Changing piss into drinking water!

In space, hydration is at a premium. That's why astronauts living onboard the International Space Station (ISS) go through some extreme measures to drink the doctor's recommended amount of H20 every day—they recycle it from pee.

For years, NASA relied on a complex hardware system—in personal EVA suits and aboard the ISS itself—to recycle moisture, like sweat, condensation, and urine. Now, this system is getting a big upgrade. Launched March 6 aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. This new equipment will make the machines more efficient, reliable, and save money, providing a reliable supply of H20...even if it's from an unconventional source.
