Modern mankind is on the verge of colonizing space and transforming into a space civilization with the resources of the solar system, millions of times superior to those on Earth. Having passed to the level of cosmic civilization, humanity will rise to a qualitatively new stage of development, comparable to the transition to the modern level from the medieval one. And it will be able to increase the economic power and living standards of people without restrictions, using the resources of the solar system for this. But cosmic expansion still remains at the stage of experiments, and there is no question of active movement towards the transition to the cosmic level. According to the now accepted opinion, the colonization of space is held back by the high cost and complexity of large space programs, creating almost insurmountable barriers to the transition of industry from the earth to the solar system, but in reality, no one tried to carry out this transition seriously. States declare space exploration, but in practice they are sticking flags for their own prestige. The private traders have an intention to develop practical areas of astronautics, but they are weak organizers, they cannot attract the interest of industry and investors to this process, they cannot involve the power of the world economy in it. The obstacles facing the colonization of the solar system, according to the now accepted scenario, through the gradual expansion of space programs, in the form of high cost and long-term, will not allow space exploration quickly. In addition, the players leading the space industry now,
An alternative project for the development of space expansion, which will be discussed below, assumes to start not with the colonization of space, but with the transformation of humanity into a space civilization within the Earth, “Space transformation”. It is supposed to make a transition to the life and technological structure of a space civilization, to develop a new industry on earth that can quickly and cheaply spread in space, and then proceed to the industrialization of the solar system. The implementation of this project on earth is not hindered by anything, and after the new industrialization there will be no barriers to the colonization of the solar system. Space transformation is the transition of further development into the channel of building a space civilization, which will begin in the near future and will become the main direction of development for the rest of the future.
At the start, space transformation will proceed through a theoretical model of transition into the living and technological space of a cosmic civilization, which serves as an information template for the development of real activities. Which is announced in this publication. Further, it will go through a networked social and business community, organized on the interaction of participants via the Internet. Over time, a world corporation will grow out of network communities, which will become the flagship of humanity’s movement along the cosmic path of development. This path begins now and it is in your hands.
Space expansion, its goals, benefits, and obstacles hindering development.
What is space expansion, what is it for, what benefits will it bring to humanity, what prevents its development and how will it be carried out?
Space expansion is the process of spreading human activity in outer space. Any expansion, including space, presupposes the introduction of new spaces and new resources into the economic circulation, and an increase in the standard of living of the metropolis due to the developed periphery. Economic growth in the metropolis, in turn, causes accelerated progress in all respects, economic, technological, scientific, social, legal, cultural. All together, this gives rise to a new level of civilizational development, in the metropolis, due to the development of new territories and resources.
Any expansion, due to the concentration of resources in the metropolis, leads to the rise of the metropolis to a new level, creates centers for the development of civilization. And over time, this higher level also spreads in the metropolises, becomes common property.
Expansional jerks associated with the expansion of the space under control lead to general civilizational jerks in development. So in ancient times, the trading empire of Greece and the military empire of Rome, led to the rise of the Greco-Roman civilization and formed the foundation of modern European civilization. Later, during the period of the maritime expansion of the European peoples, the rise in living standards in Europe and the greatly increased production of products for sale in the colonies led to the industrial revolution. The industrial revolution has shaped the modern scientific and technological civilization, and raised humanity to a qualitatively new level of development, at which it is now.
What was the standard of living in medieval Europe? It differed little from central Africa. The bulk of the population were peasants, illiterate, powerless, who worked with a hoe in the field and ate what they raised. They had an annual income of several tons of grain and several dozen bags of vegetables.
What is the standard of living in Europe, which has moved to the level of a modern, scientific and technological civilization now? The average income is from one to seven thousand euros per month, the bulk of the work is done by mechanisms, people live in comfortable conditions, use the products of modern technologies. They are protected and free, their life is interesting and meaningful.
If a man of the Middle Ages got into modern times, the level of development achieved now would seem to him a miracle or magic.
Likewise, the colonization of space will lead to an explosive growth of the economy on earth, cause a surge of progress in all areas, and raise humanity to a new level. Which for a person of our time seems like a fantasy.
The main prize of space expansion is the rise of humanity to a qualitatively higher level of development. Rise from the level of a planetary civilization to the level of a cosmic civilization that controls the solar system.
The expansionist breakthroughs of the past were not humane, as they colonized the territory along with the people. The Greek and Roman empires turned tens of millions of people into slaves. During the maritime expansion of Europe, half of the world was plundered and the population of North America was destroyed. But on the other hand, the level of development of European civilization is now becoming a common property, and is spreading throughout the world, at different speeds.
In the upcoming space expansion, lifeless spaces, their mineral resources, and the energy of the sun are subject to colonization. Space will be explored mainly by robots and automata. There will be few people in space, and they will be engaged in intellectual work, mainly in the management, maintenance and repair of complex equipment.
Why is the colonization of space necessary for humanity? Space is a source of resources, almost unlimited compared to what is available on earth. The variety of metals and minerals, the abundance of water on earth, is the result of an asteroid bombardment that took place about four billion years ago. Without the fall of asteroids, the earth would be a desert, its surface would be composed of sand and basalt. But only a tiny fraction of the asteroids fell to the ground. Asteroids are the main source of mineral resources in the solar system, in them the concentration of valuable elements, such as precious metals and rare earth elements, is several times higher than in earth’s deposits. Many asteroids are made entirely of iron. For comparison, one large asteroid “Psyche” contains resources of 10 quintillion dollars, it could make every inhabitant of the earth a billionaire.
Now humanity is developing successfully, the world economy is growing, but there is still a long way to go to general welfare and prosperity. Only about a third of the world’s population have a decent standard of living that allows them to live in their own interests, without needing funds, mainly, these are residents of developed countries and the coast of China. Another third work only to pay for food and housing and have a small surplus, mostly residents of the semi-periphery. And a third lives at an archaic level, on the brink of survival, these are residents of developing countries.
Humanity still remains in the colonial period, the land is divided into metropolises and colonies. The standard of living of the countries of the flagships of development has not spread to the entire planet. To raise the bulk of the population to a decent standard of living, world production must grow at least three times. But the continuation of industrial growth is faced with limiting factors associated mainly with a shortage of global resources and environmental problems.
If world production is tripled, there will be enough resources. If we increase it tenfold, it will be possible to do this, but already in conditions of a scarcity of rare resources and a high price for them. If we increase further, then humanity will face a severe resource deficit, limiting growth.
Growth limits due to environmental factors are even more stringent. A threefold increase in world production in the modern technological order will lead to a global environmental crisis. The earth will turn into a trash heap.
Space expansion makes it possible to overcome the limits of growth through the development of the resources of the solar system and the withdrawal of the dirtiest industries outside the planet. Full-scale industrial colonization of space will allow you to forget about the scarcity of rare and valuable resources. It will supply the earth with structural metals produced in space, such as steel, aluminum and titanium. It will allow the construction of orbital solar power plants, industrial capacity, they will provide the earth with clean energy that does not require any fuel. And they will make it possible to regulate the temperature of the planet. Having mastered space, mankind will be able to increase the standard of living as much as necessary, tenfold, one hundred, one thousand, there are no limits.
In the process of developing the space industry, new technologies will be developed that will raise the level of scientific and technological development of mankind and accelerate economic growth. Colonization of space will give humanity a new technological level and access to unlimited resources. That will raise the quality level of development and allow to increase the standard of living much faster than now, and without any restrictions.
Thus, the full-scale industrial development of the solar system by people, its colonization, will provide a resource and technological base for raising human civilization to a new level. Comparable to the scientific and technological revolution of the past, which raised it to the modern level from the medieval one. Only a new leap in development will occur much faster, due to the speed of modern progress. It will last not centuries, but decades.
These are the main goals of space expansion, to gain control over the resources of the solar system, and due to them to rise to a new level of development.
What hinders the practical development of space expansion, if this direction promises to bring benefits and prospects incomparable with anything that can be achieved within the earth?
According to the now accepted opinion, the high cost of space transport, and as a consequence, the huge costs for the development of the space industry, hinders. But to this it must be added that the traditional space players did not even try to develop it. States are engaged in scientific demonstration programs, sticking flags for their own prestige, and they are completely satisfied with this situation. Large corporations could develop the industrialization of space if they wanted, but they are afraid to invest in extraterrestrial infrastructure for the future. Preferring to strengthen their monopolies on the land and siphon resources from the banana republics. New space privateers want to colonize space, but they are weak organizers, unable to build a system in the economy that can lead the industrialization of space and is interested in it.
How to overcome the gap that separates earthly space from outer space?
To develop qualitatively new transport systems with lower prices and higher productivity. These are reusable rockets, and further, rocketless transport systems that work without burning chemical fuel. Such as electromagnetic cannons, or space elevators, to lift cargo off the ground. For flights in zero gravity, between orbits, asteroids and planets, these are plasma-powered orbital tugs.
And simultaneously with the development of new transport infrastructure, move the production infrastructure off the ground. In order not to carry from the ground all the equipment necessary for the construction of the space industry, but to produce its main part in space, from local raw materials.
Thus, the main method of colonizing space is the development of space transport and industrial infrastructure.
How to create economic motivation for the industrialization of space?
Focus not on gigantic programs, super-expensive and with a long payback period, but to develop small, not expensive projects that quickly return the money invested in them. With fast growth and high profitability. Inexpensive and profitable projects will motivate investors and industry to invest in the development of extraterrestrial industry.
What if the largest players with a lot of money and industrial capacities, states and large corporations do not want to invest in the colonization of space?
To create a system that relies on the practical directions of space exploration, technologies and organizational approaches available for implementation and giving quick profit. Allowing to involve the financial and industrial potential of the earth in the process of industrialization of space.
Develop alternative projects available to private traders and startups. To develop alternative directions that reduce costs and increase the economic attractiveness of the development of space expansion. Business and society, seeing that the process of space expansion has emerged from stagnation, will begin to be drawn into it, interested in development prospects.
Cosmonautics of the modern type, the race for records for the sake of the prestige of the authorities.
Modern astronautics originated at the height of the Cold War. A period of intense military and political competition between the blocs led by the USSR and the USA. The first space carriers were powerful ballistic missiles, the main task of which was to transfer a thermonuclear warhead across the ocean. Special modifications of ballistic missiles made it possible to slightly increase the speed of the payload so that it did not fall to the other end of the earth, but remained to revolve around the earth in orbit, turning into a space satellite or ship.
The first space flights aroused great public interest. Political leaders quickly appreciated them as a good propaganda tool to raise the international prestige of military-political blocs, and simply to strengthen their power. And they began to develop the direction of space research, investing considerable funds in it.
In the first decade and a half of the space race, between the launch of the first satellite and the Apollo program, a system of state space agencies was formed, and their main strategy, “Race to Records”, for the sake of the prestige of power.
The space race, on the one hand, made it possible to relatively quickly create a modern-type rocket and space industry. But on the other hand, it froze the development of astronautics at the research stage for a long time. Replacing the desire for real, practical space exploration with scientific demonstration programs, experimental in nature.
Among the analysts of the state space agencies, it is believed that practical space exploration is too expensive and therefore not available. But this opinion is justified only in part, in practice there have been many projects for the development of qualitatively new space transport systems. Projects for the use of extraterrestrial resources. Development projects outside of the earth are manufactured using alien raw materials. These projects were feasible and profitable. They made it possible to launch a gradual flow of money from the world economy into the space industry and the growth of the industrialization of space. But no one tried to implement them, even if only in the form of experiments. Moreover, information about practical space industrialization projects is not published, it only circulates in insider circles. And the task of colonizing space by states is not on the agenda. What comes from them is that in thirty, fifty years, perhaps, we will build bases on the Moon and Mars, astronauts from there will wave a flag on a constant basis, and everyone will be happy.
The opinion that state administrations do not have enough money for qualitatively new steps in space exploration is also not justified. They have more than enough resources, they have at their disposal the largest scientific and industrial capacities, with aggregate annual budgets of $ 30-40 billion. If they wanted to, they would have long ago created the footholds of the space industry, from which its growth would begin.
Under the control of state administrations, space expansion has been virtually forgotten. It is perceived not as the main goal of space activity, but as a vague futuristic abstraction. The opinion has become stronger in society that in the near future there is nothing to think about large-scale space expansion, maybe it will become possible only in a hundred or two hundred years.
During the space race, the states gave people a promise that they would become the flagships of space expansion, but they did not fulfill this promise and are not going to fulfill it. State space agencies and their record-racing strategy are a dead end option.
Modern space private traders.
In the last decade, private players have begun to join space exploration, with more practical goals. A strategy-driven race for space resources and profits instead of a race for records. The private space industry, in the form in which it is now, came out of amateurs, and is still in the formative stage. Its advantages are that it is more pragmatic and creative. The disadvantages are that it is poorly organized, consists of individual players not connected into a single system, and is mainly engaged in small projects that are not directly aimed at industrializing the solar system.
The private space industry took a pretty brisk start about 10 years ago. With the appearance of teams planning to develop in space production, mining of mineral resources and transport systems of a new generation. Such as 3D printing on asteroids, where asteroid iron can be used to make heavy mining equipment instead of driving it off the ground. Extraction of valuable resources on asteroids, such as precious metals and rare earths. The production of fuel from lunar ice is relatively cheap, since it is much easier to put it into orbit on the moon due to its low cosmic speed. Construction of a space elevator on the moon, where it is technically feasible due to low gravity.
But in practice, amateur teams did not have enough organization to bring projects related to the industrialization of space to implementation. Now they are practically all closed. The only real development was the private rocket industry, mostly made up of start-ups that make small rockets. Only Elon Musk, the owner of the Space X company, came out on a large scale. Which launched a line of reusable rockets, and is now making a heavy reusable Super Heavy rocket, working in conjunction with the Starship reusable shuttle, which will be able to significantly reduce the price and increase the scale of space activities.
If the private traders were more far-sighted and strategically thinking, they could unite into a community, distribute roles among themselves, and work out a single plan for the development of transport systems and the space industry. And then to act according to this plan as a world corporation. In this case, they could actually develop global projects for the industrialization of the solar system. But as far as I know, there are no such projects now.
Space transformation project, an alternative to the accepted strategies for the development of space expansion.
I am an alter-system innovator, one of the private space players, but unlike the bulk of alternative people by education, I am not a rocket engineer, but a business organization manager. Seeing a stagnation in the development of space expansion, which is caused not by the lack of financial resources or technologies for the space industry, but by the lack of cost-effective plans and poor organization. I have worked out a new project for the development of space expansion, which has no limiting barriers and does not depend on states or large corporations.
This is a project for the transformation of modern humanity into a space civilization, “Space Transformation”.
The logic of the currently accepted approaches to the development of space expansion is the gradual development of astronautics, from research, to industrial enterprises, and further to the full-scale industrialization of the solar system. After which humanity will move to the level of space civilization. But this will have to wait a long time, everything that is done in space costs a lot of money and cannot develop quickly.
My project involves starting with the construction of a space civilization within the boundaries of the earth, where it is available. To make the transition to a way of life and technology corresponding to the quality level of space civilization. To develop on earth a new industry capable of spreading quickly and without gigantic costs in space, consisting of machines that produce copies of themselves, microfineries – “Replicators”. And after going through a new industrialization on earth, to begin the industrialization of space, without long expectations, immediately on a global scale, mobilizing for this the entire economic potential of the earth.
This approach removes the constraining barriers facing space expansion. It makes it possible to embark on the path of building a space civilization in the near future, on earth this can be done without hindrance. And after reaching a sufficient technological level by the replicator industry, move on to the industrialization of the solar system, also without encountering significant obstacles along the way.
Space transformation is a transition into the mainstream of the development of a space civilization, a transition to its living standards, in all areas. Technological, organizational, social. The flagship area of space transformation is a new industry of replicators that makes colonization of the solar system possible and profitable. But other areas are just as important. From the point of view of society, the living environment is important first of all, and it includes everything, not only technology and the economy. And on the other hand, the general civilizational level of development is also a comprehensive phenomenon.
Space Age Industry.
The space age industry is a renewed industry of the earth, based on the technologies and principles of space civilization. The earth segment of the space age industry must create a living environment on earth that corresponds to the quality level of space civilization. The intermediate “Subspace” segment, at the stage of preparation for the colonization of space, will be used to improve the technologies of the space industry and create an economic basis for the industrialization of space in the future. The space segment will emerge when the space age industry has reached sufficient power and technology, and begins to move from earth to space.
Industrialization of space using replicator microfabrics.
The advantages of industrialization of space by replicators are that it is a fundamentally new industrial infrastructure, consisting of light, mobile, industrial complexes with ultra-high growth rates.
Industry of the modern type is based on highly specialized machine tools. For the production of complex products, long and complex production chains are created, which include not only many machines, but also many enterprises. For example, to make a car, you need a metallurgical plant, a machine park for the production of major parts, and a network of sub-companies supplying secondary parts. In order for the industry to reproduce itself, a complex of enterprises, to be able to produce another complex of enterprises, it must be a complex system consisting of at least dozens of large enterprises.
The main difficulty in colonizing space is high transportation costs. It is prohibitively expensive to transport all equipment for the space industry from the ground. The way out is to create an industry in space that can reproduce, grow at the expense of extraterrestrial resources. But transporting into space a complex of enterprises capable of building another complex of enterprises and so on, creating an industry nucleus capable of expanding is also prohibitively expensive for a traditional type of industry. To do this, dozens of factories will have to be moved into space.
In addition, the growth rate of modern industry is not high, the complexes of enterprises cost tens of billions, and pay for themselves in 10-15 years. Industrial capacities doubled in about the same time. It’s on the ground. And in space, a similar industrial complex will cost hundreds of billions if the weight of its equipment is reduced to the limit. How long will such an industrial complex take to pay off is a big question, but definitely not quickly. The growth rate of space enterprises of this type would not be high, they could grow to the scale of at least 1% of the earth’s industry in 30-50 years.
If states at one time, in the first decades, astronautics would begin to develop the space industry. We would find ways to greatly simplify production technologies, make equipment lightweight, and put the first production centers into trial operation. They could now create an extraterrestrial industry with a turnover of several trillion, 1 – 3% of the earth’s economic potential. But they didn’t want to. And now this scenario is morally outdated, there is no point in returning to it. We need to use new, more efficient technologies and approaches to the organization.
According to my project, a new industry based on digital manufacturing should work in space. Universal machines that create products by adding material in small portions according to a digital template 3D printers. 3D printers are versatile machines. They can produce products of any shape, in one stage of processing, immediately make a finished part from raw materials. By combining several 3D printers of different types, several assembly manipulators and a computer control center, you can create a lightweight, mobile, production complex. Which can be placed in a garage, container or space station module. Due to their versatility, such production complexes can make any complex products. Such as cars, various industrial equipment, or making your own copies – “Replicas”.
The replicator is the space manufacturing industry unit of the future, a lightweight, mobile machine capable of self-replicating at high speed.
Micro-factories replicators provide completely new opportunities for the industrialization of space. These machines are lightweight and cheap. It is possible to deliver them into space with modern rockets without mega-expenditures. But in space, given the right resources and energy, replicators can multiply rapidly, increasing their numbers exponentially, and producing robots that serve as cybernetic working hands.
The first replicators should be launched into space together with robots, “Centaurs”, which have an anthropomorphic, humanoid torso on a tracked or wheeled chassis. Growing centaurs will be used for replicator maintenance, resource delivery, simple repairs. And then, they will build and maintain industrial bases.
Having reached the required number, groups of robots and replicators will build industrial infrastructure. The first extraterrestrial industrial centers will produce spacecraft with replicators on board, which will scatter across the solar system, carrying the “Seeds of Industry” to planets and asteroids.
The main material for spacecraft will not be metal, but fibrous ceramics. A composite of mineral fibers, basalt wool, and sand, sintered by sunlight concentrated in light, film mirrors. Silicate soil and sunlight are ubiquitous in space, making it easy to find resources.
After the spread of the replicator industry in space, groups of robots and micro-factories will build “Rocket-free transport systems” that work without the use of low-efficient chemical fuel. Such as powerful electromagnetic accelerators orbiting the earth and the surfaces of other planets. Rotary boosters, slings, with kilometer-long rotating cables. Capable of launching cargo into orbit from the surface of the moon, creating transport bridges between the earth and the moon, or launching cargo into deep space from earth orbit. Space cable elevator on the Moon, where it is technically feasible with modern materials, due to low gravity. Later, with the availability of sufficiently strong materials, it is possible that an elevator for the earth will be built. Reusable Orbital Tugs will start flying in orbits near planets and between planets, with economical plasma engines. When the economic potential of the space industry becomes comparable to the earth’s, railways will be built on magnetic levitation, on overpasses a hundred kilometers high, going beyond the earth’s atmosphere. Or rings with electromagnetic rails in earth orbit. Capable of sending containers into orbit, and receiving containers with extraterrestrial resources from orbit. The new transport systems will be able to provide transportation in industrial volumes at a reasonable price, ten times cheaper than missiles. and take containers with extraterrestrial resources from orbit. The new transport systems will be able to provide transportation in industrial volumes at a reasonable price, ten times cheaper than missiles. and take containers with extraterrestrial resources from orbit. The new transport systems will be able to provide transportation in industrial volumes at a reasonable price, ten times cheaper than missiles.
The space industry will build orbiting solar power plants for the earth. Capable of providing the earth with unlimited, clean energy and regulating the temperature of the planet, obscuring the sun when warming is threatened. Deliver extraterrestrial resources to earth, first of all valuable, precious metals and rare earth elements from asteroids. Then massive ones, aluminum, titanium and asteroid iron.
Replicators will not be able to manufacture all parts in space. 3D printers will only print simple iron parts and designs. High-tech parts such as electronics, instruments, precision mechanics will be delivered from the ground. Therefore, the space industry will actively consume science-intensive products manufactured in earthly scientific and technological centers. And along with the colonization of space in the earth’s industry, high-tech industries will actively develop, which will turn the earth into the “Silicon Valley of the solar system.”
When the flow of massive resources from space goes to the earth, the earth’s industry will be rid of the dirty mining and metallurgical industries. The Earth will receive metals from space and make goods for people from them. Cars, planes, yachts, building structures, various household items. It will be produced by automatic production complexes, cheaply and in large quantities. Space resources by earthly standards are almost limitless.
A fast-growing industry based on replicators and unlimited resources of the solar system will increase the economic power of humanity at a high pace and without any ceilings that limit growth. Literally make the earth a millionaire planet.
With the growth of industry and economy, intensive progress will begin in all areas. In science and technology, in public organization and legal protection, in the level of education and the level of thinking. There will be an ascent to a qualitatively new level of general civilizational development, which is the ultimate goal of building a space civilization.
The industrialization of space with the help of replicators will not be super-expensive, but it will be fast, large-scale and super-profitable. It will gain full power over the coming decades. In the not distant future, it will give you the future that you expect from astronautics.
Terrestrial segment of the replicator industry.
The replicator industry, before going into space, must go through a stage of growth and improvement of technologies on earth. In the form of a mass business industry.
The massive use of replicators will attract investments in this segment and will contribute to the improvement of their technologies. At the same time, forming on the ground a segment of business interested in the development of space resources.
The first replicators will be assembled from commercially available components. And represent garage or container micro factories. After the first experimental laboratories have made a profit and investment, they will move on to the production of parts specifically designed for serial replicators. Further, replicators will proliferate in the entrepreneurial environment, and their technology will improve rapidly.
3D printer printing car body. The modern predecessor of the future garage micro-factories.
The price of serial replicators will be comparable to cars. These machines will be used for the production of various industrial equipment, special equipment, agricultural machinery, and consumer goods such as cars, furniture, and parts for prefabricated housing.
The ability to make your own copies will allow the replicator industry to grow rapidly. By accelerating industrial and economic growth, and helping to eliminate inequalities between developed and developing countries.
A worker or small entrepreneur can buy a replicator. The first car will make dozens of copies of itself, and the owner will become an entrepreneur with an income of tens of thousands of dollars a month. Or more, if it increases the scale of its production, more than it can serve personally, turning it into a company with hired workers.
Entering the mass replicator market will make the manufacturing environment accessible to mass businesses. At the same time, production will be highly automated and minimal use of manual labor. The income from it will mainly belong to small and medium-sized entrepreneurs, society, and not large corporations. And the participants in this sphere will have high economic independence, since they will have at their disposal production facilities close to a full cycle, from raw materials to sales.
Economic independence will create the basis for political rights, contributing to the transformation of workers and employees into a social stratum of independent economic and political players, “the middle class of industrial business.”
The replicator industry will provide tangible socio-economic development even at the stage of preparation for the colonization of space. In the form of multiple acceleration of economic growth, development of mass manufacturing business, reduction of inequality between countries and strengthening of the entrepreneurial middle class.
According to my plans to enter the market of mass replicators, one can expect 2 to 3 years after the launch of the network corporation of the space age industry. And in 10 years, the first space versions of replicators should appear, which will create the first footholds of the solar system industry.
The replicator industry is the flagship segment of the space age industry, but it will start operating later when the project gains sufficient capacity to fund development work in high-tech manufacturing and networking business communities in this area.
More about the concept: Space transformation, the transition to space civilization available now
Organization and practical development of the space transformation project.
At the first stages of development, the space transformation project will work in the form of an information template for the construction of a space civilization, which will be used mainly for the transition of people to its living standards. As a platform for business development using the rudimentary space-age technologies that are now available. Profiting from commercial intermediation and advertising. Promoting the directions of business development, equipment for business, items that form a living environment according to the standards of space civilization, the principles of organization and the way of life of people of the space age.
This approach makes it possible to develop activities to transform humanity into a space civilization in the information space. Using the information environment as a basic infrastructure for driving a trend, interacting with people, organizing communities and organizing activities. With the ability to quickly go global without facing administrative barriers. Not investing at the start, but making a profit, which will be directed to projects related to the production and development of new technologies.
The information component in my project is the leader. Now he is the only one simply due to the lack of other resources. But this approach, building an organization on the basis of an information template, will work at all stages of development.
If a space transformation project appears in the information environment, is put on the agenda, it already begins to work as a trend, a direction of development, or a direction for organizing life. And when you receive information about the project, you will enter it into the list of your personal opportunities for living a lifestyle, doing business, and opportunities for development for the future.
Any civilizational process is built on the basis of an information template, which serves as the basis for the formation of a personality, interaction between people and a public organization. Information and semantic models underlie civilization, and this is a natural part of its life and work.
The first civilizations arose spontaneously, in favorable regions, and evolved as a result of long historical development. Their information and semantic basis developed in the form of a tradition, accumulating the experience of many generations. But the civilizational process can and be constructed consciously. Completely spontaneously, based on traditions, humanity developed only during the period of deep archaism, at the tribal level. As soon as cities appeared, an intellectual elite appeared, the development of civilization became manageable and began to be corrected. Mostly political and religious leaders or philosophers. Now information-semantic models on which civilization is built are being corrected by states, power groups in the economy, and non-systemic intellectuals. Systemic players seek to strengthen their power, non-systemic,
Correction or alignment of civilizational processes according to an informational template is a part of our life, and it happens all the time, only this is usually not announced directly. My, altersystem, project of civilizational construction is open, designed for direct interaction with society. What distinguishes it from the systemic projects of power groupings. Which are closed and taboo, calculated to achieve domination through personal manipulation and administrative pressure, direct or not obvious methods.
The information template that will be followed by the transformation of mankind into a space civilization will be implemented in practice through publications for free borrowing. And through the system of practical implementation of the project, which works as a networked world corporation.
Space transformation system.
The functions of conducting practical activities, such as organizing life, doing business and other professional activities, social and political organization, will be performed by the system of space transformation.
According to the principle of organization, the space transformation system is a network community with a high degree of civil self-government, based on the interaction of people with each other via the Internet.
This will be a stratum of society, united by the desire to move into the life and technological structure of space civilization and further develop in this direction. And the intrasystem elite, the system of managers, coordinators who maintain order and organization in the networks involved in business development and technology modernization, as well as public figures and activists.
The currently dominant vertical system of organization is built from top to bottom through the subordination of people by force, persuasion and money. It is managed through a multilevel administrative system. The main benefits from its work are received by the power groups that are at its apex, have the ability to distribute resources in their favor and manage the system, maintaining their power.
Power is not only state, but also economic, clusters of banks or large corporations. There are also religious corporations, but this type of government is medieval, now not dominant and slowly dying out. A society with a vertical control system occupies a subordinate position, power groupings occupy a dominant position. Democratic institutions give society more freedom, but they are mostly decorative, created by the authorities in an attempt to gain approval and support in society without losing actual domination. And their real efficiency is not high.
In network structures, the orderliness of society appears not as a result of the subordination of power, but as a result of uniting people according to the principle of a common vision of the world, common interests and common goals. As a result of purposeful adherence to the generally accepted order for the sake of achieving one’s own and the common good. There is no power resource in the network structures, the elite cannot enforce order and organization, but they are forced to follow them by competition and the desire of participants to maintain or raise their position in society.
The networks also have a vertical hierarchy and an elite, but this elite is not separated from society by barriers, like the traditional administrative system and the power groupings that lead it. And management along the network hierarchy is both top-down and bottom-up, approximately in equal proportions of 50-50%. Society and the elite have equal opportunities, and the balance between them is the result of a contract. Network elites can rule a society, but they cannot impose unfavorable conditions on it by force or cunning. They will try, but in the conditions of openness and competition, such attempts will lead to a loss of trust in individual coordinators, and with the loss of trust, they will lose the ability to manage. Since there is no power resource or capital pressure, it is impossible to subjugate people by force or the threat of dismissal, the possibility of management is based on trust. Coordinators will sell their management services to people, and people will choose which services to buy and pay for and which not. Attempts to pressure or cheat in such a system will turn managers into illiquid assets.
The principles of direct democracy and direct interconnection of the ruling stratum with society do not allow the network elite to turn into a closed “VIP caste”, moving from management to domination and inhibiting progress.
Networks, due to their flexibility, can easily maintain the rapid pace of modernization, with a change in technology generations every 5 years, necessary for the development of the space age industry. Networks that are organized around the Internet as a basis for their organization do not depend on national boundaries, social, class or cultural barriers.
The network is the best form of organization for a global community that spreads throughout the earth, in all spheres and at all levels, and fulfills the function of transforming humanity into a cosmic civilization.
The space transformation system is divided into two main segments, this is a social and business community, connected with each other and working together.
The social part of the space transformation system, people of the space age.
The social part of the system, the public movement “People of the Space Age”, has the main goal of facilitating the transition of people to the way of life of a space civilization. In areas such as thinking, lifestyle, the formation of a personal living environment.
The main features of the people of the space age are:
Independent thinking. Ability to serve as independent players and builders of civilization space. Power will not build a cosmic civilization, it must be built by society.
Maintaining good physical and intellectual tone, activity and initiative. Building a space civilization will require effort, work in space too, space is a dangerous, extreme environment, you need to be ready for this.
Agility of mind, ability to constantly learn. In the system of space transformation, there will be a constant and rapid modernization of technologies and improvement of the organization. Its participants will have to constantly raise their level of knowledge and the level of personal development.
Decency. The ability to serve as a capable unit of organizational structures and an adequate unit of society. In the networked system of space transformation, there is a high degree of self-government, and the people who make up this system must be decent and responsible, since the quality of the system depends on the personal qualities of the participants.
The main advantages that the community of people of the space age can give for its members are high personal potential, organization, a high level of organization of their lives. A more functional organization of life, allowing you to receive more benefits and opportunities, spending less resources on it. The habit of spending resources not on achieving status, but on what really raises the quality of life, personal and professional level. In sum, this will give a higher quality of life, but derived from the quality of its organization.
Space age people, Facebook group.
The business part of the space transformation system, the network community is space expansion.
The business part of the system, the Space Expansion Networking Community, will represent the business community organized as an ecosystem of franchises. Many companies connected with each other, in organization similar to the KFC franchise, one focal point, and from it a network of branches spreads around the world, which copy its technologies and organization and pay part of the profits to the center. The focal points, by concentrating the resources obtained from their networks, will constantly improve technology and organization.
The main advantages of network firms are that they are capable of rapid growth and rapid qualitative development.
The journey from a garage startup to a global scale, supported by a strategic focal point, should take about a year. Organizational principles such as starting with minimal costs, and gradual modernization with the purchase of expensive equipment and automation, as the business develops, will facilitate the emergence and spread of networks.
Plan for the practical development of the network community space expansion.
At the first stage, the project will work as an information product, in the form of publications and communities, on the website, in social networks and in various media. The main sources of money from information activities are advertising, trade and commercial intermediation. This approach allows the project and its first participants to start their activities and develop without costs, relying on information resources.
As the project develops in the information space, participants involved in production, services and trade will be connected to it. At the first stages of direct practical activities, the project will be carried out using technologies and business areas that are the rudiments of a space civilization, which already exist in the modern world. This approach makes it possible not to engage in the development of new technologies at the start, not to waste time and money on this, but to immediately get down to business, build the structure of the organization and make money.
As the entrepreneurial community of space transformation moves to the rank of an ecosystem of corporations, from a start-up, it will develop production capacity and professional quality of the organization, it will begin its own development of new technologies. And it will continue to develop as a segment of the global industry.
The rudiments of cosmic civilization in the modern world.
The rudiments of a cosmic civilization that are already in the modern world, in the form of technology, business equipment and commodities, business development opportunities and lifestyle opportunities. The principles of the development of the technological environment and the principles of building a personal living environment for people, the principles of organization and principles of thinking, this is a ready basis for starting the construction of a cosmic civilization.
At the first stages, the project of cosmic transformation will create a single system from the rudiments of a cosmic civilization, just as a puzzle is built from fragments. By popularizing them, integrating them into a system through an information template and building connections in the business environment. Creation of motivation for the development of the trend of building a space civilization. This approach will make it possible to immediately move on to action, to develop a social and business system of space transformation on a ready-made basis, without hanging up at the stage of research and bringing new technologies to the market.
The general qualities of the rudiments of space civilization are the rudimentary forms of industry and living environment, which will become the main ones after the start of mass colonization of space. Characterized by a high level of automation and robotization, resource conservation and environmental friendliness, high growth rate and high functionality.
The rudiments of space civilization are divided into main areas and industries, such as:
Manufacturing is the leading sector of the industry and it mainly forms the living environment. The higher the level of development of civilization, the higher the level of technology, the higher the level of the economy and the quality of the living environment of people, and the higher the standard of living of people.
The flagship direction of the space age industry is digital manufacturing. Now these are 3D printers of various types and purposes, later there will be micro-factories replicators.
The Space Transformation Project will promote the popularization of 3D printers and business organization using 3D printing. Will be engaged in the organization of miniature production workshops, predecessors of replicators without full automation, which can be created on the basis of modern technologies and components.
An important area of production in the space age, in the near future, is “Hybrid production”. A complex of 3D printing and traditional manufacturing technologies. Such as high-tech injection molding, printed on 3D printers, or obtained using 3D printing. For example, ceramic casts from plastic printed products. Hybrid manufacturing combines the advantages of 3D printing, such as the ability to produce complex unique products, with the advantages of casting, such as simplicity, high speed and low production costs.
The space age manufacturing technology category also includes any technology that meets its general criteria. Such as simplicity, versatility, low material costs, quick payback and high growth rate of production capacity. There are a lot of such technologies now, and they are widespread in the traditional industry. One of the tasks of the space transformation project is to distinguish them into a special segment, to connect them with each other, and purposefully develop this direction.
The construction industry of the space age is a complex of various building technologies and building materials that have the basic principles of space civilization technologies, the possibility of high automation, high functionality, as low as possible material consumption and environmental friendliness, which will shape the appearance of a space civilization on earth, and be used in the colonization of space …
These are technologies such as:
Construction 3D printing.
Use in the construction of robots and machines.
Use in the construction of concrete or steel frames.
Use in construction of sheet fiber concrete. The terrestrial analogue of the promising material for the space industry of the future, fibrous ceramics. Sheets made of fibrous concrete, have high strength, low weight and durability, this is a type of concrete that allows you to significantly reduce the cost of materials in construction, simplify the automation of construction and reduce its price.
Construction of lightweight panels, consisting of sheets of fiber concrete and insulation.
Use in construction of permanent formwork, preferably from sheets of fibrous concrete.
Construction of domed houses. The dome shape is not the most ergonomic, but it evenly distributes the load on the walls, which greatly increases their strength. Accordingly, giving the opportunity to significantly reduce the cost of materials and the cost of buildings while maintaining strength. Dome structures are more resistant to earthquakes and hurricanes.
Use of light transparent domes to create comfortable conditions in regions with extreme climates. Superstructures of light domes over individual houses, as an option for exterior decoration. Or the creation of a system of climate protection domes for cities.
Use in construction of structures from light frames and fabric.
Use of inflatable structures.
Using bricks or blocks with detachable connections such as Lego blocks.
The use of buildings consisting of standardized modules.
The use of technology of houses of transformers. Buildings made of lightweight panels that are laid out on site.
The production and use of mobile structures of various types, such as trailers or floating houses.
The space transformation project will be engaged in popularization, promotion of construction technologies of the space age, motivate construction firms to use them and create firms focused on their use.

One of the varieties of modular transformer houses made of light panels that are now entering the mass market: Boxable Kasita
The food industry of the space age industry includes instant products that are convenient in all respects, but healthy and of high quality. And industrial food production technologies with high productivity and low labor intensity. Both the industrial cultivation of food organisms and the production of ready-to-eat foods.
These are mainly new ways of cultivating products, allowing you to reduce the use of agricultural land or even abandon it altogether. Cultivate products in a completely industrial way, for example, grow microorganisms or microscopic crustaceans in tanks.
And product production technologies that give products that are easy to manufacture and convenient in all respects, in production, storage and sales, convenient for consumers. Combining the low price and convenience of industrially produced fast food products with the quality of healthy products that taste like traditional cuisine.
These are such products and food technologies as:
Fast growing organisms suitable for industrial cultivation.
Microorganisms giving ultra-fast biomass growth, doubling on average in a few hours.
Bacteria that can be grown on a gaseous chemical substrate. Such as natural gas, or hydrogen produced from methane or fossil fuels.
Fungi that can be grown on liquid substrate, refined petroleum products, or synthetic glycerin.
Single-celled algae that can be grown using sunlight or artificial light. These are mainly chlorella or spirulina.
Spirulina is a cyanobacterium, which is comparable in protein content to meat, and in terms of vitamin content it is many times superior to fruits or vegetables. One teaspoon of dry spirulina contains the average person’s daily need for vitamins. Spirulina is considered a promising component of space nutrition that can be reproduced in a closed loop, and is now widely used as a vitamin supplement.
Microscopic, planktonic, crustaceans , giving a doubling of biomass in a few days. Can be grown industrially using microorganisms as a nutrient substrate. And it can be eaten in the form of shrimp paste, a shrimp meat product similar to a paste. Products made from pasta, such as nuggets, or crab sticks, or dry powder, which is diluted with water to obtain a paste.
Perhaps the cultivation of insects and the artificial cultivation of meat on a nutritious substrate will become widespread. But it is more laborious to grow insects than water crustaceans, and it is difficult and expensive to grow meat. In addition, not everyone likes insects. Most likely, growing insects will be a side line for lovers of Asian cuisine. And artificial cultivation of meat will become widespread in the more distant future, when technological advances will make it cheaper.
Freeze-drying and vacuum drying. Allows you to dry food, significantly reducing their weight and preserving, without losing taste and vitamins. To reconstitute the products dried in a vacuum, it is enough to soak them in water. After which they acquire the consistency and taste of fresh. Freeze-dried products are used in astronautics as food for crews with a closed water cycle, which greatly reduces the weight of the supplied supplies. On earth, sublimates are used as food for the military, travelers and tourists. There are household modifications of freeze dryers. Vacuum dryers are not expensive and can be used in small businesses.
All-purpose powder products that contain the full range of nutrients that a person needs, and to prepare them, it is enough to dilute them with water. These are such powders as “Soylent”, and several of its analogues available on the market now.
Fast food high in protein and vitamins. These are products such as:
Protein-flavored chocolate bars or cookies are common on the market or at sports nutrition stores. High in protein and vitamins, muffins can be purchased online or made by hand. Chocolate bars and pastries, traditional fast food, for a quick bite. But their high protein content and vitamin supplements make them a complete meal.
A variety of products from dried ingredients can be prepared in the kitchen. This can be baked goods that are high in protein and vitamins. Protein-vitamin cocktails made from protein powder, dried fruits or berries powder, fruits and berries can be added fresh in the form of juices or purees. Soy protein concentrate products such as textured soy flour or cereals. They can be used as an addition to the dough, or as an instant side dish, which is enough to dilute with warm water.
Agricultural technologies of the space age include hydroponics and mini-greenhouses, which are placed in residential buildings on window sills or hung on walls without taking up much space. These are the forerunners of the greenhouses of the future, which will become common on earth in the space period and in space colonies.
The agrotechnics of the space age will differ from the modern one by a decrease in the volume of traditional agriculture. Protein products will mainly be grown in factories, the protein of bacteria or fungi is the same in composition as meat, but much cheaper, and it is almost tasteless. On the basis of the protein of microorganisms with the addition of a small amount of animal meat or shrimp, cutlets, nuggets, granules, powders, or snacks will be made, which in taste and nutritional value do not differ from meat. Microorganism protein powder will be added to baking flour or powder mixes, nutritional shakes.
Traditional agriculture occupies a lot of arable land. Livestock raising is unjustifiably expensive and not environmentally friendly, the bulk of the grain is used for livestock feed and a lot of water is consumed. But meat is still an expensive product. The traditional cuisine lacks protein and vitamins, and the production of finished products is laborious and expensive. During the transition to the way of cosmic civilization, people will be provided with the protein of microorganisms and vitamins of microalgae. The main carbohydrate foods, grains and potatoes, will be grown on farms. Vegetables, fruits and herbs will be grown in the traditional way. But greens will also be grown on mini farms, on rooftops, and in home micro farms.
Traditional home cooking is time consuming. The value of time as a personal resource is constantly increasing with the development of progress. Modern fast food products are usually not complete or unhealthy, they are only suitable for a light snack. Space age products will combine the convenience of fast food, benefits and quality. These will be mixtures such as meat-flavored protein granules with dried vegetables, or curd-flavored powder with fruits; to prepare them, it will be enough to pour warm water. Powder cocktails. Bars, biscuits, and snacks, sweet, no sugar, or meats that don’t need to be cooked. These products will not take up time and money, but the quality will be at the level of home or restaurant cuisine.

Energy of the space age.
The energy of modern industrial civilization is based on the burning of fossil fuels. It is convenient, not too expensive and provides a lot of energy. But the resources of fossil fuels are limited and burning it is damaging to the environment.
In the transition to the way of space civilization, it will be necessary to constantly and rapidly increase the generation capacity in order to provide energy to the rapidly growing industry based on replicators. Fossil fuels will not be enough and should be discarded altogether. Fossil fuels played a role in the early industrial era when technology was simple. In the future, it needs to be replaced with more efficient and unlimited energy sources.
In my opinion, solar energy will be the basis for the energy of space civilization. First earthly, later cosmic. Nuclear power plants with fast reactors, and biofuels. And over time, thermonuclear power will be mastered.
Now solar energy is considered to be of little use for industry and mass consumption, due to the fact that it is too diffuse and expensive. But sunlight can be concentrated with mirrors and solar generators do not have to be expensive. Nowadays, silicon solar cells are mainly used as solar generators. But I think this is the wrong direction, since silicon production itself is very energy intensive, and the price of silicon solar cells cannot be significantly reduced. Silicon solar cells are cost-effective, but their payback period is high, about 5 – 7 years.
In addition to silicon photocells, film photocells based on rare earth elements are widely available. They are efficient and lightweight and require little energy to produce. But they are expensive due to the high price of rare earth elements.
Solar energy of the space age.
It is much more profitable for industry to use powerful heat generators, piston or turbine. Using as a source of heat, powerful streams of sunlight, concentrated by a large number of mirrors. This principle is now used in concentrator solar power plants. But their profitability can be increased by making mirrors from sheets of fibrous concrete covered with a mirror-like plastic film.
At concentrator power plants with industrial capacity of hundreds of megawatts or gigawatts, it is more profitable to use turbines. On auxiliary or individual generators with a capacity of megawatts or kilowatts, it is more profitable to use piston, heat engines, with a closed cycle of the working fluid, such as “Stirlings”. They are not expensive, easy to manufacture, and durable enough to work without repair for years, like refrigerator motors.
Cheap solar panels can be obtained by using Perovskit as photocells. Perovskite solar panels should be 3 – 10 times cheaper than silicon ones. But photocells of this type have not yet left the stage of development, it is not possible to obtain a sufficiently high efficiency and durability.
Or use a complex of concentrators and heat-resistant solar cells. In this case, the main part of the solar generator area, about 90%, will fall on cheap mirrors. But the photocell will be very hot in a stream of concentrated light, and special, heat-resistant types of photocells will be needed. They also need to be developed first.
Organic solar cells based on polymers are considered another alternative direction of cheap solar cells. But their efficiency is 2 – 3 times inferior to silicon ones. So far, they are not competitive, despite the low price. It is possible that later this type of photocells will be modernized and become quite effective at a low price.
One of the promising directions of photocells of the future is microscopic antennas “Optical Rektenna”, which directly convert solar or thermal radiation into electricity. On the same principle as antennas that absorb radio beams. With an efficiency of about 50%, theoretically up to 80% is possible. But now only the first experiments are being done with the production of rectennas capable of operating at the frequencies of visible light. Another feature of optical rectennas, the ability to work at infrared frequencies, makes it possible to convert heat from concentrated sunlight or nuclear generators into electricity, with an efficiency close to 100%. Or convert the heat of the environment into electricity, and this is actually a perpetual motion machine.
At the beginning of the massive industrialization of space, space solar energy will be actively developed.
The absence of air and gravity in orbit makes it possible to build concentrating mirrors from an ultra-thin mirror, plastic film, or aluminum foil. Having a large area and scanty compared to the area in weight. In addition, the mirrors of orbiting power plants can be made of alien materials, which will cost ten times cheaper than those delivered from the ground. In space, solar power plants do not depend on the weather, and depending on their orbit, they can generate energy around the clock without falling into the shadow of the earth. Therefore, orbital solar power plants, despite the high cost of delivering cargo to orbit, will be more efficient than terrestrial ones.
In the future, orbiting solar power plants will provide the earth with clean and virtually unlimited energy, which is cheaper than fossil-fueled thermal power plants. That will put an end to the fuel energy.
Terrestrial, subspace, predecessors of orbital power plants, these are assemblies of flat-shaped airships. Flying in the air, structures made of lightweight, film materials capable of converting sunlight into energy. Flying power plants of this type can be made in the near future, at the current level of technology.
Compact portable solar generators with photovoltaic cells are beneficial to use as stand-alone chargers for electronics, smartphones, laptops or satellite phones. They are not expensive and in this capacity justify their price. You can buy them in online stores.
Fast nuclear reactors.
Nuclear energy is one of the areas of energy in space civilization. It is relatively environmentally friendly, cheap, convenient for industry, nuclear reactors are a source of high power energy. Uranium is a fossil raw material, but there is a lot of it on earth, and its reserves on asteroids are unlimited. But modern nuclear reactors have drawbacks that do not allow actively developing nuclear power in the future. And these shortcomings can be overcome through high-quality modernization, the transition to fast reactors.
Modern nuclear power engineering is based on the fission reaction of isotopes of uranium 235, but its share in natural uranium is only 0.72%. Thus, in practice, less than a percent of natural uranium is used. Due to the low efficiency, uranium mining in the future may face a resource shortage. At the current rate of production, uranium from rich deposits, convenient for industrial production, will last for 85 years. Then it will become more difficult and more expensive to extract nuclear raw materials. Considering that the share of nuclear energy in modern energy is 16%, it is unrealistic to actively develop this industry in the future at modern reactors. But there is an alternative option, the transition to fundamentally new rectors.
Promising fast reactors operating on the U238 isotope. This isotope in nature is 130 times larger than uranium 235. And over the decades of traditional nuclear power, huge reserves of depleted uranium have accumulated in warehouses, which are enough to provide new reactors with fuel for centuries to come. A feature of this type of reactors is a closed cycle of using raw materials. After the fuel in the “Burns out” reactor, it is reprocessed, radioactive isotopes are isolated and used to refuel new reactors. This allows the use of uranium raw materials with maximum efficiency and minimizes the volume of radioactive waste.
A model of the BREST-OD-300 fast neutron nuclear reactor has been developed in Russia. This reactor is highly reliable and safe. It uses lead as a heat carrier, which is cheap, does not require high pressure like water, and does not burn like sodium. Radiation radiation does not leave the reactor; it is completely absorbed by the lead. If the reactor cooling system fails, the lead will be air cooled. In an accident, traditional reactors explode from overheating; the coolant in them is water vapor under high pressure. There is nothing to explode in the BREST reactor, the lead is under atmospheric pressure. In case of overheating of the reactor, rods absorbing neutrons automatically enter the core, the solder with which they are attached to the bottom melts, and they float in dense lead. As a result, when overheated, the reactor stalls.
According to UN analysts, if nuclear energy switches to fast reactors, uranium reserves at current rates of use will be enough for another 2,000 years.
In the future, during the period of massive industrialization of space, powerful orbital tugs will be needed to provide transport links with industrial bases on asteroids. In the first decades, such tugs are highly likely to be nuclear. With fast reactors. Uranium for nuclear tugs will be mined on asteroids. Fast reactors will make it possible to economically and efficiently use nuclear raw materials.
Biofuel is one of the energy resources of space civilization. This type of energy raw material has no direct relation to space. This is the rational use of resources on earth. Biofuels are renewable, environmentally friendly fuel. Its role in the energy of the earth during the space period will be auxiliary. But it will be useful in regions with an abundance of dry vegetable fiber, agricultural waste or wood processing.
Biofuels can be used in solid form, in the form of granules. Now such fuel pellets “Pellets”, or briquettes, are used for heating. But in the future, they will be used as fuel for mobile power generators or vehicles. In sparsely populated regions where it is cheap. Solid biofuel can serve as a fuel for steam engines with a closed cycle of a working fluid, sterling. Or for piston engines consuming Sintezgaz, a product of incomplete combustion of cellulose, consisting of a mixture of hydrogen, carbon monoxide and nitrogen.
Solid biofuels can also be processed into more high-calorie, gaseous, or liquid fuels. In hybrid solar generators. They will heat biofuel and the resulting gas, consisting of a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide, under high pressure with concentrated sunlight. Gas will be fired by turbines to generate electricity. After that, methane can either be sent to gas pipes, or processed into synthetic gasoline or alcohol.
Simplified versions of complex generators capable of operating on both sunlight and biofuel combustion energy, and producing combustible gas when there is sun. Could be a good solution for energy development in regions rich in sun and fiber. Such as the southern states of the United States, Mexico, Latin America, Africa or southern Europe. Hybrid generators are more cost effective and more reliable as they continue to operate in the absence of sunlight. They will not cause power outages during climatic disasters.
One of the advantages of biofuel energy in the near future is its low cost, availability for mass business and mass consumption. What can contribute to the spread of this direction of energy among individual consumers, in a sparsely populated area. A set of solar panels for an individual house, together with a battery and an inverter, costs an average of 5-15 thousand dollars. At the same time, you can buy a generator with a piston engine running on gas fuel for $ 500 – 1000, and buy or order a gas generator that converts pellets into syngas. They are not sold everywhere, but they can be ordered from the tinsmiths; in design, they are not much more complicated than ovens. The syngas-fueled piston generator is inexpensive and all-weather, in addition, it can be used to heat a house. This is especially true for farmers
Alternatively, in individual houses, you can install a complex generation system, consisting of a solar concentrator with stirring, which works when the sun is present. When the sun is out, the stirling can switch to generator gas.
Thermonuclear power engineering.
Fusion energy, based on the fusion of nuclei of light elements at temperatures of 100 million degrees or higher, is a highly efficient energy source for several decades.
Fusion provides more energy than fission. Fuel resources for fusion are unlimited. In the future, fusion reactors can be an efficient source of energy on earth. And in space, fusion reactors can serve as highly efficient plasma engines for powerful cargo ships. Which will allow you to quickly move around the solar system, and transport cargo weighing millions of tons.
The main obstacle to the use of fusion is the complexity of the reactors. Experiments with thermonuclear fusion have been going on since the mid-fifties of the last century, but without particular results. It is not possible to create fusion reactors suitable for practical use, and with a high probability it will not be possible for at least several more decades. Therefore, it is necessary to begin the colonization of space using solar and atomic energy.
But in the future, one can count on the emergence of thermonuclear power plants, which will give a new impetus to the development of energy both on earth and in space. And the emergence of thermonuclear orbital ships capable of carrying millions of tons of cargo per voyage, which will fly through the solar system at high speed. By greatly simplifying the task of mastering it by people.

Space age transport.
The terrestrial segment of space-age transport will not fundamentally differ from the modern one. But individual modes of transport will be better developed in it, mass individual flying transport will appear. The share of electric vehicles will increase, but they will not completely replace cars with heat engines. Transport infrastructure will be better developed, charging for electric vehicles in motion, charging and refueling for electric and fuel aircraft without landing, high-speed rail transport.
The most massive type of transport, automobile, with the transition to life and technological standards of space civilization, will be decoupled from fossil fuels. Basically, these will be electric vehicles with an autonomous power reserve of 30 to 300 kilometers. With the ability to charge on the go, from charging systems on the main streets of cities and intercity highways. Wired, similar to wires for trams or trolleybuses, or wireless, linear electromagnets inserted into roads. Far from the charging infrastructure, with the ability to power from replaceable thermal, power plants that will charge the batteries
Modular generators for cars will be made on the basis of engines with high power and efficiency. These are diesels with powerful turbochargers, steam engines with highly efficient heat exchangers, or fuel cells that run on generator gas consisting of a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. Steam engines and fuel cells are multi-fuel, capable of consuming any liquid fuel or solid biofuel. Multi-fuel generators are more versatile, high efficiency, makes it beneficial to use synthetic fuel, which can store energy from solar or nuclear power plants.
The direction of light portable transport, such as electric scooters and electric bicycles, will be actively developed, especially their folding modifications that are convenient for carrying in hands or backpacks. Electric velomobiles will appear, an intermediate option between bicycles and small cars. Portable electric vehicles are cheap, energy efficient and convenient in urban environments. The speed of electric scooters or bicycles is comparable to the speed of cars in dense city traffic, 20-40 kilometers per hour. They do not need garages, they can be charged from household outlets. Portable electric vehicles provide a high degree of mobility for people in urban environments, allowing them to travel at a fairly high speed, but without interfering with the use of public transport or cars.
With the development of the space age industry and the transition to the lifestyle of a space civilization, individual flying vehicles will actively develop. Since it gives a high degree of freedom, it does not depend on roads. Personal flying vehicles are mainly passenger drones, light aircraft, and their hybrids. Electric flying machines will become widespread. They have a limited range on a single charge, but this will be compensated by the possibility of recharging in flight, from road power systems, on low level flight.
It is possible that airplanes receiving energy from the ground, by a microwave or laser beam will spread. Such planes can fly on certain routes with “Lighting Stations” located along it. Aircraft of this type will fly at high altitudes, in a rarefied atmosphere, thereby saving energy. This type of aircraft is a sub-space technology, the predecessor of space transport systems with an external energy supply.
It is possible that airships with a hybrid power plant, liquid fuel and film photocells will become widespread. If sufficiently efficient film photocells based on perovskite or polymers are developed, it will facilitate the spread of solar-powered airships.
The space segment of the space age transport systems will gradually develop from simple and cheap technologies to more technologically advanced and expensive, but also more efficient transport infrastructure.
Modern space transport is basically a powerful analogue of ballistic missiles. They are enough to launch satellites into orbits or probes to other planets, but they are not suitable for transport communication with space in more or less industrial volumes.
With the start of industrial space exploration, the modernization of space transport systems will begin.
First of all, this will be the transition to reusable chemical missiles, which has already begun with the advent of the Space X line of missiles.
But reusable chemical-fueled rockets are an intermediate stage. In the future, there will be a transition to birch-rocket transport systems that meet the needs of the space industry. Capable of providing transport links between the earth and space, and in space between the orbits of asteroids and planets, at reasonable costs and in industrial volumes.
The principle of operation of the rocket is acceleration due to the ejection in the opposite direction of gases obtained during the combustion of chemical fuel and an oxidizer. The rocket must deliver the cargo to a low orbit altitude, 200 – 400 kilometers, and accelerate it to an orbital speed of 8 kilometers per second. But the speed of the jet stream from the rocket engines, on average 3.5 kilometers per second, is much less than the orbital speed. Therefore, the rocket must carry on board fuel 30 times the weight of the payload. And the bulk of the fuel is spent on accelerating other fuel, which gradually burns out as the rocket gains speed. For greater efficiency, the rockets consist of multiple stages that fall off when they run out of fuel so that the weight of empty fuel tanks and lower stage engines does not add to the payload.
Rocketless space transport systems.
The principle of operation of rocket-free transport systems is the acceleration of goods in different ways, without using the principle of jet propulsion. This should greatly reduce the need for chemical fuel, or, in the long term, will allow it to be abandoned altogether.
Missileless transport systems are divided into three main types. These are accelerators that accelerate light rockets on the ground, which reduces their launch weight and cost. Orbital boosters that receive loads from the suborbital bounce trajectory to a low orbit altitude, without horizontal acceleration. Then the speed of the cargo is compared with the orbital transport system, with more or less hard acceleration. And the systems that directly connect the earth to the orbit are the mega-infrastructure of the future.
There are several main types of rocketless accelerators, these are:
They allow you to accelerate the load to a speed of about 1500 meters per second. Inefficient but simple device. It can be used for the initial acceleration of light rockets, replacing the first stages, reducing the mass of the rockets by 30 – 40%.
Light gas cannons.
In which, instead of powder gases, the projectile accelerates hot, highly compressed hydrogen. Allow to accelerate loads up to 3 – 5 kilometers per second. They can replace the first and second stages of light rockets, increasing their efficiency by 50 – 70%.
The load is accelerated by a magnetic field, according to the principle of a linear electric motor. They allow reaching speeds of 8 – 12 kilometers per second. In theory, they are able to launch cargo into orbit from the ground, but the atmosphere interferes. They can launch light missiles into the trajectory of intercontinental warheads. Allow to increase their efficiency by 80 – 90%. Electromagnetic guns can be used both on the ground and in space, in the form of orbital or alien accelerators.
Rockets with external power supply engines in the form of a laser or microwave beam.
Used as a working fluid (fuel that is heated not by combustion, but by heating from an external source), hydrogen, which has a flow rate of 6 – 8 kilometers per second. Such transport requires the creation of special infrastructure, powerful beam generators, on the ground or in orbit. But the efficiency of thermal engines with an external energy supply makes it possible to design lightweight reusable rockets or shuttles, the fuel weight of which will exceed their own weight only 2 – 3 times. The advantage of this type of transport is that it does not create strong overloads, and it can transport people or fragile equipment.
Rotary, cable, accelerators, slings.
In space conditions, it is possible to use cable slings, rotating rotors with long cables of a kilometer length, which accelerate the loads in a simple mechanical way. Slings cannot accelerate loads to high speeds, with modern materials, the limit for them is 700 – 2000 meters per second. They are not effective for the earth, but they can serve to launch cargo into orbit from the moon. And as a transport bridge between the moon and near-earth orbit, supplying the orbital constellation with cheap lunar raw materials and supplying the lunar industry with high-tech equipment from the earth. On the surface of the earth, according to the principle of a sling, a rotor with blades of a kilometer long and jet engines at the ends of the blades can work. Accelerates light rockets to speeds of 700 – 2000 meters per second.
As you know, the planets rotate on their axis. And at a certain altitude, there is an orbit, the rotation speed of which coincides with the rotation speed of the planet. This is the so-called “Stationary Orbit”. And if a massive body, for example an asteroid, is put into an orbit slightly above the stationary one, and a long cable is lowered to the ground from it. Then you get a stationary mechanical system that allows you to move into orbit by a mechanical method, moving along a cable.
The space elevator is a fairly simple transportation system, but it has its limitations. At the current level of technology development, there are no materials for ropes capable of supporting their weight at the height of a stationary orbit, 36 thousand kilometers.
In theory, carbon nanotube filaments or graphene ribbons could be strong enough materials. But while the production of these materials is at the stage of experiments. They are not yet produced in industrial volumes, no one has tried to make long heavy-duty cables out of them. Perhaps ropes for space elevators will learn how to make in the future.
Another limiting factor for orbital elevators is low throughput. The length of the cables is large, tens of thousands of kilometers, the speed of movement of transport modules along the cable is not high, maximum, several hundred kilometers per hour. The cables cannot withstand a lot of additional load, they are already under heavy load, on the verge of breaking. Therefore, it is impossible to hang a lot of load on the cable, a maximum of 10% of its weight, most likely 2 – 3%. And you will have to wait a long time until the cargo reaches a stationary orbit, most likely at least 10 hours. The limited lifting capacity per trip, and the long lifting time of the goods along the cables of the elevators, create limits for the efficiency of the elevators. In order for elevators to be able to provide cargo flows in industrial volumes, you need to make a lot of them, or make cables of great thickness, gigantic weight and cost.
A space elevator for the moon could have been done in the near future. Simultaneously with the creation of the first raw material bases on the moon. Low gravity on the moon allows elevator cables to be made from commercially available materials such as Kevlar or carbon fiber. The lunar elevator could make it easier and cheaper to transport raw materials from the moon to earth orbit, or to earth.
Plasma Orbital Tugs, a jet-powered but economical vehicle.
For flights in orbit, you can use reusable orbital cargo ships, with plasma engines, which have low thrust, which does not allow to take off into the ground, but economically consume the working fluid. The working fluid for plasma engines can be any substance, water, liquid gases, solid substances in the form of a powder, for example, alien soil.
Cannons on the surface of the earth for launching light rockets, the simplest direction of non-missile transport systems. But high overloads at launch will not allow people and complex equipment to be put into orbit by this method. They will be used mainly to provide the orbital constellation with consumables, fuel, metals and polymers, and it is possible that simple equipment will be put into orbit.
With the beginning of the active industrialization of space, rocketless transport systems for launching cargo from the ground will move into orbit where the atmosphere does not interfere with their work.
Transport and energy platforms.
Orbital missileless transport systems will be deployed mainly on heavy ships with their own high-power energy sources “Transport and Energy Platforms”.
Transport and energy platforms will be orbital power plants with rocketless transport systems of various types placed on them. Such as:
Shock receivers of the substance. In which small portions of materials will fall from the trajectory of the suborbital bounce. In such receivers, the cargo will crash into special targets, explode from impact at cosmic speed, and then cool down and prepare for use. Only the simplest materials, metals, water, and liquid gases can be accelerated to orbital speed using this method. But it is technically simple and cheap.
Reverse action cannons. In which the projectiles will hit the barrel and be decelerated by the compressed gases in the barrel, more smoothly, comparing their speed with the orbital platform. In such cannons, the cargo will not explode, but will experience high artillery overloads.
One of the variants of the orbital braking system is the “Gas-dynamic band brake”. It is a long tape with nozzles. Such a tape should slow down a special module with several dozen nozzles. In this case, the gas will be redirected to the nozzles of the tape and the module, in turn, several dozen times, until it heats up from friction. Such a system will consume gas, a working fluid, which in some way unites it with rockets. But the consumption will be moderate, dozens of times more economical than rocket engines. Its advantage is simplicity. Gas-dynamic brake bands can be easily made from meteorite iron by robots.
Electromagnetic accelerators. In which the overloads will vary from several hundred to several tens of units of the Earth’s gravity G. Such accelerators will allow a variety of equipment to be launched into orbit, but their accelerations will remain too strong for people. If electromagnetic accelerators are made a thousand kilometers long, the overloads can be reduced to tolerable, but at the same time the costs and consumption of materials for the construction of such accelerators will greatly increase. In the future, they will be built by robots from asteroid or lunar materials.
Orbital transport and energy platforms will have powerful plasma engines. Allowing them to compensate for the loss of speed when grabbing and accelerating loads. And fly to the orbits of other planets. Such stations built in orbit of the earth can fly into the orbit of the Moon or Mars, and operate there providing inexpensive transport links. And providing energy from orbit, using a microwave beam, the first alien bases.
Stationary space transport systems of planetary scale.
After the transition of the space industry to a global scale, transport and energy platforms will replace stationary systems of space transport infrastructure that provide movement without the use of guns or suborbital rockets. A system of this type will have a gigantic price of trillions of dollars, and the economy of the entire planet will work to create them. And their activities will have a global scale. These are systems such as:
Electromagnetic space railway.
Overpass with magnetic levitation trains, 100 kilometers or more, extending beyond the atmosphere, and capable of supporting direct rail links between earth and space.
Orbital transport ring.
Consisting of an annular electromagnetic accelerator in low earth orbit. And ropes descending from the ring to the ground, along which transport modules with containers between the ground and the ring will move. Suspended from a ring on magnetic levitation. In the ring, the loads will be accelerated to orbital speed or decelerated by long electromagnetic accelerators.
It is possible that space elevators will work if sufficiently strong materials for their cables are created, but their performance is not great compared to other options for the planetary transport infrastructure. The ropes are long, 36 thousand kilometers, the movement of cargo along them is relatively slow, 100 – 300 kilometers per hour. The carrying capacity is limited by the strength of the cable. No more than 10% of its mass can move transport modules on the cable at the same time.
Planetary, rocket-free, transportation systems will have astronomical costs, measured in trillions, or tens of trillions of dollars. But they will become relevant when the space industry is comparable in scale with the industry of the earth, and, taking into account the growth, will have a volume of several hundred trillion dollars. They will be beneficial and necessary despite their price. Their main advantage is that they allow you to link the earth to orbit as directly as possible, without the use of jet engines or guns. The container can be sent into orbit by placing it on the platform of an electromagnetic train or attaching it to the cable of the orbital ring. No fuel consumption, no gigantic overloads. And it will also be possible to receive cargo from space.

Internal organization in the system of space transformation.
In addition to lifestyle and technology, an important area that is the foundation of the construction of a cosmic civilization is the organizational system. A system based on the interaction of people with each other on the Internet.
The Internet is an open public information environment. This is the environment for the emergence of a new type of organizational system. Fully open, based on information communications between people, their interaction with each other to create an organization system that will take into account the interests of all its participants. In which rapid development will be possible and shared prosperity will be achieved. In this system, it is impossible to unequally distribute the functions of government and money, in favor of one nation against another, or one stratum of society against another. Openness and competition simply do not provide such technical capabilities. As you know, monopoly restrains development, and power by its nature always strives for complete domination, and if it achieves domination, it freezes development.
The system of organization is no less important for the transformation of humanity into a space civilization and new industrialization than technology and economics. In the dominant system now, there are the beginnings of a new space age industry, but no one notices them and does not want to develop them. Because the control belongs to officials and big capital, and they are interested in preserving their power, preserving their monopolies, they do not need quality development. In a networked organization, ordinary members will have control over their lives and activities, and they will have a direct interest in improving their standard of living. Transition to more productive business models and living standards, production automation, technology modernization, and all-round development. The principles of organizing space civilization is an open environment,
The traditional, vertically integrated, system of organization is divided into two circuits, massive, more or less generally accessible. And closed, elite. This division has arisen due to uneven access to information and management resources. Access to knowledge and education, control over money and the administrative system. In a networked system, access to information and management resources will be open; everyone who is not lazy to learn and can prove himself as a good organizer will be able to get them. The network system will also be two-circuit, but the division into a mass and elite circuit will follow the principle of the level of personal potential. The external, massive, contour will be the interaction between people, business and social ties. The inner contour, from the point of view of the organization, will be a layer of people with high personal potential, serving as the core of the organization. From the point of view of the individual, it will be the personal space and level of personality development, self-awareness, self-control, which make it possible to more fully use their personal resources. They give an opportunity to enhance personal energy, personal potential, personal characteristics. The environment for the development of personal potential will be the philosophical esoteric system. In which will unite historically developed on earth, Western philosophy, specializing in the development of intelligence and science. And the eastern esoteric systems, specializing in the control of consciousness and the development of personal energy. The inner contour of the organizational system will not be closed, it will be public. which give the opportunity to more fully use their personal resources.

Now we already have an open, publicly accessible information environment, this is the Internet. But society still does not understand its capabilities and does not know how to use it in its own interests. I will develop the organizational system of space civilization, promoting it in the information space in the form of an information template, publications, and involving network communities in it, starting with communities on the Internet, on forums and in social networks.
The rudiments of a space civilization described above in the field of organizing life and technologies give you a general idea of what the existing platform on which the space civilization will be built is. Give a general idea of its further development.
How can you in practice use the basis for building a space civilization available now?
What will give you in practice the use of the concept of building a cosmic civilization, and its beginnings, available in the modern world, described in general terms above?
The principles of human thinking in the space age.
They are based on strategic thinking, independent building of your personality and your life, guided by your own interests, focusing on the model that you want to achieve. And a change in personal priorities, instead of striving for status, striving for functionality. In order to spend their personal resources, time, attention, money, efforts, to receive, first of all, not moral achievements from the purchase of status things, but real results and real benefits.
A strategist mindset, taking control of your life with an expanded outlook and opportunity, and a functional lifestyle will give you a solid and strong life position.
Participation in the system of civilizational building and development, as an independent player and builder of civilizational space, will give you the appropriate opportunities.
In the socio-political system adopted now, the bulk of the population takes the position of servants, they are not guided by anything, they live by everyday and petty career interests. A small, literate stratum of the population takes the position of economic players. They orientate themselves in the economic environment, can participate in economic activities, achieving the results they need. There is a small stratum of political players and activists, but it is very narrow, and mostly not independent, working for the interests of one or another power group. But the position of players capable of navigating the space of world civilization is virtually absent in society. It is extremely narrow and accessible only to the top elite, or analysts close to it, who serve it. In the system of space transformation, the position of civilizational players is freely available, and this position will be occupied by representatives of the governing layer and ordinary participants who are interested in it. One of the primary tasks of the space transformation project is to transfer humanity to a new civilizational way, and further develop and improve the civilizational space, this will be done by civilizational players.
What is the role, such is the place in the system. The new system, which is being formed from scratch, will enable its active participants to become engineers and managers in future corporations. Become political players and public figures in an open information environment. It is not very dependent on education and income, since learning and making money will occur in the course of the development of projects.
In the system of space transformation, citizens will take the positions of independent political and economic players, building the organization of society through interaction with each other and with the governing layer. Ordinary citizens will choose the managers they are interested in and buy from them the management services they need. Managers, in turn, will be able to build branch networks of any scale, increasing their influence, but they will have to coordinate their actions well with lower-level participants and not lose quality.
Cosmic transformation will give you more rights, freedoms, opportunities for business development and general civilizational progress than the system that dominates the world today.
Now the project is a series of publications on the Cosmic Expansion website, in various blogs and online newspapers, and in communities on social networks. It works in the information space as an information product. You can benefit from it by borrowing business ideas, technology, or organizational methods.
For owners of an existing business or various kinds of projects, it can be useful due to the possibilities of accelerated expansion of the client base through publications. This is especially true for e-commerce. Can help expand activities by building relationships with partners and investors. In the long term, copying business models will simplify the opportunities for business development for ordinary participants. The networked principle of organization will simplify business scaling for organizers and managers.
Now, in partnership with the project, it is possible to develop such activities as:
Internet shops of themed goods. And the project site will develop its own store.
Develop points of fast healthy food, space age products.
To develop the production of advanced building materials. Lead the modernization of small construction firms or teams, borrowing space age construction technologies with advancement in the information space to expand market presence.
To develop sales of solar panels or electric vehicles.
Develop digital or hybrid manufacturing.
Conducting social activities.
The project presents a wide scope for social activities. Since work in an information environment, with reinforcement of ideas and meanings emanating from the project, can give a quick and effective resonance in society, with the ability to scale to the entire planet.
In partnership with the project, it is possible to develop such types of activities as philosophy, futurology and forecasting, political and human rights activities, it is possible to develop creative projects.
Borrowing the standards of space civilization in life.
By borrowing the details of the project concept, you can improve your thinking and lead a more functional lifestyle. Switch to the format of thinking of a strategist, civilizational, political or economic player. Lead a more functional and meaningful lifestyle.
Choose a professional specialization, job or business that has high development prospects. In connection with the preparation for the colonization of space or the transition to a new way in technology and organization. Maintain health and activity, as far as possible expand their knowledge about the structure of civilization, politics, economy, technology, by reading publications or watching videos on the Internet. If possible, participate in intellectual or social activities, at least in forums and social networks.
Buying or building cheaper real estate made using space-age technologies, the loan for which can be closed in a few years, so that it does not drag off the most active time of life. Use living space more efficiently by buying folding furniture and minimizing the number of things. Use cheap and comfortable furniture on a light frame with walls made of plastic film or thin panels.
Use a balanced diet that does not take a lot of time and too much money. But allowing you to maintain good tone, avoid infantilism and diseases caused by a lack of nutrients. Especially protein, vitamins and microelements, which are lacking in the traditional diet. Avoid unhealthy foods.
Teenagers can get a general idea of the structure of civilization, politics, economics and technology through computer games and strategies. Space or economic topics. They model the real environment quite well. Perhaps later, game lovers will move from building toy space empires to real space corporations.
People interested in the colonization of space and the future can participate in communication on the interactive sites of the project, in social networks and on forums. Later, if desired, take part in real activities.
Social, organizational or entrepreneurial, working as activists, or system managers, participating in business or technology start-ups.
Building a space civilization becomes a part of your life.
With traditional approaches to space expansion, the transition to the level of space civilization was considered distant and almost unattainable. You could dream about it, anticipate its possibilities, reading futuristic publications or watching fantastic films. They could morally participate in states or billionaires who have enough resources to implement space projects.
But the space transformation project gives you open opportunities to move into the living space of a cosmic civilization and personally participate in its construction. At the same time, progress in the development of space civilization will be progress in your life.
Now the construction of a space civilization is in your hands, and you can make it a part of your life.
