A Finnish scientist, Dr. Pakke Januhen makes a claim that humans can live on the giant orb floating in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter until 2026. According to the New York Post report, Janhein also predicted that millions of people might inhabit megacities in space within the next 15 years. Janhuen is an astrophysicist at the Finnish Metrological Instruct in Helsinki and he also prepared a “mega-satellite” swim template in a research paper published this month.
The Finnish scientist said that the satellites would be in the vicinity of the dwarf planet Ceres, which is about 325 million miles from Earth, adding that “the inspiration is an agreement with artificial intelligence that allows development beyond Earth’s living area.” Most assumptions about future human settlements revolve around the Moon or Mars, which are closer to Earth. However, Janhane’s proposal differs slightly from the general approach.

How would this be possible?
The Finnish scientist has predicted a disc-shaped habitat with thousands of cylindrical structures, each with more than 50,000 people. In addition, these pods will be attached to powerful magnets and rotated stably to generate artificial gravity. Residents, 15 years from now, will be able to mine resources from Ceres 600 miles below the settlement and return them using a “space lift”, according to Janunen. He further wrote, “If elevators are used in space, it is energetically cheaper to lift materials from Ceres than to process them.”
“Because Ceres has low gravity and rotates at a relatively fast speed, space elevator is possible.” .
This, according to the Finnish scientist, would allow humans to create a more earth-like state than the carbon dioxide-rich atmosphere found in Mars. However, he also acknowledged that an installation in Ceres does not rule out the dangers posed by space asteroids or radiation. Thus, to propose cylindrical mirrors around ‘mega-satellites’ to avoid bombardment.
