The Future of Space

  1. 1. THE FUTURE OF SPACE Use of lunar lava tubes for human habitation Refuelling of fusion-powered craft with water from comets More humans in space than on Earth Accidental destruction of an exo-planet Fake Moons (illumination satellites) Dark matter harvesting for propulsion purposes Rearrangement of constellations to send message to a future intelligence Dark energy engines (warp-drive) Worm-hole travel to shorten space journeys Interstellar pit stops & ‘shipyards’ Verification of panspermia hypothesis Proof that the Universe is a simulation Terra-forming exoplanets with bacteria First human never to breathe Earth’s air Space cities with pseudo-gravity & circadian rhythm simulation Mass emigration of climate refugees into space Asteroid mining for minerals & waterFirst hamburger grown in space Nuclear blast propulsion Reactionless drive Dyson sphere around the Sun to harvest energy Fostering collisions between dead stars to create energy Propulsion systems allow for relocation of planets Discovery of AI-controlled data-farms on distant planet Discovery of AI ‘lifeform’ in space Space mirrors to reduce global warming on Earth Beaming space solar power to Earth using lasers Peak space junk limits launch of satellites from Earth Space junk removal using 2-D space dumpsters 1-gram laser sailing nano-craft Genetic engineering of space colonists for increased resilience CREDITS Created to boldly go where no infographic has gone before by Roberto Trotta and Richard Watson at Imperial College London.
