There Are No Passengers on Spaceship Earth

August 22, 2017

Dear Crew Member,

The Global Water Crisis is half a generation away. We must be radical.

Imagine living a life using only 10 gallons of water a day, instead of 100 gallons, which is the average per person usage in the US. Without revolutionary technology, that life would be impossible...

We are seeing dramatic innovation across industries. In spite of it all, civilization has yet to tackle archaic water systems to address the growing needs of 7 billion people.

Population growth and climate change are already challenging current systems, and natural resources cannot meet the increasing demand on our water supply...unless we change the paradigm.

While working on NASA’s Mars Mission, the water budget to sustain life in space was impossible. Unsustainable. However, by recycling the water used by astronauts, the water footprint decreased radically.

A life in space that once seemed impossible was now practical.

And why not here on Earth? Water recycling is not limited to microgravity. Imagination, without action, is pointless.

At ORBITAL SYSTEMS, we are creating a new paradigm, making living under 10 gallons of water a day the new norm. Without compromising on comfort and experience, we’ve started by tackling the biggest culprit, the shower, reducing water-use to two gallons.

Marshall McLuhan said, “There are no passengers on spaceship earth. We are all a crew.”

Are you on board?
