While NASA warns of another five space rocks towards Earth, a Finnish astrophysicist is proposing a human colonization of the asteroid belt within the next 15 years.
As Earth is out of a month of 2021, NASA has released a brief description, advising that five more asteroids that are between 25 and 100 meters (82 and 98 feet) in diameter are the first of the month. Are close to rise.
On Tuesday, the 20-meter asteroid 2021 BD3, with a diameter of about half the height of the Arc de Triomphe, will pass the planet at a safe distance of 3.9 million km (3.9 million mi). A short time later, an object called 2021 AL, measured 40 meters in diameter or end-to-end for about five London buses, will fill 4.1 million km past.

Next, on Thursday 28 January, will be the 40-meter Space Rock 2021 BZ, which shoots past 2.1 million km.
To round out a rocky start to the year, on 29 January, the asteroid 2021 AG7, which may be 100 meters in diameter or the same size as London’s Big Ben, and 30 meters 2021 AF7 4.2 million km to Earth. And 6.8 million km respectively.
Meanwhile, a forward-thinking astrophysicist proposes that, instead of asteroids coming to us, humans should colonize the asteroid belt, as much as 15 years.
An astrophysicist at the Finnish Meteorological Institute of Helsinki, Drs. Pakka Januhen has proposed the creation of habitable “mega-satellites” on the dwarf planet Cerebits, about 523 million kilometers from Earth, between the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

As directly connected to some modern science fiction series, these disc-shaped settlements have been joined by powerful magnets, which will boast thousands of cylindrical structures, which can house a total of 50,000 people, slowing down floating cities. Rotating at speed will benefit from artificial gravity.
Janunen has also proposed space mining from Ceres, using a space lift to move resources back to the pod and possibly back to Earth for processing, to establish the economy and make colonization profitable and sustainable. Have to go.
