Water Purification Systems
Back in the 1960s, NASA found a way to purify the astronaut’s drinking water. They did this by creating an electrolytic silver iodizer. Today, you can purify the drinking water inside your home using an add-on for your sink (think Britta). At the same time, these systems are used to kill bacteria and keep recreational pools clean.
Drinking Your What?!: Believe it or not, the water purification system designed for astronauts made water drinkable in the most insane ways. Believe it or not, these purification systems can produce drinkable water from wastewater. As in respiration, sweat, and yes…even your own urine. Well, you got to find ways to keep yourself hydrate, right?
