About the Course
There are 7 lessons in the English Version of "Survival in Space".
From the angle of requirements of mankind’s development in space, such as short-term manned spaceflights, low-Earth orbit space stations and Lunar / Martian bases, we will illustrate the importance of life support technology for the implementation of space missions.
We will introduce principles of existing life support technologies, development of life support technologies for long-term survival of mankind in outer space in the future, and achievements made by the mainland of China in this field.
Taking "Lunar Palace 1" life support system as an example, we will explain scientific principles of the Bioregenerative Life Support System, key technologies and ground applications for long-term survival of mankind in outer space, and knowledge for protecting mankind physiological and psychological health.
We will guide you to think about the life support system on which humans depend to survive on the earth – the earth ecosystem, from the scale of the universe. You would thus understand operating principles of the earth’s ecosystem and their importance for mankind survival and development.
