Research on system design of spacecolonies and space implementation of related technologies

Technologies in a wide range of fields are necessary to maintain the closed environment, in order to turn the concept of space colonies into reality. It is inefficient and impractical to develop the underlying technologies so that they can only be used in space. Meanwhile, we have developed high-performance space equipment by installing ground-based civilian technology. The team aims to enable space colonies by utilizing such technology in space and to turn the technology now being studied mainly for use on Earth into a technique that can be used in space.
