The unusual futuristic design of the electric off-road vehicle from Tesla gives the impression of the car of the future, as if it descended from the pages of a science fiction movie. In addition, Elon Musk’s work in the space field and his well-known projects for the colonization of Mars create an association with the space future. But according to the concept of building a space civilization of the Space Transformation project, Cybertruck is indeed the prototype of cars that will become widespread during the period of mass colonization of space.
The electric SUV, the Tesla Cybertruck, has attracted attention since its first appearance in the media. A car with an unusual angular shape, a silvery steel body, as if it came off the screen of a science fiction movie. By its very appearance, Cybertruck evokes associations of something connected with the future or with space. Such associations are pushed by the active work of Elon Musk on the development of space programs and his well-known plans to create colonies on Mars.
But Cybertruck is indeed with a high probability is the prototype of the car of the space future. When the massive industrial colonization of space begins, cars similar to Cybertrucks will drive on the roads. As its design is optimal for a car made of asteroid iron in automated production facilities.
What is the Tesla Cybertruck design?
It is an off-road vehicle with an electric motor and a body made of stainless steel sheets. At the same time, the car does not have a frame, the role of the supporting frame is assumed by the thick skin. Thanks to this scheme, the Cybertruck is much easier to manufacture, and in terms of strength, this vehicle looks more like a light armored car than a passenger car. Elon Musk chose stainless steel as the main material for the cyber-truck body. This is due to his project of the super-heavy reusable Super Heavy rocket, and the reusable Starship shuttle, which are lined with stainless steel of the same brand.
But stainless steel is also linked to space by the fact that iron meteorites are made of it. More precisely, meteorites consist of an alloy of 91% iron with 8.5% nickel with an admixture of 0.6% cobalt. This alloy can serve as the basis for the production of quality stainless steel. Iron asteroids contain a mass of ready-to-use nickel iron, which is a close analogue of stainless steel in composition and properties. In space, meteorite iron can be used to 3D print all kinds of structures, machinery and equipment. This greatly simplifies the task of developing the space industry, since in space conditions meteorite iron is free, it does not need to be transported from the ground or produced from ore. At the later stages of the industrialization of space, meteoric iron will be delivered to earth, where high-quality steel will be produced from it, and various products from this steel, including cars.
The nickel steel from which the Tesla Cybertruck is made is a space age material.
The structure of the monocoque body, made of steel sheets, is convenient for production. It reduces the number of technological operations in production, cars of this design can be made quickly and in large quantities.
In the future, during the period of massive industrial colonization of space, when cheap means of space transport will be created, and space materials will be massively supplied to earth, cars on earth will be made similar to Cybertruck. From similar materials, using similar technologies.
In addition, the popularization of Tesla Cybertruck and its production technology can, to some extent, accelerate the onset of the space age.
Now on earth there are quite a few different technologies and consumer items that are the rudiments of a space civilization. They create a basis, continuing to develop which, it is possible to quickly reach the technological and living standards of mankind in the space age.
Such a task, the development of technological and living standards of the space age, is set by the project “Space transformation”. It is an organizational startup whose mission is to start transforming humanity into a space civilization in the near future, before the colonization of space. In the form of purposeful development of technologies and living standards of space civilization, which will accelerate preparations for the colonization of space.
The main logic of the project is that it is much cheaper and faster to develop technologies for the space industry on earth than in space programs. By stimulating the development of space industry technologies now on earth, it is possible to accelerate the colonization of the solar system in the future.
According to the concept of space transformation, the key innovation required for the transition of industry beyond the borders of the earth is the creation of Replicator micro-factories. Lightweight mobile production complexes, consisting of several 3D printers and assembly manipulators, capable of making any products and producing copies of themselves, multiplying. In space, such machines will spread similarly to colonial insects. If you launch one replicator on the Moon or an asteroid, in a year there will be a grouping of thousands of such machines and robots. And in tens of years, millions of industrial bases will be built, scattered throughout the solar system, supplying the earth with space materials. A grouping of orbiting solar power plants supplying the earth with clean and inexhaustible energy. And a missile-free transport infrastructure capable of providing transport links in space in industrial volumes and at a reasonable price.
The plan for space transformation, to start the construction of a space civilization now, to conduct it within the earth for some time, but after the creation of a sufficiently massive and technologically advanced replicator industry, to begin the massive industrialization of the solar system. Removes the restrictions facing the transition of humanity into the space age. The implementation of this plan does not require huge costs and long expectations, which restrain the colonization of space according to the now accepted scenario, through the gradual development of space programs.
The project of space transformation in the early stages will develop as a concept, an information template for the transition to life and technological standards of space civilization. And then, through the information template, the development in the direction of building a space civilization will be adjusted.
Now one of the project’s tasks is to build a single system out of the rudiments of a cosmic civilization available on earth. Which will become a support for the construction of a space civilization. Similar to how a picture of a puzzle is built from fragments. This picture will be built through publications that draw attention to individual rudiments of a cosmic civilization, the relationships between them and their further development in the direction of building a cosmic civilization. So the project of transforming humanity into a cosmic civilization is set in motion through the dissemination of information.

Tesla Cybertruck is one of such rudiments of a cosmic civilization available now. During reindustrialization, the transition to space age technologies, similar machines will become widespread. After the massive industrialization of space, similar machines will be made from asteroid iron at automated production facilities. Cybertruck is the direct predecessor of the space age automobile industry. Besides, this is not an exotic, not an experimental car, but a car for the mass market.
Unlike Tesla’s line of electric vehicles, which are overly expensive and high-profile, the cyber truck has an adequate price. This machine is functional and versatile. Its advantages include a low operating cost. Cybertrack does not require fuel, electric vehicles hardly break down, and require almost no maintenance. The disadvantages of this machine are its dependence on charging stations, which are not available everywhere. In the US and the EU, infrastructure for electric vehicles has been built in major cities and on major highways, but it is not yet ubiquitous. The cyber truck has a sufficiently large range on a single charge, from 400 to 800 kilometers, depending on the modification, enough to drive all day on a single charge, drive 100 to 300 kilometers from charging stations, or drive between nearby cities without recharging. But if charging is not available, in remote areas, or on highways when driving, you can put a powerful generator on piston engines in the body of the car, which will charge the batteries on the road.
Having bought a Cybertruck, you can, to some extent, get for yourself the vital benefits of a space civilization. Only the beginning of mass sales of this car has been postponed until 2022 – 2023. But wait is not long, this is the prospect of the coming years.
