Since we talk about urine a lot here in the forum I thought I would post this and maybe lighten things up a bit, since we all seem to have an excess of urine:

Have a business meeting in Houston next week? Be a good American and drop by for quick pee break at 2200 Space Park near the Johnson Space Center. Yes, you read that right: NASA needs your urine.

The drive is to benefit NASA's fledgling Orion Program, which aims to put astronauts back on the moon by 2020. The pee drive is to help engineers working on designing the new spaceship's toilet.
