Japan plans to transport Humans from Earth to Moon and Mars via Train, Check Station and Train names

Japan plans to transport Humans from Earth to Moon and Mars via Train: Researchers at Kyoto University, Japan in association with Kajima Construction, have revealed plans to build an artificial space colony with bullet trains that will connect Earth, Moon, and Mars.

This plan might shake up space travel. Japan has made plans to build a glass habitat structure that would copy Earth’s gravity, atmosphere and topography to make us feel like home.

How will this work?

The interplanetary transportation system by Japanese researchers is called ‘Hexatrack‘. Hexatrack would maintain a gravity of 1G during long-distance travel to lessen the effects of extended exposure to low gravity.

The trains will also have hexagonal-shaped capsules called the ‘Hexacapsules‘ with a moving device in the middle.

According to the proposal of the Japanese researchers, a mini-capsule with a 15-metre radius will link the Earth and the Moon. For connecting moon and Mars, a 30-metre-radius capsule will be needed.

The capsule will use the kind of electromagnetic technology used by the Maglev trains in Germany and China.


The station on the moon will use a gateway satellite and will be known as Lunar Station, the train station on Mars will be called Mars Station. It will be situated on the Martian satellite Phobos.

According to the Human Spaceology Centre, the Earth station will be called Terra Station and will be the successor space station to the International Space Station (ISS).

The space train, known as Space Express, would operate on standard gauge track.

The Living Structure

The researchers aim at building a narrowed living structure in the shape of a champagne flute with artificial gravity, green areas and water bodies, and complete with public transportation. The structure will be known as ‘The Glass’.

Low gravity is a major concern as it can affect reproduction. The researchers at the university aim at curbing this concern. The structure will create artificial gravity capable of generating gravity that would be equivalent to Earth’s environment by utilising centrifugal force caused by the rotation of moon and Mars in space.

How much time will it take?

According to Japan’s The Asahi Shimbun, the plan might take a century to be a reality. However, researchers are aiming to build a simplified prototype version of the Marsglass and Lunaglass by 2050.
