Stewarding innovations in space for Earth
Sustainability starts with unlimited fuel in space
How Refueling Helps
Sustainability improves when we stop using disposable, single-use satellites and de-orbit responsibly.
Refueling reduces the need to launch massive amounts of material off-Earth (like fuel to get to Mars) and provides the materials in space to allow manufacturing to move off-Earth.
Assuming Orbit Fab can enable 10% of power generation and manufacturing to move off-earth, we can curb C02 emission by 2.3 Gigatons per year.
Fuel from the Moon
Lunar propellant production significantly reduces the cost of refueling even in LEO, and enables us to live sustainably off-Earth without the dependance on Earth’s resources.
These hydrocarbons can be obtained through Calcination of C-type asteroid regolith and are theorized to be mixed with water deposits on the lunar South Pole.
Making Hydrogen Peroxide on the Moon and shipping it to Low Earth Orbit is:
- Mine icy regolith
- Extract and purify the water
Convert in an electrochemical cell
- Store and distribute
