronauts use the bathroom? A lot of people do. 

In fact, so many people have asked that NASA astronaut Commander Chris Cassidy, who recently completed a stint as Expedition 63 commander of the International Space Station, explained how it works in a new video from NASA. Cassidy not only went into detail about the process, but he even took his video camera on a tour of the space station’s commode. 

First, the space station’s bathroom isn’t called the bathroom — NASA instead uses the term “waste and hygiene compartment” (WHC). Like bathrooms on Earth, the WHC has walls and a door to give the astronauts privacy, which they need given that the small, closet-like bathroom is right next to the space station’s gym, sandwiched between the treadmill and weight machine astronauts use to avoid muscle and bone loss during long expeditions in space.

Week 9 college football viewing guide, picks against the spread

Every week throughout the season we’ll give you a college football viewing guide by highlighting the five best games of the coming weekend. We will pick those five games against the spread and highlight some other matchups that caught our eye from a betting perspective.

The return of the Big Ten brought plenty of excitement and drama, and the conference again will be on center stage in Week 9. 

When the Big Ten’s schedule was released, Ohio State’s trip to Penn State was quickly circled as one of the most-anticipated games of the year. But it lost a lot of its luster last weekend when Penn State was upset by Indiana in a wild game that featured a controversial ending. 

PSU dropped from No. 8 to No. 18 in the rankings, but the Nittany Lions have consistently been the Buckeyes’ top challenger in the Big Ten East since James Franklin

A guide to overcoming COVID-19 misinformation

If any group understands the toll misinformation can take on the public understanding of science, it’s climate scientists. For years, they have been trying to convey the findings from a ceaseless stream of studies showing the world is warming, while combating misinterpretations and outright fake news. A similar infodemic—a surplus of information both legitimate and misinformed—now plagues the COVID-19 outbreak.

An insider’s guide to the Big Ten college football season

Ohio State coach Ryan Day echoed the feelings of many around the Big Ten when he was recently asked what it has been like to watch college football games in other leagues.

“Most of it’s been torture,” Day said.

Patience has taken on a whole new meaning in 2020, especially for Big Ten coaches, players and fans. But the long wait ends this weekend as the Big Ten football season will kick off, beginning Friday night when Illinois visits No. 14 Wisconsin. All 14 league teams are in action, opening a delayed schedule that aims for nine games in nine weeks.

Lost in the Big Ten’s summer melodrama is the fact there are plenty of exciting on-field storylines for the league. Ohio State’s quest for a national title tops the list, but there are others, like which teams will challenge the Buckeyes, whether teams like Minnesota and Indiana can follow
