The average person on Earth uses about 80 gallons of water per day, however, in space astronauts only use about 3 gallons of water per day. Because water is a limited resource in space, NEWT scientists are working on a solution to recycle water from urine using nanotechnology. In this video students will learn about the process required from extracting water from urine.
