Long-term manned space missions is now impossible

The answer to the question of how in the coming years will be Russia’s contribution into the process of full exploration by the inhabitants of the Earth, not yet clear

Before the first manned flights into space, many physicians feared that in weightlessness the astronaut may be a different disease: ulcers and kidney stones, sudden weight loss, softening of bones, decreased muscle tone, the development of sea-sickness, disturbance of the orientation and other misfortunes. But in reality it turned out that astronauts in General are more or less able to adapt to microgravity and not to experience any serious discomfort, especially in flight conditions, the duration of which does not exceed 6-10 months. In order to reduce harmful effects to a minimum, the astronauts, while in orbit, exercise, diet, etc.

But how will affect the human body long-term space flight, lasting several years, physiologists have collected insufficient data.

In light of the active conversations and different messages about the future of manned human flight to Mars, which include the experiment “Mars-500” and recent statements by President Barack Obama . this information is very necessary. Continue reading

Great Hiking on the moon

China completed test heavy carrier rocket “Changzheng-5” (“long March 5”), which will be the basis for its lunar missions. Federal news Agency – at what level is the celestial space.

About the end of the test “Changzheng-5” according to the Chinese media. The development of these rockets was originally planned to be completed in 2008, but funding was only allocated in 2007. In the end, the first tests began in September of last year, and the first test flight is scheduled for September. In 2017 it is planned with the help of this rocket launch to the Earth return vehicle “Chang’e-5” to collect the local soil.

“Changzheng-5” refers to the basic Chinese family of rockets, named in honor of the legendary long March of the Communists in the Civil war in China. “Changzheng-1” was created on the basis of a ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead “Dongfeng-4”, launched in 1970 the first Chinese satellite. In fact, from this time begins the history of taikonautti – space Chinese.

However, prior to the 1990-2000-ies the development of the Chinese space was neither good, nor bad. And only in the last 10-20 years there was a serious success. But the speed of development was downright cosmic. Continue reading

The history of Chinese Astronautics

Actually, I got my hands on a smartphone that fully supports navigation using the Chinese navigation system of the Big dipper). On the market, these smartphones should be out in mid to late 2014, but that’s not it.

I thought about how this system works, who and what drove these satellites into orbit and decided to write a brief overview of the history of Chinese Astronautics. Anyone interested — welcome under kat.

Why does the Chinese space program is called chiconautla? Do not suffer, the people of Thailand and Taiwan is not to blame. Just on the Chinese space sounds like (Taicang), which translated means “Too empty”.

The date of birth of the Chinese space can be considered on 16 November 1957. It is in this day was founded by (China national research Institute on rockets) .

Then, of course, he looked a little different.
