    Space station

    Space station(Universe station,British: space station,dew: Orbital station,: Space station) Is地球 OfOrbitAbove etc.宇宙空間InA humanIs designed to continue living thereArtificial celestial bodyThat is.


    The space station is, in a broad sense,Space shipIt is a kind of form.However, unlike a manned spacecraft that functions independently, it does not necessarily have equipment for launching, propulsion, and landing with astronauts on board.It mainly refers to those designed specifically for long-term orbital life.To transport personnel and supplies between the Earth and the space station, manned spacecraft with the function to do soSupply shipIs required separately.

    All the space stations realized so far are on the earthSatellite orbitBuilt on top, it is aimed at scientific research, especially the effects on the human body during long-term stays in space.In addition, some were conducting military missions, and some were armed.

    Space is weightless, so the astronauts on board live in a floating state.The inner walls are filled with various devices so that there is no need to walk inside the ship.


    Former Soviet Union(AfterRussia), The space station was classified into the following three generations.

    1th generation
    A space station with a limited length of stay that is not expected to replace or replenish passengers.
    2th generation
    A space station that can be docked with a spacecraft with substitutes and a supply ship for supplies while the return spacecraft is docked, and can be operated at all times without leaving the station unattended.
    3th generation
    A large space station that has a large number of docking ports and consists of modules with multiple different functions.

    ChugokuSpace station testing machine (docking target machine).
    It is a test aircraft for the construction of a full-scale space station, and was positioned as a "target aircraft" because its main purpose is to acquire rendezvous docking technology.[1]..For this reason, astronauts could stay for a short period of time, but they had a small laboratory.2011Launched in February2012Manned operation has been carried out twice since June.
    Shenzhou 2013 was the last manned mission to dock and return in June 6.[2]Since then, unmanned operation has been continued, but it is thought that the function was lost in March 2016.[3]Re-entry into the atmosphere on April 2018, 4[4].
    ChugokuIt is a space station experimental aircraft, and is positioned as a space laboratory.2016It was launched in November.
    Initially, the No. 1 spare machine (8.5 ton class) andLong March 5There was also a plan to launch an enlarged tester (22 ton class) using a rocket, but in the end it was decided to launch an improved version (2 ton class) of No. 2 using the Long March 1 FT8.6.
    An unmanned refueling vessel with an automatic docking function developed based on the design of Tiangong-1 and a replenishment capacity of about 1 tons + 6 tons of fuel, which has been extended from No. 2 and improved experimental equipment.TianzhouA replenishment mission by Unit 1 is also envisioned.On October 10, the same yearKamifune No. 11Docked and manned operation began[5]..The following day, November 11th, Shenzhou 16 was cut off and manned operation was terminated.There are no plans for manned operation after that[6], Replenishment by Tenshu was also unmanned in April 2017[7].
    Tiangong-2 made a controlled fall into the South Pacific on July 2019, 7, and re-entered the atmosphere.However, it was still in orbit at the time of the first attempt, and there was some confusion, though not as much as No. 19.[8].

    1998It is still in operation since the start of construction, which began with the launch of. Consisting of more than 50 modules and parts, it weighs about 420 tons and is the largest man-made object in Earth's orbit.Even after the completion, the interior and exterior equipment has been updated / changed and modules have been added at any time. Initially, the operation was scheduled to end in 2016, but extension to at least 2024 is being considered.
    • BEAM (Similar to Genesis, a test module connected to the ISS by Bigelow Aerospace.)
    January 2016Falcon 9Was launched by.After that, it was installed on the ISS and succeeded in expanding to the planned size in May the following year.[10].. Astronauts also set foot in June, but the main purpose is a two-year endurance test, which is basically unmanned except for maintenance.[11].

    2021The first module "Tenwa" will be released on April 4th.Long March 5 Bwas launched and construction began.The first spacecraft heading to the same place was a supply ship launched on May 5th of the same year, and successfully docked on the 29th of the next day.[15], separated on March 2022, 3, and made a controlled fall into the South Pacific on March 27, 3.[16].First manned mission in June 2021Long March 2Fmanned spacecraft launched inKamifune No. 12and returned on September 9 after carrying out a long stay.[17]. On 2022 July 7 (CST) the second module Monten docked[18].

    Planning stage space station

    RussiaPlanning space station.2024It is planned to be built independently by Russia by the end of the ISS operation.
    Several new modules will be launched, and the modules will be docked in sequence as part of the Russian module of the ISS. Become. Although it is smaller than the ISS, it maintains the same functionality and aims to be a miniature version.
    US-Russia Joint New International Space Station
    AmericaRussiaThe successor to the ISS, which is seeking to be built between them.There are reports that an agreement has been reached between the two countries,CrimeaConflict between the two countries over2014 Crimea crisis), And the situation is in flux. It is expected that the space technology standards will be unified between the two countries more than the ISS, and that it will be the base for the Mars manned exploration mission.

    Future space station

    outer wall

    All space stations operated during the 20th centuryRigid bodyHowever, since the 2000s, the development of an inflatable space station made of soft material (which has the strength of concrete after expansion) has been underway.This type of station has the advantage of providing a large living space for weight and price.The test space station launched by Bigelow Aerospace has an inflatable structure, and is being considered by public space development agencies such as NASA.[9][20].

    Artificial gravity

    Space stationfree fallBecause it is inside, the inside is as it isWeightless state(Actually microgravity).Therefore, by living for a long time筋肉Is waningboneからcalciumHas an adverse effect such as melting.In addition, in a weightless state, things will be scattered if care is not taken, so it is necessary to give sufficient consideration to the handling of things, especially liquids and powders.Therefore, a space station has been devised that can create an environment similar to the one in which gravity is generated by using centrifugal force.

    At the experimental level, a module that creates gravity by centrifugal force even at the International Space StationCentrifugeWas scheduled.This was actually being developed in Japan, but it has not been put into practical use because the US side that operates it decided to cancel it in 2005.After that, a new evaluation experiment of artificial gravity will be conducted at the International Space Station.ISS Centrifuge DemonstrationIs also envisioned.

    SFThere are many such facilities in the work, and a wheel-shaped space station centered on the axis of rotation has been devised. Sci-fi movie "2001 Space JourneyThe space station that appears in 』is a typical example.This type of space stationSpace colonyIt also overlaps with the living space that uses centrifugal force as pseudo-gravity.
