SPACE ELEVATOR – FUTURE OF SPACE TRAVEL

Scientists Propose Spaceline Space Elevator to Transport Astronauts from Earth’s Orbit to the Moon Techblog 8/29/19

INDEX

Ever wondered? Travelling to space with your family?Fantasies?Boarding an elevator that will take you to space.Well,It will be possible in near future.

A Japanese company had started the plans for a space elevator. Therefore,it would be the most expensive infrastructure ever built.

Engineers of Shizuoka University initially proposed the plans.

Space Elevator @Jose Gutierrez Gutierrez Civit  This gives me a good understanding of how a space elevator would look like from a side view from the ground up.

ADVANTAGES OF SPACE ELEVATOR

It cost 10000$ to transport a pound.On the other hand,Space elevatorr will reduce the cost to 100 folds.

Rockets are heavier increasing fuel consumption.In contrast,this tech is lighter so fuel consumption will be less.

Obayashi corporation announced that in 40 years the space elevator will function.Secondly,it will carry 30 passengers.It will reach the outerspace within 7.5 days.

There will be only 4 components Tether,Anchor,counterweight and climber.Tether acts like a rope and is a tensile structure.Anchor and counterweight will balance the rope.Anchor will be attached in earth.Counterweight in the space station.Climber is a car.

The astronauts can use this car for traveling up and down the tether.In conclusion, it would acts as a connector between space and earth, transporting directly to space station.

CHALLENGES FOR SPACE ELEVATOR

Main problem is tether.It should be light,affordable and more stable.But,no material like this was ever built.

Powering the elevator requires some renewable energy.Because a light weight elevator cannot carry fuel tanks with it.

If elevator fails,no backup plan is there.

Collection of material for building a tether covering a huge distance of 36000 kms.

Rocket debris in space can damage the tether.

SOLUTIONS

Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) Market Research
carbon nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes can serve to make the tether.In addition they are stronger and tough than diamonds!

Using rocket waste debris for the raw material.Experimental tests can take place in Moon.

So no worries, no dangers as there is no gravity.

BIONIC LENS

BIONIC LENS

INDEX

Lens is a window of eye to the world.Our lens is convex lens.The natural lens of our eye.With a normal vision of 6/6.A new piece of tech.It claims to give 3 times better than 20/20 vision.Similarly,more bright and precise vision.

BIONIC LENS- FACTS

Many scientific companies claims for the production of Bionic lens.Publicly not released,test procedures still conducted.Current information tell they are wore like simple contact lens.

While some are placed permanently,accompanied by a painless 8 minute surgery.Similarly,it takes effect in 10 seconds.

Cost estimated to be 3200$ excluding surgery.Lifetime enhancement of eyesight is possible through Bionic lens.Secondly,it promises to give vision to disabled population.

It can also give AR(augmented reality)view.Can connect to games.Gaming now at your eyetip.

Sony inc claims development of bioiic lens.With power to detect voluntary and involuntary eye.

Voluntary eye blinks can open slot for gaming and surfing.

Google lens spectacles were developed previously.This is the advanced tech of that.

Dr. Garth Web of Ocumetics Technology Corp has invented a bionic lens that could totally correct vision in eight minutes.

FUTURE OF BIONIC LENS

3x better than 20/20 Enhanced vision enables zooming.

Highly beneficial for military in combat operations.

Beneficial for surgeons and physicians.Future without blindness.No issues for transplantation.

No pain in eyes.No strain and stress.

Beneficial for IT sector employees.

ISSUES

Terrorists can spread the terror using this tech.

Privacy issues can rise.Hacking of lens can be possible.

So life can be hacked.

Popularization of this tech can lead to cyborg world.
