LivingInSpace could never happen if we were not able to sustain ourselves in such a harsh environment as outer space. HotelsInSpace will offer elaborate and sophisticated systems to support life with a redundancy to the sixth or twelfth. Basically, there are three areas that are absolutely necessary to sustain life in space: water, food, and breathable air.
Where there’s water, there’s life, at least on our planet. All living things from plants to humans must have water to survive. Here is how Tasha9503 proposes to fulfill that need. With each of the initial six heavy lift launches, in addition to satellites, computers, fuel containers, air and water purifiers, water will also be transported. Each launch will transport enough water to sustain 36 people in space. After the initial six launches, there will be enough water transported to sustain 216 people for a limited time. When the first passenger vehicle arrives with 213 passengers to the newly renovated spaceship , there will be enough water to sustain these people, just for a few days or weeks. Each HotelsInSpace will be able to support between 36 and 40 people indefinitely.
This will be made possible by recycling the water supply. Water purifiers will convert water used for cleaning into pure water. The same purifiers will also recycle urine into fresh water. Dehumidifiers will extract humidity created by our own sweat and breathing then purify the collected water into reusable water.
With each heavy lift vehicle, food will also be transported in the form of dry and frozen food. Frozen food will be lifted in freezers and will remained frozen until people need it as they arrive in their newly renovated HotelsInSpace. Food will also be transported along with passengers in each passenger vehicle with each launch. This fresh food will consist of menu items that each passenger fills out prior to their flight. It’s somewhat like bringing fresh food on airliners today and feeding people on board, only the space food will be specific to people’s diet and desires. The food needed for each Hotel In Space guest will be transported with the guest or on later flights depending on the duration of their stay.
Breathable air will be contained and stored along side the water containers under benches and counters, and released throughout the spaceship via air ducts. As air quality diminishes based on factors such as low oxygen, high carbon dioxide, increases in temperature and changes in relative humidity, the air will be scrubbed and recycled to sustain life inside the HotelsInSpace. This is accomplished with air purifiers. Basically air purifiers will work by reducing the levels of carbon dioxide as well as generating oxygen by electrolysis of water, as one example.
Other methods are being designed and tested and may be employed as these methods are proven practical for LivingInSpace. One method, currently in the conception stage, basically collects particles from the air and filtered in greenhouses. Tasha9503 has plans to utilize such concepts; this method will be practical for longer flights that will go beyond our planet. The advantage with such a method is that the greenhouses will be a practical means for food production along with stale air consisting of carbon dioxide being released into the greenhouses to sustain the plants.
All air water gasses and other products will be piped and pumped between the spaceship and landing craft when there are docked. Extra substances can be packaged packaged and transported in the cargo bays.
