Therefore, support systems must be fully autonomous.
Complete regeneration of water and air without dropping over the side of carbon dioxide and hydrogen is technically solvable problem.
Life-support systems of the current generation, to reduce the consumption of consumables used multiple, cyclical treatment of water and air.
Products coming on board, mostly freeze-dried, diluted with water, restored from the air and waste products.
Micro-grazing provannid gastropods (typical of chemosynthetic communities) are associated with plesiosaurid skeletons in the Upper Cretaceous deposits of Hokkaido, northern Japan.
The cancellous bones of the examined plesiosaurid bones contain a ubiquity of iron sulfides within the bone trabeculae, which provides evidence of anaerobic sulfate reduction of the bone lipids.
Shrimp paste is a complete food that can form the basis of the diet for the crew.
For a more varied diet for shrimp paste can be grown rapidly growing animals.
The growth rate of bacteria is very high, and the coefficient of absorption power when hydrogen is much more than plants.
The high biological productivity of the bacteria, allows to obtain the required amount of biomass in a small volume without taking specific modules for space crops.
