We are GO for Water Recovery System

NASA Gives Space Station Crew 'Go' to Drink Recycled Water, NASA

"NASA's Mission Control gave the Expedition 19 astronaut crew aboard the International Space Station a "go" to drink water that the station's new recycling system has purified."

"Mission Control radioed the news to the crew Wednesday, following a report from the Water Recovery System team that station program managers approved. The decision is an important milestone in the development of the station's environmental and life support systems, which will begin supporting six-person crews at the end of May."

Editor's note: No jokes now, ok? BTW, NASA, if you send me to the space station I'll write a report on the system.
