Astronauts Now Drinking Recycled Urine [video]

Astronauts aboard the international space station activated the new water recycling system that generates drinking water from "urine, sweat and water that condenses from exhaled air." Said astronaut Michael Barratt, "The taste is great."

Of course the AP had to go there: "At the international space station, it was one small sip for man and a giant gulp of recycled urine for mankind."

See the video for the astronauts clinking their plastic drinking pouches.
