“Sometimes the water gets away from you, and you try and catch as much as you can,” Nyberg says.

In the ultra-efficient environment aboard the International Space Station, Nyberg says nothing goes to waste.  The water that evaporates from her wet hair eventually gets recycled and becomes drinking water.
