If Japan’s technology is to be believed, something that seems like it belongs in a sci-fi movie might become a reality. In a short while, trains will allow people to travel between worlds. As per the sources, we came to know that Japan has set forward intentions to send people to the Moon and Mars.
To make us feel at home, Japan has created plans to construct a glass habitat building that will mimic Earth’s gravity, atmosphere, and geography. The Weather Channel said that researchers from Kyoto University in Japan are working on this innovative idea alongside Kajima Construction. As per the sources, in a news conference last week, the researchers made this announcement.
Linking Earth to Moon and Mars
Hexatrack is the name of the interplanetary transportation technology developed by Japanese scientists. For long-distance travel, Hexatrack would maintain a gravity of 1G to mitigate the consequences of prolonged low gravity exposure. The “Hexacapsules,” hexagonal-shaped capsules with a moving mechanism in the center, will be another feature of the trains.
The Japanese researchers’ plan calls for a miniature spacecraft with a 15-meter radius to connect Earth and the Moon. It will take a capsule with a 30-meter radius to travel between the moon and Mars. The capsule will now use the same electromagnetic technology as China’s and Germany’s Maglev trains.
The train station on Mars will be known as Mars Station, whereas the station on the moon will use a gateway satellite and go by the name Lunar Station. It will be located on Phobos, a satellite of Mars.
The Human Spaceology Centre claims that the Earth station, to be known as Terra Station, will replace the International Space Station (ISS). According to Mashable India, the space train, also known as Space Express, would run on a normal gauge track.
Looks like a Champagne Flute
The vast majority of the space transportation infrastructure ignores the value of terrestrial natural wealth. But scientists at Kyoto University intend to construct a home that will resemble the amenities on Earth.
The researchers want to create a constricted dwelling structure that resembles a champagne flute, complete with public transportation, green spaces, and water features. The building will be referred to as “The Glass.”
Since low gravity might influence reproduction, it is a serious issue. The university’s researchers work to allay this worry. The building will employ the centrifugal force produced by the rotation of the moon and Mars in orbit to generate artificial gravity that is capable of producing gravity that would be equivalent to Earth’s environment.
Japan and Space Habitation
According to Japan’s The Asahi Shimbun, it could take a century for the idea to materialize. By 2050, though, scientists hope to construct a more straightforward copy of the Marsglass and Lunaglass.
According to the Director of SIC Manned Cosmology Research Center and Graduate School of Advanced Integrated Studies at Kyoto University, Yosuke Yamashiki, the plans Japan has for space habitation are essential for assuring that human space colonization will take place in the future.
The three pillars we offer this time are key technologies that are not in other countries’ development plans but are necessary to guarantee the implementation of human space colonization in the future, he continued, adding that this is the result of conversations over the previous few years.
