Own Space Center: The Big Step is China
The name of the film is ‘Waterworld’ (Waterworld 1995). The whole world has been submerged in a natural disaster. Most people have died. Survivors have built a floating colony on the water. Fighting in such a catastrophic time but does not stop!
As soon as the opportunity arose, one colony attacked another colony, snatching away the valuables of survival. Not everyone lives in the colony. Some move around independently on their own. Such a movie hero. He lives in a special boat. Don’t go to any colony if you don’t need to. The boat is his home.
Drinking water is a rare commodity in Waterworld. Water all around, but saline. Special devices are used in the colonies to make this saline water drinkable. Water is traded there at the price of gold. However, the director has shown the miracle of a small but smart device in the boat of the hero of the film. The device purifies the urine left by the hero and makes it drinkable. The protagonist does not have to think much about drinking water.
Let’s come to reality from the world of film. Chinese scientists have made a lot of such devices. This device will also purify the urine left by human beings and make it drinkable. They began designing a prototype of such a device in August 2012 and completed it in early 2013. Scientists later experimented with multiple prototypes based on that design. Eventually they succeeded. An effective device is made, which can be used to purify human urine and make it drinkable.

As easy as I said, the matter was not so easy at all. Because, this special device is made for use in space. Scientists have had to keep in mind the special space environment and various complexities. Eventually they made the device by solving all possible problems. It is able to excrete 80 percent of water from human urine.

Simply put, this device can produce two and a half liters of pure water per hour from urine. This water will be purer than pure drinking water in China. This water will be drunk by astronauts working in space and will do other work. Interestingly, this water will also produce very valuable oxygen.
The main part of the spacecraft that China sent into space on April 29 has a variety of equipment attached to it. This device is one of them. China has sent astronauts into space several times. They have also been in space for a certain period of time. But then there was no such instrument.
The astronauts may not have needed to fetch potable water from their urine. But spacecraft is a different matter. Here the astronauts have to stay for months. As a result, Chinese scientists have found such a device to be essential.
China has sent the core of its own space station into space via the Long March 5B carrier rocket (equivalent to a 16-story building) from the coastal province of Hainan. It is now orbiting the earth in a specific orbit about 400 kilometers above the earth’s surface.
China’s space center is named ‘Tiankong’, meaning the Palace of Heaven. And the main part of the space center is called ‘Thianhya’, which means the harmony of heaven. This part is 18.6 meters long and 4.2 meters in diameter. Its weight is equal to 15 proof size automobiles. It has three sections, the connecting section, the life-support and control section and the resources section. The Thianhaya part is the heart of the space center. This is where the astronauts will live and where various scientific experiments will be conducted.
Thienhey is designed to allow astronauts to stay there relatively comfortably for long periods of time and to conduct scientific experiments. There is about 50 cubic meters of roaming space for them. When all parts of the space center are connected, the orbit will increase to 110 cubic meters. This means that astronauts will then be able to use 110 cubic meters of space for their own work. For comparison, China’s Shenzhou manned spacecraft had only 6 cubic meters of space for astronauts to roam.
There are separate quarters for each astronaut in Thienhua. There they will be able to work, sleep, eat and meet other personal needs. There will be a fixed bed for each astronaut. The bathroom will also be separate, a facility that Chinese astronauts will enjoy for the first time. Air conditioners, microwave ovens, refrigerators, water containers and treadmills have been installed in Tianhe to make the position of the astronauts comfortable. There will also be a special mobile phone for each astronaut, with which he will be able to communicate with the people of the earth, as well as control the various equipment of the space station from a distance.

As mentioned earlier, when the rest of the spacecraft is connected to Thienhe, the space for astronauts will increase to 110 cubic meters. The other two parts are two space laboratories. Adding these two parts together, the total weight of China’s space center
