$250 million Space Station Water Recycler gets clogged?

by quasar-atl / January 12, 2010 7:48 AM PST

Dear Buzz Gang and Crew,
I am just going to state the facts okay? Wink

NASA Engineers and other researchers are trying to figure out how to prevent clogging of their $250 million Space Station Water Recycling systems. It appears that the waste from the Astronauts has too much calcium.

So even in space, calcium buildup and deposits are still a problem for your plumbing. Hey NASA Engineers and Scientists, just call your neighborhood plumber.

Later People. Happy
