At any given time before, during or after a space journey there are 1001 things that might go wrong. Because of this, astronauts are relentlessly focused and prepared for every single variable that might turn the wrong way and cause a catastrophic scenario when they venture through the orbit. However, what if 20%, 50% or even 100% of those potential risks could be quarantined and therefore avoided?
What if space shuttle pilots and all the other team members could rest assured that the potential scenario of failure is mathematically impossible and that they are bound to have a safe travel experience? For the average person who does not yet have enough understanding or doesn’t have “all the dots connected” about digital twins, the effort to accurately predict the future and eliminate failure conditions surrounding space travel might seem futile, however, it is more than possible to accomplish.
By correctly utilizing virtual twin simulations and fully digitalizing space shuttles, their stations and final destinations along with the journeys themselves, developers will be able to manufacture hundreds (if not thousands) of scenarios with different variables included in them to witness what will happen if different factors and variables are in place. Now, although it sounds complex, imagining how this technology would work in reality is not “rocket science” (well, technically it is because we are talking about space after all but you get my point) and it can be illustrated with a simple example:
As with any industry out there, development is a crucial process that determines the progress of any organization out there, however, it requires capital. But what if we can form our actions in the real world by trusting a virtual one? Mistakes in space shuttle development can cost hundreds of millions, however, by utilizing digital twin simulations, development work would become frictionless, the airship prototypes would get beta-tested in virtual programs and built in the real world, with no failure conditions included.
