Humans have been exploring the universe for decades in search of innovations, crucial answers of our very own existence, the outer life, and betterment for life on Earth. The current uprise in Earth’s population, and the climate changes have changed how we think about outer space. The world as a unit is now trying to reduce the GHG-emissions on Earth, as well as looking at the possibilities for humans to live on other planets in the future.
Mars & Beyond
Making humanity multiplanetary can become a necessity in the centuries to come. World Space Agencies are already looking at this scenario. For Instance, Space X and Elon Musk’s vision is to establish a permanent human presence on Mars. One of the hurdles is the CO2 levels. The atmosphere of Mars is primarily composed of 95 % CO2. The CO2 concern is also something we struggle with here on Earth.
Turning Carbon Dioxide (C02) into EcoNano
Bergen Carbon Solutions has developed a method which takes some of the CO2 out of Earth’s equation, and turning the CO2 into a high compatibility material for the space industry.
Bergen Carbon Solutions’ technology converts CO2 into advanced next generation materials, namely carbon nanofibers (CNF); EcoNano. EcoNano is a one dimensional nanoscale material that has outstanding mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties. EcoNano is stronger than steel, lighter than plastic and conducts electricity better than copper.
EcoNano in Space
EcoNano is a promising material with favorable properties when it comes to the space industry. Currently, weight and material are some the biggest hurdles in space equipment, and EcoNano could make many of today’s products lighter and stronger, such as:
- Astronauts Suits
- Defense Equipment
- Space Communication Equipment
- Space Stations
- and more…
