Mehrdad Mahdjoubi, an Industrial Designer was involved in a Mars Mission project between NASA’s Johnson Space Center and Lund University, which lead to the inspiration behind ORBITAL’s innovative recirculating shower and its patented water purifying technology.
Mehrdad was tasked with finding the necessary water budget to sustain life in space, knowing that the current way we consume water here on Earth would be unfeasible in space. By recycling the water used by astronauts, the water footprint decreased radically.
A life in space that once seemed impossible, was now practical.
Mehrdad’s vision quickly turned back to Earth, where commercializing his water saving technology would have a far greater impact.
With a global move towards saving the world’s natural resources, ORBITAL SYSTEMS is an idea whose time has come.
