Small hydrosystem low level - markup.jpgInitial research and development of the requirements for space food production will be conducted using Internet live stream techniques and simple robotic systems for measurement and control. Basic system is as derived from the marked up image above that was derived from the paper below.

Proposed R&D topics:

1) Robotics and AI to pursue of the Space Pioneer long awaited "mini-robot" project to teleoperate on-orbit cubesat level robots and eventually perhaps human-like zero-G companions like the ESA/Airbus Cimon):

2) Space Food Science as required for all things leading to the ability to sustain humans off-planet without a constant supply of freeze-dried military-style rations being sent to a "Space Force" like depicted below but mainly those ideas of aquaponics/hydroponics and the like coming from the 2017 BIS papers:

Some possibilities for simulation of greenhouse environs in Second Life (or other OpenSim compatible grids) can be found. A few are shared below:
