Asteroid belt ‘mega-satellite’ could harbor humans around the dwarf planet Ceres – study | Sciences | New

Ceres, which is 590 miles (950 km) in diameter, is the largest object in the asteroid belt – a ring of space rocks located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. A team of scientists has now proposed to build a “mega-satellite” orbiting Ceres that could house humans. The researchers, from the Finnish Meteorological Institute, […]

Humans could move to ‘floating asteroid belt colony’ home to millions within 15 YEARS
