The European space Agency started developing the technology of sleep for mission to Mars

— this is real!

Not long ago, representatives of the European space Agency (European Space Agency) began work on two projects intended for long-term space travel. These projects will be implemented in the framework of the ESA Concurrent Design Facility, which aims to carry out research related to the possibility of using hibernate mode (roughly, a deep sleep with slowing of physiological functions) of astronauts during space missions. In particular, during the and potentially other planets of the Solar system and perhaps beyond.

How to reach the Mars?

The engineers of the European space Agency propose to use for this hibernation capsules. Besides, we have also presented the concepts of the cabins and crew quarters of a spacecraft is designed to perform long flights. Using even the most advanced to date, models of ships and engines, a flight to Mars will take several months. And it is even for trained professionals — a great stress not only from the point of view of the nervous system, in fact to do in the open space nothing but a closed room is not the best way affect the emotional state. But from the point of view of physiology, after all this time you need to obtain nutrients and to cope with physiological needs.

The solution to this situation is has long been proposed by science fiction hibernation mode, in which a person does not need large free space, and its need for food is reduced to a minimum. The use of hibernate allows you to use for long-distance flights spacecraft smaller and will require less fuel. — .

In the new project space Agency should be an individual capsules, which will be all members of the crew during the flight. Also, there tiny cabins for the waking crew, as someone has to monitor the vehicle status and health of the sleeping astronauts. And would you like to go to Mars? Write about it in our .

According to the draft, hibernation capsules have a soft inner shell, which is obscured while in her man. In addition, the capsules have a protection system . And they can also be used as a bed for «normal» version sleep after the pioneers get to the red Planet. It is worth noting also that for such a long period «inaction» a certain amount of muscle and bone mass atrophy. As the researchers claim, according to preliminary calculations, the rehabilitation period after waking up should be around 21 days.

the project of the premises of the spacecraft

To maintain the spacecraft in operational condition will be used an automatic system based on artificial intelligence, but details about them are not disclosed. In addition, representatives of European Space Agency noted that those projects — just the beginning. And until they are fully completed, will pass not one decade. In this regard, look too optimistic projections of NASA regarding the landing on Mars in 2030-ies. On the other hand, who knows what technology is now in «store» Americans? Perhaps they are ahead of what is prepared in the European Space Agency.
