One of the Most Ambitious Space Projects in the History of Human Civilization

21 September 2020

In mid-September 2020, the III International Scientific and Technical Conference “Non-Rocket Near Space Industrialization: Problems, Ideas, Projects” was held in Maryina Gorka. It can be stated that one of the most ambitious space projects in the history of human civilization is originating in the Republic of Belarus.

The scientific program of the conference included plenary sessions, poster presentations, and panel discussions. The total number of reports is 33. Scientists, researchers, and inventors from BSU, BSTU, BelSUT, NAS (Belarus), Lomonosov Moscow State University, Tomsk Polytechnic University, RUDN Academy of Engineering, Institute of Earth Sciences of St.Petersburg State University, Kazan Federal University (Russia), Crimea Research Institute of Agriculture, Zhytomyr National Agroecological University, National University “Zaporizhzhia Polytechnic” (Ukraine), Space Research and Technology Institute (Bulgaria), Jagiellonian University (Poland), TRIZ Academy (Germany), South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences (Finland), RMIT University (Vietnam), Sharjah Enterprises American University (UAE), UN Commission (USA), as well as from Estonia, Italy, India, Great Britain took an interest in the conference. Both presence and online participation were provided for.

The host of the conference is the international non-profit foundation EcoSpace.

Partner companies: Astroengineering Technologies LLC, Unitsky String Technologies Co., Unitsky Farm Enterprise.

The event was held to summarize the results of scientific, research, and scientific-practical work carried out in scientific and design organizations, design offices, and engineering companies, as well as carried out by individual researchers and enthusiasts in the following areas:

– solution of global, including environmental, problems of our time by geospace means;

– social, economic, legal aspects of the implementation of the non-rocket near space industrialization program;

– prospects for engineering and technological space exploration within the framework of the EcoSpace program;

– features of the organization of large-scale cargo and passenger flows along with the route Earth – Near space – Earth;

– principles of creation, design, theory, and calculation of the transport and infrastructure geospace complex - Unitsky's general planetary vehicle (GPV);

– design features, the search for solutions of biological and ecological nature to ensure the sustainable functioning of an enclosed local ecosystem and the preservation of biodiversity on Earth, the development of territories with unfavorable conditions for human life, as well as to create a large-scale model of a future human settlement in outer space - a residential space cluster “EcoCosmoHouse” (ECH);

– features of creating an equatorial linear city as an integral component of the TransNet string road network, as well as the ground infrastructure of the GPV and its take-off and landing overpass.

Following the results of the III International Scientific and Technical Conference “Non-Rocket Near Space Industrialization: Problems, Ideas, Projects”, the organizing committee and participants made important decisions. There are some of them:

  1. To note the extremely high importance of the further development of large-scale exploration of near space and the reload of the earth’s industry to the space vector of development.
  2. To note the significance of the planetary-scale geospace project – GPV - as the only possible transport and logistics solution from the engineering point of view for the industrial exploration of near space and the implementation of the EcoSpace program.
  3. Considering the scale and significance of the reports presented at the conference, to note the high priority and obvious relevance of the development of cooperation between the world countries, international organizations, leading world companies, research organizations, and universities to implement the EcoSpace and SpaceWay programs.
  4. To note that, at present, humanity is under the conditions of a “civilizational technogenic fork”, according to which, we all really have a choice now. Or, in two generations, the traditional vector of technogenic development will lead our children and grandchildren to the point of no return for earthly civilization as a whole, its degradation, extinction, and death. Or, we are implementing the EcoSpace program: we will take the industry into near space, solve all environmental problems on Earth and turn the planet into a blooming garden, where up to 25 billion people can live comfortably and safely.
  5. To publish a collection of scientific papers based on the reports presented.
  6. To conduct the IV International Conference on the Problems of Non-Rocket Near Space Exploration in 2021 in the Republic of Belarus.
