Astronauts' sweat provides water for drinking

Recommended Posts

Again we see another example of Science Fiction becoming a reality:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- How do you quench someone's thirst when there is plenty of water, but not a drop of it is drinkable?

quote:

The Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, has been testing a device intended for the space station that would recycle astronauts' sweat, respiration and even urine into drinking water purer than any found in a tap.

Sound familiar? Although the device to do this is big and not as small as the desert suit from Dune it's a step in the right direction.

The tech to make a stillsuit a-la dune has been around for some time. And Frank Herbert was waaay ahead of his time when he described how it worked.

The real question is... wheres the fricken spice?
