Spin-Off: Water Filtration System

"Water is a scarce resource away from Earth. Originally designed to purify water for the Apollo astronauts, NASA’s silver ion technology purifies and softens water while inhibiting bacteria growth in filtering units. Today, manufacturers use this combined technology to create home-use water filtering systems that not only purify and soften, but also remove objectionable tastes and odors."
