The principle of operation

Obviously, enough people settled on the planet. Now he rushes into space to other planets, other worlds. Me some time ago, suddenly puzzled question that, maybe, the desire to space as it is genetically built into the human population. Give this thought to those who insist on the theory of extraterrestrial origin of life. Perhaps this is an argument in the dispute. Life originated in space and was for the planet entered, so man tends back. The truth is, other living creatures, tearing at the limits of Earthly comfort I do not know.

One way or another, but wanting to hit the road for a week not in Komarovo, and the ISS, among the millionaires abound. It is a pity that the station still more and to carry back only the tourists are not going. Today for money on the ISS managed to get only five people. The other fly to work. This is a troublesome thing – busy with tourists, but as it turned out very favorable.

Sport in space begins with a football in zero gravity

So, according to the company, Space Island Group, might look like orbiting the stadium. The game tourists in the ball channels could broadcast live .

Weightless — what is not a reason to invent a whole new class of sports? After all, space sports of one type or another, more than likely. Especially due to the rapid development of the private aerospace business and the increased number of space tourists. Is it any wonder that competition in zero-gravity invented today?

If we talk about professional cosmonauts or astronauts, sports games in orbit for them is obvious. Given the fact that in the future the crews of the expand, and the missions will be very long, like missions to the moon or Mars.

A peaceful “battle” with each other under conditions of zero gravity could help space travelers not only to diversify the flight, but also to maintain health, physical and mental. But for space tourists sport in space can be a great added attraction. Continue reading

Space probe approaching Pluto after 9 years

The NASA probe New Horizons close to Pluto and will be able to enter the planet’s atmosphere in July of this year

The ship, which was launched back in 2006 has come nearer to the outer body at a distance that allows you to make high-quality pictures of its surface.

NASA may have to adjust its trajectory in case of detection of unknown cosmic bodies, reports Russia Today .

Apart from the modern equipment on Board the spacecraft is an urn with the remains of the discoverer of Pluto Clyde Tombaugh (1906-1997), CDs with a message to aliens, U.S. coins, flags and postage stamps. On Board the SPACECRAFT is the CD 434 738 names of people who participated in the campaign NASA “Send your name to Pluto” (Send Your Name to Pluto).

Task apparatus is the study of the atmosphere and the ground layers of Pluto, moreover, New Horizons will create a map of the surface of the farthest planet in our System. Continue reading
