New Resource Portal

The Resource Portal is an easy-to-use, secure platform to help you get information when you need it.

We have re-branded our Help Portal as the new Resource Portal. In the Portal you will find two categories, 1) the Resource Hub and 2) the IT Support Desk. You can use the Resource Hub to find general information about the Company and policies, guides to our popular services and online tools, as well as search through a Knowledge Database covering anything from common IT issues to submitting your suggestions and feedback. If your query is about a specific technical issue, we suggest you use the IT Support Desk instead (see below). Both options allow you to submit your own questions or requests (tickets).

You will need to have an Atlassian account (free, online entity) to be able to check your ticket submissions. Learn more about these here.

Resource Hub

The Resource Hub is one of the many new platforms under our upcoming Academy site. The Resource Hub will become the place where you will find answers to your questions, submit your Academy PASS requests, follow up on your queries and communicate with us privately and securely. We are continually building our Knowledge Database, so if you find something that is missing, you can suggest a new page.

You can quickly access the Resource Hub database by pressing on the small question mark on the bottom right corner of your screen. You can type keywords relating to your query or submit a new request using the Ask a Question option.

Trouble getting started? Type in “Help” to submit a request.


IT Support Desk

If you are experiencing technical issues with any of services or platforms, you can instead use the IT Support Desk and choose from an extensive list of topics. The Knowledge Database in this Portal option is different from that of the Resource Hub and will mainly include technical and troubleshooting guides.

Civilian Space Protocol: A Worldwide Space Community

Space does not represent Escape, but Opportunity.

We are entering a time when a global response restores the strength in humanity, and when innovation can rapidly change our lives. We call on the citizens of the world to support the development of Space settlements, which must be built on the vision of civilians for supporting life and not solely for political or military campaigns.


Message from our Director on Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19)

With the rapidly evolving situation worldwide, Seanasol Research is following the developments very closely and we will be taking every effort to minimise the risk of transmission within the UK. It is our duty to act responsibly for the good of our community, and our colleagues, locally and abroad. We are suspending all face-to-face meetings and opting to move our discussions online via communication services. We are working together with our collaborators to establish a medium of communication that will mean it will be business as usual, while taking every effort to contain the spread of the virus.

Mars is still an environment

And an environment that should be protected. 

With growing interest of terraforming other planets, like Mars, and these opportunities becoming more realistic for companies worldwide, we still need to think about the implications of reshaping environments that could host human life. According the European Space Agency there may be over 120 million objects orbiting the Earth. This is waste over the course of 60 years. However, it is possible that these estimates are skewed against the rapid growth of rocket technology in the last twenty years. We can therefore expect that the rate at which space debris increases in volume will correlate with advances in technology and ambition to send more materials into space. 

The key issue here is about the infrastructure on Mars and the legislation over how human waste is managed. But it is also about the impact of the human presence; are we ready to take responsibility?

The Story of Seanasol

Seanasol Research is creating the niche for space expansion scientists and plant biologists and offers the gateway to low-gravity farming, because when we all move to Mars, everyone will be a farmer.

By taking on the challenge of terraforming Mars and building greenhouses there, we first need to re-think how we grow plants on Earth. The technology and innovation we create on Earth, for Earth, will be used to sustainably grow our food here as much as it will on other planets. That is why every effort we make to improve the way we globally grow our crops—across big cities and harsh environments—we are one step closer to bringing plants to space. 

Join us as we work with our communities, locally and abroad, and bring application-focused plant science into schools and universities.
