Building Blocks

Emerging sci/tech can widen the scope and reduce the cost of space missions, and transform impossible dreams into feasible, realistic projects.

Summary

New developments in science and technology have a potential to significantly widen the scope and reduce the cost of space missions, and often to transform impossible dreams into feasible, realistic projects. Distributed manufacturing promises low-cost crowdsourced space hardware, personal robotics and LEGO Mindstorms-like building blocks allow citizens to cooperatively prototype advanced robotic systems, and next-generation garage-tech initiatives are lowering space access costs. Blockchain technology is developing new ways to fund and collaborate on ambitious space projects.

Further ahead, research projects on innovative next-generation space propulsion systems, from light-powered sails to new propulsion methods based on exotic physics, promise game-changing breakthroughs. We intend to play a role in the development of all emerging technologies for the space frontier.


Discussion

In previous post (https://spacedecentral.net/forum/posts/space-decentral-its-first-own-launch), I'd suggested about Space Decentral doing a simple, first launch. Now, I suggest Space Decentral can innovate with... ...flying saucers. Yes. Not a joke. My message with details: https://etherscan.io/tx/0xe4f4b65b5361e292cd29fee01deb5559e4aed83ec84f21d40d7bf909b8649840
Solar PV is the most common power generation method in space, and chemical batteries are the most common power storage method in space. Let's discuss other possible means of generating and storing power for spacecraft and their payloads.
