NASA Thinks Poop Can Be Made Into Edible Goo… Seriously!
Talk about a crappy meal... That sure stinks for the astronauts... Something turd sandwich? Ok that's all I've got, But it is true NASA is researching turning feces into food!
Considering astronauts on the International Space Station are already using recycled urine for a water source this isn't to far fetched of an idea. Researchers from Penn State working with NASA say recycled food is very likely for the future of space travel. The "new" food source would feed astronauts during long missions and trips to planets like Mars.
The process of making it edible appears to be quicker than growing vegetables in space such as tomatoes and potatoes. The unfortunate thing for space travelers is it's not like they have much better options for what to eat..
