Global Space Design Competition

Introduction

The Imperial College Global Space Design Competition (GSDC) was initiated by Dr. Randall S. Perry, a senior researcher at Imperial College and honorary chair of the British Interplanetary Society. Dr. Randall believes that with technological advancements, life in the International Space Station will mark a "new era for humanity." The challenge revolves around space, encompassing everything needed in a normal community, including structural design, infrastructure construction, AI automation and control systems, human engineering and medical systems, time, task management, and economic budgeting.

Within 24 hours of receiving the Request for Proposal (RFP) for the current space environment blueprint, students form groups to create virtual company headquarters with different roles such as CEO, engineers, bioengineering experts, designers, financial engineers, etc. These teams will conduct a series of studies on the construction and development of the International Space Station.

Imperial College London, as a globally renowned institution emphasizing practical skills and innovation, aims not only for students to acquire transferable skills for personal development but also to equip them for current and future scientific challenges. This challenge endeavors to nurture leaders contributing to societal development as international talents. This challenge encourages students to envision a more optimistic and proactive future, honing their innovation, scientific literacy, interdisciplinary prowess, and problem-solving abilities. Moreover, it provides comprehensive training in soft skills like communication, teamwork, and leadership.

Constructing Large-Scale Human Settlements in Space

Engineering students will primarily be responsible for the design of the entire space settlement, including the structural framework, selection of core building materials, as well as developing smooth operating systems and comprehensive emergency evacuation procedures to ensure the robustness of all life support systems.

The Indispensable Role of Mathematics in Space Exploration

Mathematics is crucial for observing, exploring, and understanding space. Students in the mathematics team will utilize their knowledge to predict and assess the best solutions for problems, such as modeling spacecraft trajectories, analyzing business decisions using Nash equilibrium game theory, selecting suitable suppliers, and creating possibilities for space settlement.

Crafting a Novel Extraterrestrial Financial System

Building a space city demands substantial investment and resource allocation. The financial department must judiciously manage budgets and propose economic growth strategies for the settlement area to foster its economic development.

Leveraging Biology to Support Life in Space

Humans, plants, microorganisms, and animals need methods for long-term survival in the extreme environment of space. Students will conduct essential biological research and technological development to enable organisms to repair damaged cells and remain immune to diseases in the conditions of microgravity and space radiation.

Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Space Scenarios

Students will design the robotic systems within the settlement, creating an entirely new communication infrastructure, providing emergency measures in critical situations, while ensuring that the design of the automation department meets the needs of other departments. They will also consider how to replace control systems with robots while reducing the number of robots.
