Chiaki Mukai, the first female astronaut, has set up the new "Space Colony Research Science Center" as part of the Tokyo University of Science to answer the biggest questions of humanity: Can we be in space Life? Under the direction of Japan's Mukai, a team of 30 researchers has set up new high-tech laboratories to find answers and technologies that will keep people on the Moon and Mars alive.
She completed two missions to the ISS for 500 hours in space and currently her age is 66 years. She said that the earth is too small. She referred to the entrepreneur Elon Musk, who wanted to launch commercial projects into space. Musk has devised his plans to send tourists to visit the room and around the moon, as well as to colonize the red planet. On the other hand, she also cited US President Donald Trump, who has asked NASA to focus on missions to the Moon and the Red Planet.
Last year in December, Trump asked the US Space Agency to set up a lunar base, the first step and a stop for future missions to Mars. Mukai said scientists could build a lunar base as early as 2030.
Mukai and her team of 30 researchers work with different technologies that help people live on the Moon and on Mars. One such technology is a food production system that uses liquid plasma generated by passing high voltage electricity through a saline solution. This would reduce the formation of algae in water as the plants grow. The experiments performed by simulating the technique showed that results were obtained with the production of potatoes using the system.
Another important development that is being done is the generation of electricity in the space colony. The team has successfully created tiny thermoelectric sensors that match the size of the iPod Nano used to generate electricity using heat flux that is available in large quantities.
When talking about the temperature in outer space, that can be dramatic change through the day and night. The temperature within the space colony is set to room temperature, but the temperature outside the colony would be 1
Another major breakthrough will be to discover the incoming space debris, as there are at least 29,000 objects over four inches in size, possibly destroying the space colony and its colonists. Mukai said the department is working on technologies that can help people live in space and solve most of the problems on Earth themselves. For example, the technology of growing non-soil food, which is called hydroponic technology, can be used to grow food in regions without natural minerals and resources such as sub-Saharan Africa.
Mukai, who has been in space twice, said she would love to go back to space for the third time. Her age is out of the question when she pointed to a 77-year-old US astronaut John Glenn, who made it into space at this age. She strives to have a colony on the moon during her lifetime.
