EARTH
SPACE

Co-creating the future of Earth,
food and human life from space.

In regards to life in extreme environments such as food crises,
resource depletion, disasters and pandemics,
how should we, humanity act and respond to the challenges we are facing.
Simply pursuing novelty or efficeincy may not be enough to solve these problems.

On the other hand, as technology has been rapidly progressing,
and we are taking on the reality to live in space.
Yet there are number of proplems to solve: limited food and resources,
mental and physical health problems in such an isolated environment.
We believe that there will be a path through the accumulation of
challenges toward the difficult problems we face.

Food solutions to advance our lives in space and on Earth.

We truely respect the people of the past and their wisdom,
and the power of co-creation, we will accelerate the expansion of
living sphere into spaceand solve the issues on Earth.

We believe that our footsteps will be the path for the future of humanity.

A co-creation program that
organically brings together professionals
in various fields to solve food problems
on Earth and in space

Solving problems of food on Earth
The ultimate Resource-cycle Society Well-being society
Utilization of enhancement and integration of technology and knowledge for space → ( Research and Development - Business - Cultural Creation - Human Resource Development ) ← Tackling global challenges by bringing back ultimate food solutions to Earth.

LONG TERM SCENARIO

SPACE FOODSPHERE's long-term scenario for the year 2100.
The ultimate food solution implemention to society both
on Earth and in space, achieving sustainability for humanity.

Food Solutions

[ Food production / Resource Recycling
/ Ecological System / QOL etc ]

2030
Contributing to the achievement of the SDGs - Deadline for achieving the SDGs - Lunar surface demonstration / few people staying on the Moon
2040
Expanding to Solutions for Global Issues - The real transition to the space age - 1,000 people living on the Moon.
2050
Highly circular maritime / sand cities - Building and expanding human survival bases - 1,000 people living on Mars.
2100
Dramatic Restoration of the Global Environment - Establishment of terraforming technology and departure to an exoplanet - Achieving Mobile Space Colony Acceleration of exoplanet exploration

The Future Milestone
MOON 2040

Conceptual plan for a lunar base capable of 1,000 people on the Moon by 2040s.
We will identify the challenges of living in extreme environment of space
and co-create the ultimate food solution.
