In-Situ Rock Melting Applied to Lunar Base Construction and For Exploration Drilling and Coring on the Moon

557 visualizaciones

Publicado el

An excavation technology based upon melting of rock and soil has been extensively developed at the prototype hardware and conceptual design levels for terrestrial conditions. Laboratory and field tests of rock melting penetration have conclusively indicated that this excavation method is insensitive to rock soil types, and conditions. Especially significant is the ability to form in-place glass lining or casings on the walls of boreholes, tunnels, and shafts. These factors indicate the unique potential for in situ construction of primary lunar base facilities. Drilling and coring equipment for resource exploration on the Moon can also be devised that is largely automated and remotely operated. It is also very likely that lunar melt glasses will have changed mechanical properties when formed in anhydrous and hard vacuum conditions. Rock melting experiments and prototype hardware designs for lunar rock melting excavation applications are suggested.
