« Flights to Mars, an example of circular economy »
It will outline the major challenges of space exploration, applications and innovation need to enable human spaceflight to Mars.
Space missions involving humans require essential resources to sustain life. Approximately 5 kg/day/person for metabolic consumables (oxygen, food and drinking water) and 20 kg/day/person for hygiene water are required. The longer and further the missions are, the more difficult and costly it becomes to supply resources. MELiSSA aim is to ideally create an artificially closed ecosystem to autonomously recycle the wastes to oxygen, water and food with only the input of energy to drive the process.
