Asteroid belt ‘megasatellite’ could home humans around dwarf planet Ceres

The researchers said 500 people could live comfortably in a single square kilometre, “like in the Netherlands”.

But perhaps their most significant goal is for the station to act as a stopping point from Earth and into the wider solar system.

Ceres is more than 500 million kilometres from Earth, and a base there would get humans closer to the gas giants of Jupiter and Saturn.

The team said in their paper: “When first encountered, weightlessness causes nausea and vomiting for some people.

“However, in a settlement where people experience occasional weightlessness from childhood, it is plausible to think that they can tolerate it well during short trips.
