When living in space, having a magnetic JeffersTube system removes friction between the pressure seals. Within the JeffersTube structure, beyond the walls, several storage compartments are prepared to transport many things (oxygen, methane, water, sewage, nitrogen, hydrogen, electrical currants, etc.) in both directions. When a JeffersTube is positioned at a door, the chemicals pass into or out of holding tanks within the JeffersTube. When the JeffersTube is taken to another section, all the air tight seals must be activated before it is magnetically pulled back from the doors. It then begins to spin or the spin slows down, depending on what section it is at and where it is going. When arriving at the new section, all the plumbing, tubing, electrical and other connections are attached and all the air tight seals are set before the doors are opened. When the Jefferstube is travelling it is held and pushed magnetically. With magnetic manipulation, friction is removed, eliminating the need for bearings, grease and other lubricants.
