  1. 1. Space Options Where to in the future?
  2. 2. Habitation on Mars <ul><li>Scientists have been working on the creation of bricks developed to deflect cosmic radiation for the purpose of building houses on Mars </li></ul><ul><li>They have been made out of chemical polyethylene which contains a high amount of hydrogen ( a very light gas) </li></ul><ul><li>While scientists at the College of William and Mary thought liquid hydrogen was the best shield against radiation, the reason the scientists didn’t use liquid hydrogen was because as Richard Kiefer said “It was a little impractical to transport” </li></ul>
  3. 3. So why might we have to move? <ul><li>Pollution issues </li></ul><ul><li>Population explosion (old age) </li></ul><ul><li>Natural disasters (e.g. volcanoes) </li></ul><ul><li>Resources needed for survival (water, food) </li></ul><ul><li>Scientific exploration - space </li></ul><ul><li>Finding cost effective living </li></ul>
  4. 4. Where to next? <ul><li>Who knows? </li></ul><ul><li>If we’re going to be going to Mars, what will we do when we get there? </li></ul><ul><li>Is it really possible to live on Mars? </li></ul><ul><li>Are we really going to live on Mars or is it more likely that human life will exist in space cities? </li></ul>
  5. 5. Stephen Hawking <ul><li>Physicist Stephen Hawking believes that “ In the future it is possible that we will need to move to another planet in order to survive.” </li></ul><ul><li>He said that Earth could be destroyed by a nuclear disaster or an asteroid hitting the planet. </li></ul><ul><li>Stephen Hawking says “If we find somewhere somewhere suitable to live, then the human race will survive.” </li></ul><ul><li>He says “Modern chemical rockets are not any good to take to another Earth-like planet, because it could take 50,000 years.” That is not a human option. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Stephen Hawking suggests that the best solution would be to live in space cities. This is one of his designs. Visit this site for more information: http://school. discoveryeducation . com/schooladventures/spacestation/together .html </li></ul>
  7. 7. This is my Space-House, designed to exist within a futuristic Space-City Storage Cylinders Garage Atrium Hydroponic Garden Security Check
  8. 8. How my Space-House Works <ul><li>The space-house exists within the space city </li></ul><ul><li>The security check room is designed to ensure that unknown people are not admitted to the space-house without permission </li></ul><ul><li>There are five storage spaces located close to the entry point: Brown - disposal, Red -files, Green - food items and Blue -clothing </li></ul><ul><li>Two probes extend and retract. These arms are programmed to locate stored material </li></ul><ul><li>The internal stairs lead up to a generator spire. Two spires rise up from each house and allow for the transfer of energy from the central space-city system </li></ul><ul><li>The hover-car and hover-bikes transport the occupants around the space-city use up to date fuel (refer diagram) </li></ul>
  9. 9. Considerations with regard to living in a Space-City <ul><li>The cost for materials </li></ul><ul><li>How we would feed a population in space </li></ul><ul><li>Who would be selected to live in the Space-City and what would the criteria look like </li></ul><ul><li>How would you fuel the Space-City </li></ul><ul><li>What could go wrong? </li></ul><ul><li>How would communities be grouped? </li></ul><ul><li>How would we communicate between Space-Cities </li></ul><ul><li>Could we travel between them? </li></ul>
  10. 10. Credits <ul><li>Compiled and written by Cathal Dickson </li></ul><ul><li>Images provided by Google </li></ul><ul><li>Special thanks for the help from: </li></ul><ul><li>Ms Hunter </li></ul><ul><li>Daniel Mathers </li></ul><ul><li>Special Thanks To NASA And Google </li></ul>
