Astronauts Love Drinking Recycled Urine

In a move that should come as no surprise, NASA has completed its installation of a urine-to-water recycling system aboard the International Space Station. To celebrate, the crew of the ISS stuck some straws in funky-looking bags of the liquid and drank up. Some claim that the recycled piss is actually cleaner than most tap water on Earth, but I beg to differ. After all, it’s not just human whiz: there’s also animal waste going into the filtration system as well. Gross? Sure, but it’s all in the day of an astronaut.
