Science Sunday: How Do Astronauts Breathe in Space?

Who doesn’t love space? Astronauts have one of the coolest jobs, because they get to live in and explore space for months at a time. In thinking about this amazing journey astronauts take, we had one very important question. How do astronauts breathe while they are living on the International Space Station? Actually, astronauts get the oxygen that they breathe from water. As you have learned in science classes, water is made up of 2 hydrogens and 1 oxygen molecule. Scientists have found a way to break down that water into its basic molecules through a process called electrolysis. While the equipment used on the International Space Station is very complex, the process is something you can easily try at home. Watch the full Science Sunday segment below to learn more.
