    So if Peggy Wilson was already heading up on that flight why did they have to scramble to adjust equipment for females? Were they just gonna let Peggy use a diaper? Geez what a jip, become an astronaut, use a diaper but pay $20,000,000 and they’ll make you a female toilet?

    Peter: Whitson, like Ansari, was on the backup crew for the mission, thus there was no need to modify the Soyuz’s toilet until Ansari replaced Enomoto. Had Whitson been named to the prime crew for some reason, I suspect similar modifications would have been made regardless if Ansari was flying or not.
