She helped design and test the Environmental Control and Life Support System, or ECLSS, which is on the International Space Station. Now Roman is working on systems that will provide life support for spacecraft that one day may carry humans to Mars or beyond.

    Other clips include astronaut Mike Fincke, who describes what space station recycling is like. Astronauts on the station in May 2009 were the first to drink water from the new recycling system.
