The European Space Agency has published a very intriguing footage on its YouTube channel. It was created in cooperation with one of the world’s most famous architectural companies, namely Skidmore, Owings & Merril. Its specialists created the design of the first base on the Silver Globe.
Scientists emphasize that this is not another fantasy of space exploration enthusiasts. The project will use all the knowledge about the natural satellite of our planet, as well as the latest technologies that will be helpful in the construction of objects on foreign worlds.
The concept can be seen at the International Architecture Biennale in Venice until November 21 this year. If you do not go there during this time, you have the opportunity to see the project on video now. Life Beyond Earth, as it is called, is a structure of several objects connected to each other in order not only to protect astronauts against extreme surface conditions, but also to increase the usable area.
Importantly, the architects thought about the use of inflatable modules. Recently, they have made a real sensation in the world of the space industry. NASA is even planning to build a second space station with just such elements. It turns out that it can be no different in the case of bases on the Moon or even Mars.
The return to the Silver Globe is expected in 2024. Perhaps SpaceX will be able to do this a year faster than NASA. Either way, we are just one step away from laying the foundations for the realization of the great dreams of an interplanetary civilization.
