Modeling Trees with a Space Colonization Algorithm.
Abstract We extend the open leaf venation model by Runions et al.[RFL* 05] to three dimensions and show that it generates surprisingly realistic tree structures. Model parameters correspond to visually relevant tree characteristics identified in landscaping,
Fanon and space: colonization, urbanization, and liberation from the colonial to the global city
Abstract. Stimulated by recent controversies about the headscarf in France, this paper offers a fresh look at the spatial and urban dimensions of the work . While there is widespread agreement (which preceded the so-called spatial turn
Space rapture: extraterrestrial millennialism and the cultural construction of space colonization
The theme of total planetary destruction appears repeatedly throughout American fiction, film, and culture. In one of the first comic book panels featuring the nearly omnipotent Superman, a rocket hurtles out from Krypton, a planet in the throes of destruction.Just
Space size relative to prey width (Sp/Py) influences macro faunal colonization of artificial structures
ABSTRACT: We tested an index of habitat complexity, Sp/Py (inter-structural space size/prey body width), by deploying artificial structures on a coral reef near Dibba, United Arab Emirates. The structures were polyethylene tube bundles with tube diameters of 3, 12 and
Implications of Outside-the-Box Technologies on Future Space Exploration and Colonization
Abstract. In general, planning for future manned space exploration either to the moon, Mars, or an asteroid has depended on a somewhat linear extrapolation of our present technologies. Two major prohibitive cost issues regarding such planning are payload lift
This year we have seen considerable interest in and tangible steps toward space exploration from the international community. The US effort is built on the Vision for Space Exploration, with the view to revisiting and establishing a presence on the Moon by 2020.
SPACE COLONIZATION, A STUDY OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND
Abstract This paper steps back and looks at the fundamental economics of people working (and playing) in space, and shows scenarios that should result in successful colonies on the moon. The basic premise is the ever increasing cost of industrial metals necessary to
Space Colonization Using Space-Elevators from Phobos
Abstract. A novel approach is examined for creating an industrial civilization beyond Earth. The approach would take advantage of the unique configuration of Mars and its moon Phobos to make a transportation system capable of raising mass from the surface of Mars
Plant stress response genes and possible uses in genetic engineering for space colonization and terraforming process in Solar System
ABSTRACT Plants are recognized as part of life domains on earth that play important roles in many aspects. Plant capability to thrive in stressful environment as result of responses in physiological adaptive and morphological aspects is helpful for phytoremediation and
Beamed Energy In-Space Transportation System for Near Space Colonization
Abstract Space tugs are multi-use spacecraft that attach to and propel other spacecraft or payloads, modifying their orbits. Tugs have the potential to support a wide variety of space mission types, such as retiring geostationary communications satellites, moving cargo to Pain is a complex experience and activity. While there is a tendency to think of pain primarily in biomedical terms, it transcends that category. Most basically, pain is an ethical issue that cultures reckon with, explain, justify, alleviate, and cause. The world's religions and
Embryo Space Colonization to overcome the Interstellar Time/Distance Bottleneck
Embryo Space Colonization, defined as the use of the embryos of humans (and other species) as interstellar colonists, has a long history in fiction. Stapledon (1) described the last Human species as launching embryonic forms to avoid the death of the Sun as long
SPACE EDUCATION, CREATIVITY AND COLONIZATION
Space education is based upon the belief that everyone should understand and appreciate the enormous impact that space is having and will have upon our lives. It is imperative to be aware of the potential benefits that will arise from space exploration and colonization.
The Colonization of Space
Abstract. The colonization of space implies an adaptation of both physical and cultural type. The human species is characterized by a great adaptive capacity that, in a basically extreme environment, reveals all its plasticity. However, this capacity must be aided by appropriate
Protecting Cultural Space or Urban Re-colonization
Abstract The formation of arts and cultural districts or clusters may be organic or planned (or a hybrid) but they often result in dislocation of those outside the district's dominant cultural group or those without escalating economic capacity.
