Imagine you're on your way to Mars and a crucial tool floats away to outer space during a spacewalk. Not to worry, you'll simply re-enter your spacecraft and use microorganisms to convert your urine and exhaled carbon dioxide into chemicals to make a new one. That's one of the ultimate goals of scientists who are developing ways to make long space trips feasible.
A team of researchers from Clemson University, Columbia University Journalism School and the University of Washington has discovered a security success in an unlikely place: the “Panama Papers.”
