Deimos Mission – Vertical Cylindrical Cased Tunnel Shaft Excavations
For Solar and Galactic Cosmic Radiation Protection

In another recent essay, I have described in moderate detail the value and procedures for establishing a continuous human presence on the Martian moons Phobos and Deimos, as complementary precursor efforts for the permanent development and colonization of the surface of the planet Mars. The orbital geometries and masses of the moons are leveraged to produce a quick and easy method of solar energy asset deployment and electrical power distribution across the entire surfaces of both of these moons. In this manner electrical energy may be transmitted from the illuminated areas on the moons, to areas that are not currently illuminated, including under the surfaces and in the interiors of the moons. This essay will expand upon one specific aspect of this Martian Moon development and colonization effort, that of providing the immediate capabilities to excavate and case deep vertical cylindrical mining tunnel shafts directly under a landed Deimos Colonial Transport spacecraft, on the very first mission to these moons. Such a construction can then provide massive and immediate shielding against solar proton events and galactic cosmic radiation, the single most urgent problem confronting large scale space development. The excavating design process and the resulting hardware is universally applicable to asteroid mining.

This will be a couple of pages. You can follow it as I write it, but the work on this is already done.

This will be next year’s NIAC submission I guess.
