  • Water in Space

    Global Space Organization will be researching a topic that will be very important in the near future. Our water use in space... Humans require approximately 2 quarts of water per day and more than that is needed of course for bathing, cooking, washing and also cleaning.

    Experiences on the ISS have shown, showering, washing clothes, dishes and water hygiene use can be very problematic. They have come up with some temporary solutions such as throw-away clothing, and sponge baths to make things easier for their crews and they also conduct intensive water reuse.

    Each of NASA's short term solutions, work very well within the confines of the International Space Station but as humanity advances out into deep space new ideas will need to be realized. The GSO is determined to find new and creative solutions to reduce our water consumption in space while still maintaining comfort during our stay.

    Water is abundant in space, this much is known, but as the GSO takes its first steps out into space, those limitless resources will be distant and in the beginning not easily accessible. Early on the GSO will have to rely on extensive resupply from Earth and engage in an intensive water reuse program to ensure the water we have lasts and is used efficiently until water access solutions are realized in space.

    In some ways our very own science fiction can lead to science fact. Future showers in space may utilize no water at all, leading our research to what else could be used, such as sanitizing ultra-violet rays or bacteria killing gasses. What we do learn in this next decade will help us conserve or re-utilize our water more efficiently in space and in turn may teach us how to do so easier on Earth.

    Zero gravity in space causes other issues of water use as learned by many crews on the ISS, causing water to form in circles and attach itself to surfaces. The lower gravity on our Moon will help alleviate some of the those issues our astronauts have faced aboard the ISS and with the implementation of unique rotating stations, gravity can be restored to Earth like conditions, alleviating the difficulties of a floating environment.

    Though we are on the right track, the lack of easy access to large amounts of water will still remain a problem in the next decade and creative ideas will be required that will help keep us clean, healthy and happy in our space progress.

    The GSO would love to hear your ideas.

    • GSO Open Letter
      Caed Aldwych


      The Global Space Organization needs your help..! A slowly expanding lunar station can become a reality in the next decade. The GSO vision would begin on the lunar surface using an inflatable system similar in scope to Bigelow Aerospace’s BA-330 modules. From our inflatable station habitat an initial GSO crew would begin work in constructing a permanent, multi-use lunar station fabricated from lunar materials.

    • Space Progress comes from Space Economy
      Caed Aldwych
      The world has not returned humans to our Moon since the early 1970's. People say its too expensive, or too dangerous. Still others say there is a reason humans have not been sent back for if there was a reason we would have done so. Those people are correct.

      We have not gone back because no government or individual has come up with a good enough reason to go..., yet.

      Many think we should just go and pay for it anyway no matter the cost even if we do not earn a profit,...

    • Pressurized Environments
      Caed Aldwych
      Living in a pressurized environment can certainly have its drawbacks. Many critics of human space programs are quick to state the obvious difficulties of living and working in a pressurized environment. Some go even further to suggest that living in them for long periods of time would be impossible or extremely difficult with our current technology. They are only barely touching reality however, fixating on already known issues that have solutions and refusing to look at the larger picture.

    • Oh Myyyy, Space is Dangerous
      Caed Aldwych
      Solar and cosmic radiation, micro meteors, extreme pressure and temperature changes, long distances, closed environments and limited resources are what await our Global Space Organization crews as we plan for our GSO Lunar Station One.

      Many of these space hazards have been limited in their severity due to our newer technologies and advanced learning. Though these hazards still present a threat, today we know more about how to protect ourselves in outer space, which will allow us to...

    • Food in Space
      Caed Aldwych
      As the Global Space Organization extends its human reach out into deep space another fundamental concern that awaits us is our food. Caloric requirements for astronauts were created by the National Research Council using a formula for basal energy expenditure (BEE). For women, BEE = 655 + (9.6 x W) + (1.7 x H) - (4.7 x A), and for men, BEE = 66 + (13.7 x W) + (5 x H) - (6.8 x A), where W = weight in kilograms, H = height in centimeters, and A = age in years. In essence, we need to eat an average...
