Missão 46 na Estação Espacial Análoga Habitat Marte



Foi concluída domingo, 2 de agosto de 2020, a 46ª missão organizada pela estação espacial análoga Habitat Marte. A missão começou em 25 de julho e teve participantes da Índia, Kuwait, Irlanda e Brasil. Os membros da missão 46 foram Julio Rezende (Brasil), Pallavi Prasad (Irlanda), Pranjal Mhatre (Índia), Ravva Saranya (Índia) e Rawan Alshammari (Kuwait). A missão teve a participação de Arvin Tan (Filipinas), Davi Souza (Brasil) e Mariam Naseem (Canadá) como pesquisadores convidados. É uma missão híbrida virtual que também possui atividades nas instalações do Habitat Marte.

O objetivo da 46ª missão foi acompanhar o lançamento do rover Perseverance e identificar possíveis resultados a serem aplicados no desenvolvimento de futuras tecnologias que suportem os habitats de Marte. Durante a missão também foi acompanhado o retorno da capsula da SpaceX da Estação Espacial Internacional com os astronautas Doug Hurley e Bob Behnken  com retorno em segurança neste domingo, 2.

Mission 46 in Habitat Marte accompanied the launch of Perseverance and the return of the Endeavour capsule



On Sunday (August 2nd) we successfully concluded the 46th mission organized by Habitat Marte space analog station. The mission started on July 25th. The 46th edition presented participants from India, Kuwait, Ireland and Brazil. The members of the mission 46 were, Julio Rezende (Brazil),  Pallavi Prasad (Ireland), Pranjal Mhatre (India), Ravva Saranya (India) and Rawan Alshammari (Kuwait). The mission also included Arvin Tan (Philippines), Davi Souza (Brazil) and Mariam Naseem (Canada) as invited researchers. It was a virtual hybrid mission with having activities in the facilities of Habitat Marte in Brazil. 

            The goal of the 46th mission was to follow-up the launch of Perseverance rover and identify possible spin-offs from the mission in order to apply in the development of future technologies supporting Mars habitats. Also during the weekend (2nd Aug ) we witnessed the return of the SpaceX capsule Endeavour from International Space Station bringing safely the NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken.

The 46th mission concluded very well with 9 days of telepresence meetings, presentations, online and offline activities. Mission outcomes were also submitted as abstracts for the 23rd Mars Society Convention. More information about the mission on www.HabitatMarte and the social media @HabitatMarte.

Final meeting.

 

Two main delivers of Habitat Marte: promote STEM and agriculture. Also during the time of social isolation from COVID-19 pandemics, We can see a social movement  during COVID-19 social isolation time in Twitter: a lot of people interested in space are also developing food crops, in many times in apartments and small areas in the houses.  

One difficult decision related to the Mars habitat: proximity of water reservoir (polar areas) versus feasible temperature. 

About the launch / landing centre is necessary identify a location with proximity from the water reservoir to produce oxygen and propellants. The location would be located from a safer distance to the main station but at the same time presenting the easiness of cargo and passengers transportation.  

About the sanitation centre it is important develop protocols of hygiene and the possibility to produce fertilizers. It is possible see a great integration with the greenhouse facility with circular cycles between these two facilities. It is important the sanitation centre resent guidelines about waste discard and recycling.

During the mission was presented great interest in technologies aboard of Perseverance rover, in special the MOXIE technology, a very useful technology to generate water and oxygen that would be used in future settlements in Mars.

            During the last two day was followed up the capsule Endeavour undocking from International Space Station – ISS with astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley and also the SpaceX capsule splashdown close to Pensacola (Florida) in Atlantic Ocean.

            Because of the two important space events, Perseverance rover launching and Space X capsule return and splashdown, the mission 46 was historical and unique.

All presentations were recorded and released in Youtube channel and also shared in Twitter and Facebook. Was prepared an abstract to 23rd Annual International Mars Society Convention about the operation of the Powerstation.
