A design firm has unveiled ambitious plans for Nüwa; a sustainable city on Mars that could accommodate up to 250,000 inhabitants is largely underground cave systems.
Nüwa, named after the mythological Chinese goddess who melted five stems for sturdy society foundations, will be housed in the rocky face of dangerous cosmic and solar radiation to the residents.
When you opt to travel to Mars, a one-way ride to Nüwa, a 25 to 35 square meter residential unit, complete accommodation access, life-support and food services, and ‘a compulsory working contract to dedicate between 60 (%) and 80% [%] to the tasks assigned to the community’ will accompany your ticket. The design studio behind this idea is based on a report by ABIBOO.
What are people going to need to survive safely on Mars? By planning for ways to protect people from radiation, ABIBOO has closed the largest requirement. (Without irradiation, but that’s to solve another race, we need some similar deus ex machina defensive system for people to get to Mars.) And residents must be able to generate food to support it—the idea to bring all the necessary food from Earth is just too difficult and dangerous.
ABIBOO has been collaborating with the SONET network—a team of researchers headed by astrophysicist Guillem Anglada that has uncovered the former Planet Proxima-B—and graved Nüwa from a Martian cliff named Tìmanna. to solve both problems (i.e. Crops and residence). The cliff belongs to the Tharsis region of Mars. The group plans both to shield people from radiation and to expose them to direct light to crops by selecting this specific site.
People can only visit the more exposed surface in the Cliffside terraces if necessary. You can travel outside the cliff by train and bus and by massive lifts inside the cliff.
Wide pavilions were built in the valley at the foot of the cliff for social interactions. The pavilions were built to provide a clear view of Mars’ landscape with translucent skin. These cupolas have huge overflying canopies to protect against external radiation. The material from drilling in the cliff is dumped on the roofs and radiation-protected. At the same time, this approach guarantees even large-scale recyclability. The valley has unique facilities that connect with the space shuttle as well as housing hospitals, schools and colleges, sporting and cultural events, shopping centers, and train stops, ABIBOO said.
According to ABIBOO, the city can only imagine the Earth’s supplies to become viable for a limited period. With such designs, the margin of error associated with certain features is worth considering. What if 250,000 people live in the area, but half are temporarily disabled by an Earth-filled illness? There is a point of equilibrium in which everyone must do his part to ensure, for example, that all people eat.
Nüwa’s plans cover both agricultural and crop plants. In common areas separate from the terraced dwelling, the resident may socialize. The style is well known for people living in mountains, where terraces and heights are nothing new. However, people normally choose to live in a flatter place while the mountain terrain becomes a terrace. (If you are not sure why to consider going from home to home when the cliff is side by side.
Whilst Elon Musk said that by 2050, an ABIBOO spokesman had plans to build a town on Mars, he said that Popular Mechanics had not had an accurate year before construction started, despite false rumors of construction starting in 2054.
Most housing proposals on Mars chose to occupy underground caves for residents. It is novel to position people on the side of a mountain, but it is a perfect way to combine the advantages of an underground shelter without becoming a mole.
Like Musk’s talk about a Mars settlement, it all looks amazing about Nüwa, but the X-factor of “sustainability” still is a big question mark. Writes by ABIBOO:
“This urban development of the Mars continues and develops on a viable and sustainable basis after an initial short period of capital investment and supply from Earth. The entire material needed to create the town is obtained on Mars by carbohydrate and other minerals.” The shuttles to and from the Earth are available for ABBOO residents every 26 months, with starting windows varying from 1 to 3 months. However, even if drugs or other resources from the earth are needed urgently, there are at least a few months to wait. This is the longest journey people have had since the earliest days of the sea voyage thousands of years ago.
