European Space Agency Starts Hibernation Studies On Space Travel
The European Space Agency (ESA) has begun its work to introduce astronauts to future hybridization in future Mars missions. According to research, hybridization can reduce the total mass of the spacecraft and human needs by a third.
In many science fiction films, we see astronauts dormant over long distances in space. The European Space Agency (ESA) has begun to work to keep this concept alive in films. The agency aims to hybridize astronauts who travel through space.
ESA wants to use hybridization in manned space missions that will be part of the Future Technology Advisory Panel in the future. Even a research group was established for this purpose. The agency also explores and takes into account many different hybridization efforts.
The space agency looks at other studies and technologies, but also explores how this technology will impact the task. The Mars task, which consists of a team of six people, is considered for this task. As part of this theoretical mission, the team will travel to Mars and return to our planet five years later.
Robin Biesbroek, who works at the Simultaneous Design Facility of the European Space Agency, made a statement about the hybridization work. Robin, spacecraft architecture to adjust, provide logistics, to protect against radiation, fuel consumption and general task design, they said.
Robin Biesbroek continued his explanation of how an astronaut team could best get into hybridization and what they could do in case of emergency. In addition, how human safety is ensured and even how psychological effects of hibernation will be included in these studies.
After all these works, ESA drew up a draft of this living space and prepared a road map to get people to hybridize on their way to Mars in 20 years. According to the team’s work, the use of hybridization in the tasks helps to reduce the total mass of the vehicle by one third.
Hibernation also reduces the need for food and water needs outside the vehicle mass. Each astronaut on the spaceship will now have one soft capsule instead of a separate living space. These capsules can be transformed into a cabinet at any time when the astronaut wakes up.
