GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Water quality problems are always making headlines: Metals in the water, chemicals in the water, so many pollutants in our drinking water.

Brad Spakowitz tells us about a gel which almost sounds too good to be true: It can separate water from numerous types of contaminants, resulting in purified, drinkable water. No power is needed except the heat of the sun, and it can scale up to large clean-up projects.

He also updates us on the mission to Mars, where we’ll have to wait a little longer for the new rover’s helicopter to make its maiden flight, and how to see a flyover of the International Space Station in Wisconsin’s skies.
