ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - A professor from Ohio University hopes a device she created to extract water and hydrogen from urine will draw enough public votes in a competition to be sent on an unmanned mission to Mars in 2018.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1tkD9Bs ) reports the device is among 10 projects picked as finalists in the Mars One competition to send technology to that planet.

Gerardine Botte of Ohio University’s Center for Electrochemical Engineering Research created a device that can use urine to produce clean water and hydrogen that can provide power. The project is the only finalist from the Midwest.

The public can vote until Dec. 31 through Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and the Mars One website. The winning project will be announced next month.
