  • Pressurized Environments

    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.

    One of our earliest successful pressurized environments was from 1921, a “modified” Airco DH.9A, British single engine light bomber the first aircraft to fly with a pressurized cockpit module.

    Since then most all of our large aircraft utilize pressurized cabins, this is due to the lighter air pressure found at higher altitudes. In reality many of our world travelers could almost be called astronauts, for they have achieved a distance almost halfway to space on each intercontinental flight they take. Also, we as airline passengers have gotten used to the cramped confines and high prices of those aircraft cabins as astronauts have aboard the International Space Station.

    In the near future, our GSO Lunar Station One will be constructed in similar fashion to the ISS, though with spaciousness and a much lower price tag in mind. Developed mostly from materials currently available on the lunar surface and constructed in a modular fashion, our station will have more room to move around in, personal quarters for our crews and include lounges and entertainment facilities for people to wind down and relax.

    No enclosed system is perfect however, that much the critics have right and a fully closed-loop biosphere is still many years away. This does not mean we will be unable to survive for long periods of time in space, nor will it be especially difficult. What it does mean, is that our station will need consistent resupply from Earth.

    For the GSO and the world, this is good news however, the GSO has never planned on creating a fully closed station, as resupply operations will mean many new jobs on Earth to support our growing resupply efforts, more flights into space will lower costs for travel, it will also mean our GSO lunar crews and guests can continue to enjoy good food and comforts from home, which will make their stay in space a memorable and exciting time.

      One of the earliest successful pressurized systems was nearly a century ago? Wow!

  • 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.

    Living and working in space will not be very difficult. Humanity...

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • Water in Space
    Caed Aldwych
    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...
    Water will be used for creating oxygen and of course drinking

  • 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...
