If you are getting sick and tired of the Earth, you may not need to wait longer for a trip off-planet. A recently published study by Finnish astrophysicist Pika Janhune states that it would be possible for a dwarf planet to dispose of a megacity floating on Ceres, which floats in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Not only did Janunen formulate his plan for how a megacity could be built, but he suggests that it could start taking shape in the next decade and a half.
According to the journal entry (via) New york post), Ceres was chosen because of his similar gravitational properties, even though he lives about 325 miles from Earth. In terms of common man, NASA sent space probe Dawn In 2007, and it didn’t come until 2015.
“We choose Ceres as the source body because it is likely to have sufficient nitrogen compared to C-type asteroids,” Janunen wrote. “Nitrogen is an important element because it is essential for the settling atmosphere. We use AA disk geometry for the megasaterial because its symmetry eliminates tidal torque so that reaction wheels are not needed to maintain attitude. The natural sun. The lights illuminate the houses. ” The two planers are inclined at an angle of 45 ° to be assembled on the disk by the mirrors and the parabolic mirrors focus on the desired intensity. “
His plan for Megacity includes a habitation of thousands of cylindrical structures, each hosting 50,000 people. These structures would then be rotated slowly and artificial gravity would be created on the surface of the satellite.
Those who live in megacities, using “space elevators” built in the habitat, will then be able to build structures further to the metals found within Ceres.
The astrophysicist said, “If we compare it with traditional surface settlements the value of the utility of the megasaterial becomes clear. It would be possible to scientifically colonize the surface of Ceres with centrifuge habitats,” the astrophysicist said. “However, then magnetic bearings have to bear the weight of the habitat. The weight is 34 times less than on Earth, but many orders of magnitude higher than the microgravity conditions of megasathematics.”
