Scientific Issues

Scientific articles and issues on space colonization methods and theories and space exploration methods. The Space Colonization Journal publish articles depending on the number of submitted manuscripts, but not less than once a quarter (Please, see all changes here).

Our journal articles are indexed by the British Library like Nature which was indexed by the British Library.

Remark.  Are you confused about a name for our journal? Then we remind you that the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics have advanced even further. They have the Space Colonization Technical Committee. Moreover, NASA has a big base of bibliography on space colonization.

Abstract. It is proposed schematic design of unmanned spacecraft (SC) for the study of distant regions in the solar system, including small bodies of the Kuiper Belt, and its engine-power plant – electric solar sail (ESS). The use of such solar sails in Earth orbits is not expected because of “littered” near-Earth space. Proposed spacecraft […]
