The latest scientific plan of the European Space Agency is to build a “moon village“. The thin atmosphere of the moon provides a better space observation perspective and can establish a perfect observation platform for the next generation of telescopes. Currently, the Hubble Telescope has entered an “advanced age”, and the European Space Agency The agency plans to launch the first lunar reconnaissance vehicle in 2018 and send the first batch of construction personnel to the lunar surface as early as 2024.
Astronauts experience “hibernation”
In order to prevent astronauts from suffering from cabin fever in remote space environments, scientists have proposed that in order for astronauts to better adapt to long-term space travel, they should enter “hibernation” like bears. Of course, humans will face many problems when hibernating, so scientists are considering introducing bear-like ecological technology.
If a spacecraft encounters a collision with a tiny object while traveling at ultra-high speed in space, a huge hole will be created. Currently, NASA has recently designed a self-healing material that can quickly restore damaged parts within two seconds. Spacecraft built using this material will fly safer in the space environment.
Foldable Mars reconnaissance aircraft
In order to assess the conditions on land through the Martian atmosphere, scientists have recently developed the “Mars Airborne Environment Survey (ARES)”. This independently powered aircraft can reach the Martian atmosphere through a protective deceleration parachute, and then unfolds from the folded mode to be able to fly on Mars. Atmospheric survey flights. Solar panels provide continuous power, eliminating the need for the Mars reconnaissance vehicle to land on the surface.
NASA sports car rover
NASA has designed a device called the Modular Robotic Rover (MRV). According to experts, this high-speed rover can drive on ice. It can also be operated by remote control, and the maximum driving speed is 64 kilometers per hour. Its peculiar “e-corner” system allows astronauts to perform all kinds of hilarious maneuvers, including zero-degree turns and one-sided driving.
Hedgehog Comet Jumper
With the recent landing of the Philae probe on comet 67P, it has been confirmed that the surface of the comet is very delicate and complex. NASA has recently developed a small probe, the “Hedgehog Comet Jumper”, which can jump and roll in low gravity conditions. The device’s raised structure not only protects the delicate scientific equipment housed within it, but also acts as a “foot,” controlling its movement across the comet’s surface using an internal speed wheel.
