Japan designs gravity-defying space habitats

It’s a goal on the list of some space companies and it’s meant to be accomplished in relatively short time horizons – whether or not that’s possible, only time will tell. In response to one of the problems of life beyond Earth, Japanese researchers have developed gravity-defying habitats.

Researchers say they are committed to securing a useful blueprint for humans.

Gravity-defying habitats for humans to live on Mars and the Moon

The idea of ​​sending humans to inhabit other planets has already been floated and is supported by several space companies. However, before this becomes a reality, it is crucial to understand how something of this magnitude can be done, taking into account the inhospitable environment of options, such as Marten of Lua.

Considering that gravity is an essential element for the well-being of future inhabitants of space, the researchers of Kyoto Universityin Japan, joined the Kajima Corp. for develop habitats that defy gravity, ensuring the habitability of the Moon and Mars, for example.

There is no such plan in the spatial development plans of other countries. Our plan represents important technologies crucial to ensuring that humans can move through space in the future.

These Yosuke Yamashikidirector of the SIC - Human Spaceology Center of Kyoto University, on July 5.

Number Press release, the research team noted that "without gravity, mammals might not be able to reproduce and their babies might not develop well." Additionally, he explained that if "a person grew up in an environment of zero or low gravity, their body would change such that they would not be able to stand on land."

As the idea of ​​living in space becomes more realistic, the issue of low gravity, which I intuitively became aware of as a child, is one we need to overcome.

Explained Takuya Ono, associate professor on the project at the center and senior researcher at Kajima.

In addition to gravity, the researchers are also considering a space train, which would work in the same way as those on Earth, in turn generating artificial gravity. This transport would not be limited to a single planet, but could stop at stations created on Earth, Mars and Lua. In other words, researchers are designing a kind of interplanetary train...

Gravity in space… is it possible?

Researchers from Kyoto University and Kajima Corp. think so, by the centrifugal force created by the rotational movements. In a video released by the team, habitats can be seen built perpendicularly and placed in a sphere. Formerly surrounded by water and green spaces, they are becoming ideal environments for sheltering humans.

While they know that it will be possible to put their plans into practice, the researchers are aware that these very futuristic plans will only materialize in the 22nd century.
