Urine need at NASA

NASA is looking out for number-one, and a lot of it.

Workers at the Johnson Space Center in Houston are being urged to pee in a cup for the final frontier.

NASA contractor Hamilton Sundstrand is working on the new Orion space capsule and needs urine donations to test the toilet system.

The Orion is designed to eventually take astronauts to the Moon.

The contractor needs about eight gallons of pee a day to give the urine disposal system a good work out.

One NASA official says you can't make fake urine.

The internal memo was posted on the Web site Nasawatch.com.
