The year is 2269. The waste build up in landfills and Great Garbage Gyres in oceans created leachate that has seeped into the earth. Clean water has become a priceless commodity: traded on the world exchanges like Gold and Corn. The great irony of the age is that there is world peace since the 3rd world war, where North Korea was wiped out in 2145. World governments are collaboratively looking to the stars to help with growing populations. Britain and Russia launched the Mars colonization program, sending convicts from the world to Mars to begin terra forming the planet for human colonization.  In order to provide fresh water to the citizens of earth, the Enceladus water harvesting program was launched in 2165 as a joint venture between China the USA.  In it’s nearly 100 years of the harvesting program, earth was reaching a tipping point.
