Disgusting Just Bloody disgusting

In fact, NASA wants to recycle just about everything -- even turning the
astronauts' sweat and urine back into drinking water.

Some crew members are leery of turning urine into drinking water. But Kloeris noted that water-treatment systems on Earth do that already."So in real life you are drinking somebody else's urine instead of your own," she said. "So I'm not sure psychologically which is worse. I think I'd rather drink my own."

Why's it disgusting exactly?

It's what they do in the UK - obviously it's all perfectly filtered and treated first. And ends up way cleaner than eg river water used in a lot of countries.

Recycling is a real necessity now overpopulation is stressing water supplies.

I agree that recycling is a real necessity but just the thought of dring other peoples excreates is disgusting.
