Scientists are Planning to build a space station inside an asteroid
The problem in building a space station inside an asteroid
Many space wants to mine the far-sighted asteroids. But drilling in microbiology is difficult because, by applying force on the asteroid, you will get rid of it.
According to the New Scientist, this is inspired by a distant idea from scientists of the University of Vienna: To transform an asteroid into a space station and mining it from the inside out.
According to the research of Viennese scientists, the best type of asteroid will be made of solid rock to make inside space station inside and rotate several times per minute, which was published in the prepaid server ArXiv in December. It is an idea that it will provide adequate centrifugal force to remove the space miners from the asteroid from the center.
"If we find an ankle that is stable enough, then we may not need these aluminum walls or anything, you may be able to use the entire asteroid as a space station," One of the new scientist Thomas Mendal, who worked on the scientists research
someday maybe we can make
The questions remain. Does the tunnel to build a station inside an asteroid will weaken the fact that the spinning space rock separates itself? Will this stop the rotation of the miners completely as the investigation and excavation? And if it is so hard to drill from an outside asteroid, will it not be hollow in the first place, does it create problems?
"The boundary between science and science fiction is like blurry," Mandal told the New Scientist. "My feeling of the intestine is that it will be at least 20 years before any asteroids are mined, let alone this happen."
