NASA Wants to Make a Magnetic Force Field & a Deep Sleep Chamber For Astronauts on Mars Video

A self-assembling space locale, a deep sleep chamber to shuttle astronauts on long journeys, and a defensive magnetic force field are the newest projects NASA is embarking on.
NASA’s Innovative higher Concept (NIAC) Program is responsible for support futuristic space concepts that could, as NASA puts it, “change the possible.” It’s not enough to just be a cool concept, though—projects are as well screened for technical plausibility. In its newest round of funding, NIAC’s Phase II program has chosen eight projects to move ahead. Among the majority promising ones are three focusing on how to build livable future habitats in space.
To travel further into space, it would be helpful to have outposts to stop at down the way. These early phase Growth-Adapted Tensegrity Structures would seed selected outpost points with building robots that could not only create the initial rotating space outposts, but could adapt them for future requests as well. The current project will start by looking at the feasibility of setting one up outside of the lunar orbit, but researchers add that, if winning, these structures could someday be roughly anywhere.

Colonizing Mars will be anything but easy, and one of the main challenges will be hallway on the surface without crashing or burning up. This attractive space shell—aptly called the Magnetoshell—would throw a magnetic field approximately a Mars-bound spacecraft. As it fell through the planet’s atmosphere, researchers hope that the resulting interaction can act approximately as a second set of brakes, slowing down the craft enough that the actual landing protocol would require less fuel. Early designs were focused on putting jointly initial plans for landings on both Mars and Neptune. Currently, researchers intend to look at how a Magnetoshell might work for crewed mission even beyond that, to locations all over the solar system.
 Many of the latest proposals were dedicated to what happens when we get into deep space. But to arrive, you opening have to make the journey—and that could take years. That’s where this deep sleep chamber comes in. It’s not a cryo-sleep chamber, researchers emphasize, at least not yet. Instead, the idea here is to opening build a chamber capable of medically-supporting astronauts who are in a deep sleep.

In adding to these three, you can look at the complete slate of approved NIAC Phase II project right here.
