What happens if we run out of clean drinking water on Earth? Could we go to outer space to find some? Is there even water in space? In the sixth episode of the Water Series, we explore these and other questions together with a faculty member of the International Space University Juan de Dalmau and space engineer Tommaso Tonina. We also learn that water could be used as rocket fuel, and that, despite the impressive developments in the space sector, we just might have to look after the water that we have on Earth.
The Water Series is a podcast on various dimensions of water. Although it deeply considers issues of water scarcity, it goes beyond that, addressing more innovative perspectives, e.g. water as a human right, water as a weapon of war, water as a resource, etc. Additionally, the series seeks to explore existing and future solutions to the present water-related challenges. The Water Series is co-hosted by human rights lawyers Sonja Agata Bišćan and Zeyneb Kasmi and features expert interviews.
