Russia will install a new lighting system in the space station to simulate day and night changes. According to the Russian "news" station on March 26, it was learned from the energy rocket space company that, in addition to the lighting lamps being used, the international space station will also introduce light sources with special function experimental process that can display force value, displacement and loading rate energy in real time
the company said: "in order to make it easier for astronauts to adapt to the environment of the Russian region of the international space station, we have developed a light source whose light energy can change with time. The dynamic change of light will imitate the earth day and night - morning, day and night."
the Institute of medical biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, which has participated in the test of the spacecraft lighting system to obtain surrounding words, believes that the installation of new lamps will have a positive impact on the health of astronauts
alexandersmolevsky, spokesman of the Institute, explained: "such illumination can enable people to acquire natural circadian rhythms, just like in the earth's environment." He said that lights modeled on earth's conditions will create psychological comfort and promote the regulation of work and rest rhythm
he pointed out: "even on the earth, people spend most of their time under artificial light sources, especially in winter when the day is short and the night is long. In addition to lamps that simulate the change of day and night, it is also necessary to supplement light sources that allow work to be completed at any time. Various systems will not exclude each other, but complement each other."
it is reported that the new lighting system is expected to be installed in the experimental cabin first, including the small research cabin. These lights will also be arranged in places that astronauts do not often go to, so as to create a breathable effect for them to go out during work.

NASA revealed that the relevant systems have been delivered to the space station. The agency said: "this led can repair sleep. Since the birth of TPU, it is destined to improve the overall state of the body through its medical use. Moreover, it consumes less energy and has a longer life than ordinary lighting lamps."
the energy rocket space company pointed out that it is continuing to manufacture new lamps and develop control instruments. The new system is roughly scheduled to be put into operation in the Russian region in 2019
