System to rid space station of astronaut exhalations inspires Earth-based CO2 removal

Filtering water is an incredibly important process, but it's not as simple as it seems. As the pores in a membrane inevitably get clogged with material, it takes time and energy to clean or replace them. Now researchers have tested a new nature-inspired membrane that filters liquids using other liquids, making for a more efficient and longer-lasting membrane...
