Japan is all set to deliver the future at our doorstep by making space travel accessible with its new endeavour Hexatrack. Plans to construct a man-made space colony with bullet trains that connect Earth, the Moon, and Mars have been unveiled by researchers at Kyoto University working in collaboration Kajima Construction.
Although the Japanese are skilled in many areas, railway construction is one they have mastered. The nation definitely has its trains under control, as it is home to the fastest train in the world and has a network of incredibly effective, high-speed bullet trains. It is now prepared to use its knowledge to send people to the Moon and even Mars.
They even have well-thought-out plans to build a glass habitat structure that replicates Earth’s gravity, geography, and environment so that we can live there.
We outline the detailed plans that academics from Kyoto University in Japan intend to carry out in partnership with Kajima Construction in order to revolutionise space travel below.
While nations like the United States and the United Arab Emirates have actively sought to encourage human migration to Mars, Japan made the decision that it wanted to approach things a bit differently. And that is how the concept of space trains was developed.
In order to lessen the impacts of extended exposure to low gravity, Japanese researchers have created a proposal for an interplanetary transportation system called the “Hexatrack” that maintains a gravity of 1G throughout the long-distance flight.
The “Hexacapsules,” which are simply hexagon-shaped capsules with a moving gadget in the middle, will also be on board the trains.
The Moon and Mars will be connected by a larger capsule with a 30-meter radius, while the Earth and Moon will be connected by a smaller capsule with a 15-meter radius. And to keep itself afloat, this enormous capsule probably will make use of the same electromagnetic technology that Germany’s and China’s Maglev trains use.
Lunar Station, a gateway satellite will be used by the lunar station. The Mars Station will be situated on the Martian satellite Phobos and go by the name of Mars Station. According to the Human Spaceology Centre, Terra Station, the Earth station that would replace the ISS, will be called Terra Station
