Trump offers epic response when astronaut explains NASA is making urine ‘drinkable’

President Donald Trump spoke with NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson on Monday to congratulate her for setting the record for the most cumulative days in space.

In the call to the International Space Station, the president asked Whitson to talk about some of the things they are working on.

“What are we learning from having you spending your time up there, I know so much research is done — I’m getting a glimpse of it right here in the Oval Office — what are we learning by being in space?” Trump asked.

Among the things Whitson detailed was learning how to “close the life-support system” on long-duration missions.

“That means we right now, for instance, are making solar power that we collect and using it to break apart water into oxygen and hydrogen,” she explained. “The oxygen we breathe, of course. We use the hydrogen, combine back with the CO2 that we take out of the air and make more water.

“Water is such a precious resource up here that we also are cleaning up our urine and making it drinkable,” Whitson continued. “And it’s really not as bad as it sounds.”

After a brief pause, a smiling Trump responded in epic fashion: “Well, that’s good. I’m glad to hear that. Better you than me.”
