Results and final considerations

From June, 12th to 19th 2020, happened the 42th mission of the Habitat Marte space analog research station. This mission was reflect about a self-sustainable space food systems. The members of the mission 42 were Julio Rezende (Brazil), Davi Souza (Brazil), Jas Purewal  (England), Sai Kiran Parre (India) and Mariam Naseem (Canada). The mission presents the following invited researchers: Eva Blaisdell (United States) and Dr. Sian Proctor (United States).

This mission was the fourth time when the participants are designed as chief of facilities of the space habitat: Main Station, Engineering Center and Bioregenerative Life Support Center.

It is also the fourth time operating with CapCom, a moment when is transmitted personal report/ local data collection to the commander and other members of the crew; CAPCOM methodology. CAPCOM is the communication liaison between the astronauts and Mission Controls Centre-this role is designated to the commander. CAPCOM is an acronym for ‘Capsule Communicator”, used to streamline the sharing of information.  

            One important result of the mission was propose a list of protocols for space food system:

- Protocols to build space food systems;

- Protocols to build greenhouses (structures and environment controls);

- Protocols to food cultivation;

- protocols for food system maintenance;

- Protocols to food harvesting;

- Protocols for food processing;

- Protocols for evaluation of contamination and plagues;

- Protocols to food preparation;

- protocols to process food waste (harvesting and cooking).

 

Related to food production system, was considered consider:

- Precision agriculture;

- computer learning (recognizing the plant’s development from Image reconnaissance. This will be very useful in greenhouses operating in space habitats and also indoor led lightning;

- Aspects connected to Artificial Intelligence to plants data analysis.

About meal consumption, was considered important: 1) keep a  variety shelf-stable ingredients with customized content time-efficient; 2) keep processed nutritive ingredients; 3) look for satisfaction about the meals; 4) Variety of food; 5) Try to prepare meals by different ways; 6) avoid menu fatigue (https://www.fooda.com/blog/restaurants-avoid-menu-fatigue).

Related to Powerstation facility was reflected about possible risks. Some equipment will be exposed to dust and cosmic radiation. The nuclear nucleus would be transmitting radiation to the crew? What is the frequency to develop maintenance activities?

            The launch center was considered the most dangerous place in the space habitat, because the dynamics of landing and also the refuel and the propellants storage.
