A 12-year-old boy from Bridgeport helped design a spacecraft toilet for astronauts - as going to the bathroom in space without gravity can be a challenge.
Bodhi Chiravuri says he was watching the Space X launch in May with his father when they found the Lunar Loo Challenge, which encouraged people to design a toilet for outer space.
He says his design straps the astronaut on to the machine, which has to spin for artificial gravity.
NASA says he won third place within in his age group, and his parents say they're proud.
Bodhi says he wants to do something with science and math when he grows up.
