A strange experiment at the German space agency, DLR, may just feed future Mars expeditions.
A fish tank brimming with urine is the first thing you see when you enter Jens Hauslage’s cramped office at the German space agency, DLR, near Cologne. It sits on a shelf by his desk, surrounded by the usual academic clutter of books, charts and scientific papers.
Rising from the centre of the tank are two transparent plastic cylindrical columns – around a metre in height. Spreading from the top of each tube is a bushy, healthy-looking tomato plant with green leaves, flowers and even a few bright red tomatoes. Read More:

You're right, the traditional method of spraying cow manure into the soil sounds much better

That's it pick on the old guy,*LOL*, OK, I see what your saying I suppose it's all pretty gross when you come right down to it, I stand corrected. Even with all that I think it's a good idea to stay away from the tomatoes when you go to Mars,*grin*

Poo from dogs (and cats) can contain parasites (worm eggs) that are harmful to humans.
