The real way to reach other stars is found


The international group of scientists defined the characteristics of "the ship of generations" necessary for implementation of successful interstellar flight. According to experts, construction of a similar starprobe vehicle was more realistic idea, than was considered earlier. The Science Alert edition reports about it. "The ship of generations" call hypothetical type of the spaceship for interstellar travel whose speed is much less than the speed of light. Such ship will reach the system of Alpha Tsentavra who is settling down in 4.37 light years for several thousands of years. It has to be self-sufficient and have a huge number of the resources necessary for maintenance of life of many generations of people on the board. Researchers used the software of HERITAGE in which the Monte Carlo method consisting in generation of a set of accidental scenarios is realized. It turned out that the travel to other star system will require the crew consisting at least of 98 people considerably to reduce risk of genetic disorders at the subsequent generations. Materials on teme00:03 — on February 7 Strange teloucheny believes that found the ship of newcomers in space. Laugh at it, but it not sdayetsyapr it the ship has to be supplied by all necessary for cultivation of own food. However from it and also the starprobe vehicle size depends on other parameters, including the number of crew and future generations. Scientists estimated how many calories will be consumed by the ship, proceeding from age, weight, growth, speed of metabolism and other medical indications. The crew from 500 people living on the balanced diet needs farmlands of 0.45 of square kilometer. Cultural plants have to be grown up with use aeroponik (process of cultivation of plants in the air environment) and traditional agriculture. Taking into account it the ship has to represent the rotating cylinder (for creation of artificial gravitation) with a radius of 224 meters and 320 meters long. However because of existence of other components, including engines, fuel compartments and electric generators, the minimum size of a starprobe vehicle will double. However, these estimates do not include yet water supplies which have to be replenished constantly. "The film of day" is more than important news in Telegram channel. Subscribe!
