Green Space Peace Place: It's easy to forget there's a international science team peacefully cooperating above our heads to help all earthlings.

What's off grid...WAY off grid, solar powered, makes 3.6 gallons of drinking water a day from urine it's such a good recycler, and is a beacon of peaceful international cooperation?
