Interest in the moon has been rekindled Recently, And Japan is looking to have fun. Researcher and engineer at the University of Kyoto and The Kazima Corporation has published their joint proposal For a three-pronged approach to sustainability People Life on and off the moon.

The future of space exploration is likely to be long in a low-gravity environment, whether in orbit or on the surface of another planet. The problem is, HeLocation in space can wreak havoc on our physiology; Recent Research Shows that astronauts can endure bone loss for months in space and their bones never return to normal. Fortunately, researchers at Kyoto University and Kazima Corporation are looking to engineer a possible solution.

Proposal, an announcement Press release Last week, it looked like something was ripped straight from the pages of a sci-fi novel Plan Consists of three distinct elements, the first of which, It is called “The Glass The goal is to bring simulated gravity The moon And through the Mars centrifugal ball.

Gravity on the moon and March About 16.5% and 37.9% of the world. Lunar glass and Mars glass can fill that gap; These are huge, rotating cones that will use centrifugal force to mimic the gravitational effects of the Earth. The approximate radius of these rotation cones will be 328 feet (100 m) and height 1,312 feet (400 m), and will complete one rotation every 20 seconds, creating a 1g experience for the people inside (1g is gravity) On earth). Researchers are looking at the back half of the 21st century to build lunar glass, which seems unreasonably optimistic because of the technical skills needed to turn it off.

According to the Google-translated version of the press release, the second component of the plan is the “core biome complex” to “relocate a degraded ecosystem.” The original biome complex will exist in Moon Glass / Mars Glass The structure and where human explorers will live, as proposed. TThe final element of the proposal is the “hexagon space track,” or hexatrack, A high-speed transport infrastructure that can connect Earth, Mars and the Moon. Hexatrack will require at least three different stations, one on Mars’ Moon Forbes, one on Earth’s orbit, and one around the Moon (possibly planned). Lunar Gateway)

The journey back to the moon is approaching When interested in resolving Mars is growing. Gravity is a major obstacle to long-term survival in these bodies. The proposal from Kyoto University and Kazima Corporation is exciting and promising, but it’s not something we should expect anytime soon.
