The author proposes and investigates his old idea – a living human in space without the encumbrance of a complex space suit. Only in this condition can biological humanity seriously attempt to colonize space because all planets of Solar system (except the Earth) do not have suitable atmospheres. Aside from the issue of temperature, a suitable partial pressure of oxygen is lacking. In this case the main problem is how to satiate human blood with oxygen and delete carbonic acid gas (carbon… Expand


Inflatable ‘Evergreen’ dome settlements for Earth’s Polar Regions
Sustaining human life in the Earth’s Polar Regions is very difficult especially during wintertime when low air temperature, strong wind and “whiteouts” make normal existence dangerous. To counterExpand
