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.

Probably, for this reason, we seek cheaper ways of delivering goods or passengers to low earth orbit. Continue reading

Space: Science and technology

“It’s huge”

About the discovery of the ninth planet of the Solar system two astronomers from the California Institute of technology in Pasadena became known on January 20. One of them — the native of Russia Konstantin Batygin — spoke about the search for Planet X, the difficulties with the title the new heavenly bodies and unsolved mysteries of the Solar system.

What is an open planet?

Konstantin Batygin . She falls into the category of dwarf planets. This celestial body is quite massive. Our model gives a mass of about ten earth, this planet is just a giant. Now it is defined as a celestial object whose gravitational field is dominant in that part of the Solar system.

In General, there is not even a question: it’s a planet or not. We know about it, because its gravity affects the orbit of the farthest objects in the Kuiper belt. The very mathematical modeling relies on the fact that this planet has enough mass for gravity to dominate in the Solar system. Continue reading

In 2014 space tourism will become free

But only 25 people winning perfume brand AXE

International perfumery and hygiene brand “AKS” (AXE) announced the launch of a global campaign, during which there will be a selection of candidates for space flight on the ship the American company Space Expedition Corporation (Space XC), the Agency reports ITAR-TASS. For 25 people, selected to participate in the international space program launched AXE in conjunction with Space XC, which since 2008, specializes in projects related to space tourism, space flight, scheduled for the first quarter of 2014, will be completely free.

To date, the last (as the astronauts, “extreme”) is a space tourist canadian billionaire and founder of world famous Cirque du Soleil, guy laliberté, who in the autumn of 2009 on the Russian ship “the Union” took part in the expedition to the International space station (ISS). Ticket to space “round-trip” cost him $ 35 million. Since the first successful flight of a tourist wishing to see the space is steadily increasing. Grows and the cost of this tour: starting in 2001, when in outer space, visited the first “Amateur” – the American businessman Dennis Tito, the fare has doubled – from 20 to 40 million dollars.
