This Solar Device Converts Seawater to Drinking Water

An international team of scientists has developed a cheap way to provide fresh water to thirsty communities by making seawater drinkable without using electricity. So long as the sun is shining, they say, their device will produce enough high-quality potable water to cover a family's needs, at a cost of around $100. The scientists, from Massachusetts institute of Technology (MIT), U.S. and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China, believe their brainwave offers a simple solution to thirsty islands and arid coastal areas which lack a reliable electricity supply but have access to seawater. It could even help to prevent some of the mass migrations expected with climate change.  Read more.....
