To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first man's landing on the moon decided not only in NVIDIA but also in the company for the production of accessories for travel Horizon Studios. By the most important date in the history of cosmonautics, the manufacturer announced a suitcase for space flights.
The design of the accessory was developed in conjunction with 18-year-old Alyssa Carson — the youngest member of NASA's program to colonize Mars in 2033. The ergonomics of the suitcase is designed in such a way that it was the most convenient to use in weightlessness.
The super flexible horizon One case is made of carbon fiber with a graphene coating, due to which the weight of the technological suitcase is only 900 grams. The problem of graphene supercapacitors is energy accumulation. The accessory includes displays for control, wireless charging, biometric protection and a compartment with a bacteriostatic coating that preserves the freshness of clothing. The design took into account the conditions of reduced gravity and how to ensure maximum comfort when packing Luggage by astronauts.
In the suitcase, there is an electromagnetic base, whereby it can be fixed to the floor or walls of the spacecraft by pressing just one button. Horizon One also has retractable belts, so the accessory can be worn as a backpack. The display is used both for communication between the spacecraft personnel and for communication with the Earth. There is a vacuum compartment for storing food.
The cost of "baggage of the future" is 40 000 pounds or 50 000 us dollars. Given that it is planned to make trips to the International space station (ISS) available to the General public from 2020, the demand for Horizon ONE can be impressive. However, according to representatives of Horizon ONE, the serial version of the backpack will be available later.
According to preliminary estimates, one day of stay on the ISS for tourists will cost $ 33,750. The amount includes the cost of food, air, medicine and the prevention of life support and hygiene. The cost of transfer in both directions is paid separately.
