Nasa Urine Recycler is Good to Go. Unfortunately.
November 30th, 2008
“Houston, we have a problem.”
Eagle this is Houston, what’s poppin? Over?
“Yeah, so.. I float over to where the cooler’s supposed to be, but in it’s place there’s this…I’m looking at this machine labeled “Urine Recycler”. Over.”
Don’t tell me it’s broken again! Dammit Timmy, I thought I told you to fix the Urine Recycler on the Endeavour!
“Houston, Houston: I don’t think it’s broken.”
What? So what’s the problem?
“The concept is the problem Houston. I have a problem with the whole freaking concept behind this machine.”
Eagle we spent $154 million on the Urine Recycler —
“And I spent half of my life training to do what? Drink my own — Jeebus Houston! How much does Gatorade cost nowadays?! How much for tap water?! What is this, Jackass? Am I being Punk’d or something?”
Eagle it’s not always urine; it also recycles moisture and sweat–
“I’m crashing the ISS on your ass in 3-2-1 you sadists.”
