Space stations are realistic science fiction By Anglia Student ID : 1227201 Course : BEng Mechanical Engineering (Hons)
IntroductionExistence of the space stations have pushed the life to a verge of excellence,smooth and dynamic science implemented life. From medicine to industry,transport to communication, entertainment to leisure space stations have emergedfrom pages in books to massive excellence in engineering. This presentation shallbrief you with the space station’s sensible implications in human spaceexploration, ramification of the funds by the research organizations intoeducation & tourism sectors as well as the perspective objective quests into thespace exploration and its effect on the global relations .
Literature Review • Space stations can be traced back to 19th century in a famous science fiction name The Brick Moon (Hale, 1869) some others were Two Planet (1971), The conquest of Space (Ley, 1949), 2001: A Space Odessy (Clarke, 1968).• The very first space station that was made was by the Russian Salyuts (former USSR ) and simultaneously the space stations evolved to the present International space station. Salyuts served to be the base for the space explorations. On the other side the US Skylab (1973 - 1979) was a major achievement for the new generation of space stations with multiple facilities.• MIR proved to be the glory days of the Russian space inhabitancy. The longest crewed space station and the inspiration of the ISS.• Billions of funds have been used for their constructions which has not only proved the betterment of the human life, research in several fields, education and tourism but also a better global political stability.•
Research Methodology The research focuses on the sustainable approach to the human space exploration. The research was conducted in two parts. Fundamental sources used data & reports related to the space science explorations available on the officially followed by the Subordinate sources in analysing the use of the data & reports of the fundamental sources by media and understanding of the people. In a nut of both the researches it was found that it cost billions (approx. $5.226 billion) to construct the International Space station by the US space exploration firm NASA. To subsidy the cost of building ISS, the US opened its arms with other countries to participate in Space Station development. This helped in the political stability and reuniting different countries. *ESA, NASA, JAXA, ROSCOSMOS & CSA were many such organization which participated in the massive engineering marvel. Improvement of astronaut foods and space inhabitancy was a prior factor which could be seen with the evolution from Salyuts to ISS. When asked to group of the civilians (15 ) it was found that people were very happy to know the space station’s construction for the better humanity. They supported the fact that huge amount of money was spend though was in mankind favour. On an article in BBC it was mentioned that does enormous investments lead to better science, to which survey people agreed.
Evaluation Space stations have tamed the time and science which has unfolded the dimensions of space which remained hidden as treasures in the past. Started with just a mere idea of space knowledge, space stations have been used as platform for every space missions and have increased the global commitment for a secure and bright future. From daily requirements in scheduled life or industrial revolution to education and research space stations have played and are playing an important role in the amelioration of the human existence on Earth. One of the survey person wanted to research on power less satellite navigation (Dr. Habtom) while some wanted to excel in the space suits for civil tourism. There is no doubt that the Space stations and the participating organizations have gifted the people a secure and vowed life for exemplary growth. It is a right proverb said “What ever you imagine is real”(Pablo Picasso). Review of space station from the people not only reflects their keen interest in space stations but also echoes the need for better sustainable future which is very clear from the surveys and the interviews conducted.
Common examples of spacestation roles in everyday life. In teleconferencing. In weather forecasting. In Wireless articulation. In medicine & industry R&D. In automotive industry. In construction engineering.
Conclusion• It is revealed that the space stations not only contribute colossal information in the field of the space science and research but also in the education, tourism and global political stability. From schedule life weather reports, news to video conferencing on cisco, everything has been a tribute of the satellite and space station’s research activities.• There is no ambiguity that space stations have emerged from a mind and orbiting around Earth in the cumbrous space. Space stations are living science fiction.
