  • [Top Story]Plants grown on Moon for first time paving way for lunar base01/16 10:10

    Plants have sprouted on the Moon for the first time in a mini biosphere paving the way for bases which produce their own food and air. Pictures of the first tiny green shoots of cotton were released by researchers at the Advanced Technology Research Institute at Chongqing University who are running the experiment on board the Chang'e-4 lunar lander. The Chinese space agency spacecraft became the first to make a soft landing on the far side of the Moon earlier this month. Plants and flowers have been grown on board the International Space Station (ISS), and Chinese 'taikonauts' grew rice in China's Tiangong-2 space lab.

The success could mean that an Eden Project-style base, which would completely sustain itself, could be constructed on the Moon, with plants providing oxygen and food for astronauts. "This is the first time humans have done biological growth experiments on the lunar surface," said Xie Gengxin, who led the design of the experiment. “We have given consideration to future survival in space. Learning about these plants' growth in a low-gravity environment would allow us to lay the foundation for our future establishment of space base." The breakthrough paces the way for an Eden-project like structures on the Moon which produce their own air and food Credit: Christopher Jones  The 'mini lunar biosphere' experiment is a seven inch (18cm) metal bucket which holds air, water and soil and a special nutrient solution. A small tube directs natural sunlight into the tin to help the plants and potato seeds grow. Although known figuratively as the 'dark side' as it is unseen, the far side of the Moon receives almost equal sunlight to the near side, and the sky only seems dark because there is no atmosphere to diffract the Sun’s rays. The first sprouts were spotted emerging through a lattice like structure and published by China’s People’s Daily newspaper saying it marked 'the completion of humankind's first biological experiment on the Moon'. Potato seeds and arabidopsis—a small flowering plant belonging to the mustard family - were also planted in the bucket, but haven’t been seen so far, the university said. The biosphere also contains silkworms in cocoons, and scientists are hoping they will hatch once the plants start producing enough oxygen for the little insects to wake up. The silkworms will then create carbon dioxide and produce waste that will allow the plants to continue flourishing, Chinese scientists say.

Chang'e-4 is also equipped with instruments developed by scientists from Sweden, Germany and China to study the lunar environment, cosmic radiation and the interaction between solar wind and the Moon's surface. The lander also released a rover, dubbed Yutu-2 (Jade Rabbit), that will perform experiments in the Von Karman Crater, which will give clues about the formation of the Solar System. The China National Space Administration said four more lunar missions are planned, confirming the launch of a probe by the end of the year to bring back samples from the moon. China is hoping to land a human on the Moon by 2030 and is using the Chang'e missions to establish satellite communications networks for future base.......Search More News

  • [World News]Elon Musk shows off SpaceX's Tintin inspired 'Starship'01/13 09:50

    It may look like something straight out of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century or Tintin's Destination Moon but, according to Elon Musk, the pictures he tweeted of his latest SpaceX creation are very much real. Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and electric car-maker Tesla, revealed that assembly of the 'Starship Hopper' test-flight rocket was complete and that the pictures of the shimmering, stainless steel construction were 'not a rendering'. The Tintin comparison is not an accident. In September of last year, SpaceX revealed the new design of the 'Big Falcon Rocket', now simply know as 'Starship', saying "I love the Tintin rocket design, so I kind of wanted to bias it towards that." "If in doubt," Musk added. "Go with Tintin." True to his word, the 120-foot-tall hopper is a tubular, pointy-topped rocket with three rear 'fins' that serve as landing pads. It is an important building block of the controversial entrepreneur's grand plan to land on and eventually colonise Mars, but this version of the Starship Hopper is not yet ready for space flight. "This is for suborbital VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) tests," Musk tweeted. "Orbital version is taller, has thicker skins (won’t wrinkle) & a smoothly curving nose section." Elon Musk tweeted a picture of the stainless steel, pointy topped rocket saying it was not a rendering The suborbital tests will be similar to SpaceX's Grasshopper program, in which the Starship hopper will take off and look to hover 5km above the ground before being brought back down to land. The 'Raptor' engines of the hopper are expected to be test-fired next month, while Musk is hoping for its first test-flights in March or April. SpaceX will be hoping the tests will be more successful than its last launch in December, in which a technical glitch saw it botch a ground landing for the first time. Its payload of Christmas dinner for the crew of the International Space Station still successfully made it into orbit, however. The refuellable, three-part Starship Hopper was assembled at a SpaceX factory near the Boca Chica village in south Texas. Musk has been tweeting excitedly about the construction of the hopper since before Christmas, telling his followers that the rocket is constructed from stainless steel. Musk said that the material is better at both extremely hot and cold temperatures than carbon fiber and will need less shielding. The science-fiction silver is more than just for show, according to Musk, as the exterior will get too hot for paint.  As a result, the stainless mirror finish will 'look like liquid silver'. Work at the Boca Chica location seemed to accelerate with Musk's presence, with pictures showing engineers working overnight to complete construction on the hopper.  The completed rocket was also caught on camera by Evelyn Janeidy Arevalo, a rocket and astronomy enthusiast, whose video of the Starship Hopper was retweeted by Musk. SpaceX first Starship hopper under Texas Boca Chica Beach's cloudy sky.@elonmusk#Starship#SpaceXpic.twitter.com/hVg5Ken7Vp— Evelyn Janeidy Arevalo (@JaneidyEve) January 10, 2019 The orbital version of the Hopper will be used with SpaceX's 'Super Heavy' booster to make the complete Starship. Musk has said that an orbital version of the hopper will be ready by June, while the Super Heavy could make its first test flight later this year. SpaceX's aim is to have its first Mars mission take flight by 2022. SpaceX is also set to take Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa and a group of artists to the moon as early as 2023 in Starship's first passenger flight. The reveal of the Starship Hopper kicks off an important year for SpaceX. The $25bn rated company is set to launch its first manned flight in June this year, taking a crew of NASA astronauts to the International Space Station.......Search More News
