A unique signal detected by NASA's satellite

Its name called Phytoplankton. They are naturally giv off fluorescent light as they dissipate excess solar energy that they cannot consume through photosynthesis.

Who is here still remember, what is photosynthesis? Simply to say here, plants need sunlight to survive. Plants hardly can live without exposing to sunlight.

But this one very special. When they absorbed too much "light" or so called solar energy, they disperse out during the night time. You can see it looks like little tiny creature glows in the dark.

Recently one of Nasa's satellite, detected
fluorescent light emitted by planktons all around the world.

Watch this...

After this i will definitely replace my
fluorescent lamp with thousands of planktons. Save budget.. hahahaa.

Now astronauts can drink their own urine...

Weird sci-fi... or is it a fact?

Dont be surprised, this is real. The cost of bringing water to orbit is not cheap. So NASA got to find the alternative which can convert urine, sweat, and exhaled air into pure water... where astronauts could use it for drinking, personal hygiene and oxygen generation.

"toast...!.... yummy!"

Can you see that? ... they really.. really enjoy the drink..

Let me predict something here... this could be the conversation between two astronauts:
Astronaut1: Hey... it is a tea time.. lets have a break
Astronaut2: Ok.. where is my drinking bag.. owwh.. it's here
(then the astronaut2 taking out the water bag marked with a label that said: "Drink this when real water is over 200 miles away")
Astronaut1: Hmmm... mine is fresh and fragrance.. you want some?
Astronaut2: No thanks... mine is so sweet.. i think you should try it...!

Hahaha ... even thou this is an unbelievable news... but dont worry.. the water is 100% pure and clear water. They have a special laboratory, and thru analysis confirmed its purity and cleanliness.

One of the astronaut, Michael Barratt testified; "The taste is great.. We're just really, really happy to be here drinking this today.."
