Astronauts Will Soon Drink Their Own Piss


NASA has developed a water recovery device for its space stations that will recycle urine into potable drinking water.

Due to a recent breakthrough in the distillation process, astronauts will soon be able to drink water that comes from their own taps. NASA claims this new technology will transform ordinary pee into water of the highest purity, saving them over $600,000 a year.

Shipping a pint of fresh water into space costs $15,000, so astronauts have always reused as much water as possible.
