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.
