Space Station's New Robot, Dextre, Passes All Tests Butt One, that is the essential Buttwipe test.
One of the truly nagging problems of space travels has involved the dilemma of number two. Space suit engineers have mastered the pre- dick-a-ment of pee-pee but the mind-numbing number two trouble still troubles them.
Houston had hoped they no longer had a problem with the space suit poop shoot with the new improved Robot Dextre. He was thought to be able to feed, drain and even wipe up after meals. But in a recent post-mission assessment, astronauts and astronauts were unanimous about the rear entry failings of Dextre.
Russian Cosmonaut Yevgeny Poopov scored the robot's ass wiping abilities to be substandard. His space station consort Nastasha Reardripovna found Dextre to be unsatisfactory in its anal wiping technique.
One anomaly in the female space pioneers' evaluations was the consistent mention of Dextre's urinary cleaning procedure.
All astronauts scored Dextre above average to super in its ability to wipe the female urinary opening.
