In 2216, the earth faces resources depletion. Due to their strong surviving nature, ants are chosen to live aboard the spacecraft, exploring a new planet with human beings.
According to zoology studies, ant is believed as a typical social animal. They have separate roles and are good at cooperation. And their life span is from 3 to 10 years. In addition, they belong to omnivorous animals.
From the study of ants, scientists found that ant nesting behavior mainly depends on the density of CO2 as well as its own pheromone.It is proved that various density of CO2 in soil leads to corresponding layout of nest, thus ant will form a unique “architectural typology” in diffenrent lot. At the same time, the study discovered that by producing pheromones (a kind of chemical) , ants could communicate with each other to finish goals together.
The design of the spacecraft base on the nesting behavior of ants. In the first stage, we simulate their living habits . Point here are agents for ants. By using the stochastic system ，point can move randomly. When the distance between two points is with the margin(controlled by parameter), two point will share one moving direction.According to the final track of their movement, the space nodes of the spacecraft are generated （simplified track lines are divided into many parts with same intervals , then creating nodes ）, then making those nodes to form the basic spatial volume (by voronoi); then through the research of spacecraft’s shape relations between different stage of space craft (taking-off/landing/on-flight) and CO2’s density’s impact on nesting, by using field system, altered controlling points can determine the position of spacecraft in different stage.
