Centrivac Container

Here is the Centrivac-Centrifugal Vacuum Container I designed to help our Astronauts for storage in space. As there is no gravity in space, I used 2 different methods for storage. 1. Suction based liquid storage: Green cylinder stores liquids & Blue plunger when pulled, draws liquid in by creating vacuum. 2. Solid storage: a. The Green drawer box with blue magnetic drawer provides easy positioning where required. Rotating this moves contained grains/seeds to the end of box for easy collection. b. Green box half opened can be used for plant/insect gravity experiments. Slower rotation creates less centrifugal force simulating less gravity like Jupiter's moon Europa. Faster rotation simulates higher gravity of large exoplanets like Kepler-452b (Earth 2.0). When water poured in the open part of the box and rotated, water will reach to the end; just like it reaches to bottom of a container on earth.
