Astronaut Water

It's a Pisser

5/21/2009 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0521_pee_to_water_ap_tmz_02-1The #1 source for drinking water in space ... is #1. 

Astronauts on the International Space Station had their first taste of liquid goodness from their new urine recycling system -- which magically transforms pee, sweat and water condensed from exhaled air to create a nice cool glass of aqua. Who's thirsty!?

But here's the crazy part -- not only do the astronauts think the final product tastes great ... but they even cracked jokes about it, claiming the water came with this special warning: "drink this when real water is over 200 miles away."

Space humor -- it's golden.

I guess if you didn't know you could stomach it, but for me knowing would make it taste bad. Just like meat, mine comes from the store not animals. See sometimes it helps to convince yourself that all is sunshine and rainbows and nothing is gross.

All tap water on earth is recycled waste. This is why you can find trace amounts of medication in tap water. It's filtered so much that it's cleaner than bottled water though.
