"Definitely upgraded toilets :) We had some challenges with it this flight," Musk said in a tweet

Tech billionaire Elon Musk took to Twitter to reveal that there were "challenges" with the toilet during SpaceX's first entirely private trip to space and promised upgrades for future missions. "Definitely upgraded toilets :) We had some challenges with it this flight," Musk said in a tweet, answering questions from Twitter users. He did not elaborate on what these challenges were or how exactly the toilets would be upgraded. SpaceX's CEO recently said that next time the Dragon spacecraft will have a food warmer and free WiFi.

After spending three days in orbit, the world's first civilian mission of SpaceX's Inspiration4 returned to Earth on Sunday. The crew, onboard the Dragon spacecraft, re-entered Earth's atmosphere for soft water landing off the coast of Florida at 7.06 p.m. EDT (4.36 a.m. Sunday India time). The mission lifted off to orbit aboard SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft on last Wednesday (India time Thursday).

It was commanded by tech entrepreneur Jared Isaacman and joined by Medical Officer Haley Arceneaux, a physician assistant at St Jude Children's Research Hospital and pediatric cancer survivor, Mission Specialist Chris Sembroski, an Air Force veteran and aerospace data engineer, and Mission Pilot Dr. Sian Proctor, a geoscientist, entrepreneur, and trained pilot. The fully automated Dragon capsule reached an unusually high altitude of 585 km, surpassing the International Space Station by 160 km. The Dragon's dome window, inspired by the Cupola on the ISSl provided the crew with incredible views of Earth. (IANS/ MBI)
