Space technology, the field that revolves around the access and repossession of objects or life forms from space, is advancing at a rapid pace. If you want to get a clear picture of what future space technology is going to offer us, you have to take a quick look at the following five great aspects of it.
Zero-Gravity Trips and More
The interesting and unique affair of space tourism will commence with multiple journeys into Low Earth Orbit or LEO. It will be few minutes’ trips in zero gravity, and space tourists will be allowed to click pictures. However, with the fast evolution of the technology, help of government incentives, and multiple private ventures, the future space tourism will take tourists to the Moon very shortly.
Space Sports and Adventures
Apart from enjoying a few minutes in space and taking pictures, tourists will also be able to take pleasure in space sports as well as other space adventures. According to various space tourism companies, they have already started thinking ahead about it. Tourists will be provided with gym equipment, racquetball, virtual swimming arrangements, etc. within the space hotels. Different types of space adventures will include space photo tourism, private space walking, asteroid walking, space “sky diving”, rock climbing in Moon, space skiing on the Moon, and so on.
Unique Space plane Racing
‘Rocket racing’ is another rising field that space technology has been trying to focus on. Based on this idea, scientists are trying to launch exclusive ‘spaceplane racing’. Just as rocket racing is held at high altitudes, these drag races and ‘NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) in space’ sort of contests will be held in Low Earth Orbit and outside it. It is quite predictable that these efforts would result into spending of additional dollars in other space ventures.
Latest Automated Technologies
Scientists have already deployed the usage of highly developed automated or programmed rovers. However, researches have still been going on for its continuation, advancement and acceleration. ‘Eyes in the sky’ is another great aspect of this attempt, and engineers are designing highly developed unmanned spacecrafts for this purpose. These spacecrafts are equipped with high-end cameras, complex telescopes, and several other devices that are helpful for both military and scientific objectives.
Robotics Combined with Computing
Robotics in space will move ahead rapidly coupled with future computer technologies. These upcoming computer technology trends include ‘cloud computing’ as well as many other up-to-the-minute software and hardware interfaces. Robotics will be paired with the future medical technology. ‘Cyborg’ with mechanized limbs, eyes, and other parts are already present there, and the development will simply go on.
In summary, future space technology will come up as one of the most interesting fields to explore.
