Finally, NASA going to make food out of human waste. Human waste is not going to be waste anymore. According to a report in IBNLive, NASA has allotted an amount of $200,000 to the researchers, hoping to create a special yeast. Professor Mark Blenner will attempt to genetically manipulate a particular yeast to create compounds which will help in recycling the food. This yeast is, according to theories grows on nitrogen and carbon. So, researchers are expecting to make use of the nitrogen in human urine and carbon in the carbon dioxide released from breathing.

If this succeeds, the astronauts will be able to go on a longer space expeditions. This research is funded, keeping the future in mind, where NASA is planning to send astronauts to Mars. Although this plan has been on board from quite a while, NASA is trying to make this happen by the end of 2030. Astronauts use synthetic food which lasts long. If this method works out, it will pave a way for many expeditions.

3 years of research have been scheduled to work on this. Let us hope this works out and this technology be extrapolated to other fields as well, to create a perfect recycling system.
