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

Soon everyone will fly into space

Long-standing plans by British billionaire Richard Branson about the organization of space flights is nearing realization. Recently, the head of the Virgin group of companies presented the public with aircraft with a rocket engine called SpaceShipTwo, which will be used for commercial flights into space.

“I know that there are literally thousands wanting to be in space to be able to look out the window, admiring the beautiful Land,” — said the billionaire. At the presentation of SpaceShipTwo in California, he said, dreamed of going into space since then, as seen on TV landing on the moon. Presents the aircraft will undergo tests over the next 18 months, before the first tourists will be able to take a short excursion outside the Earth’s atmosphere. About three hundred people have already applied for the flight is $200 thousand during the six minutes of weightlessness.

SpaceShipTwo, built from lightweight composite materials based on carbon and is equipped with a rocket engine on a hybrid fuel. The basis for its development was the project SpaceShipOne — aircraft, lifting into the air booster. He became the world’s first private space ship and made a series of flights in 2004, reports the BBC . Continue reading

Scientists warn that sex in space is dangerous for health

Future space tourists are already thinking about what it would be like to have sex in zero gravity. However, scientists hasten to cool the ardor of the lovers: sex in space could harm the health.

Future space tourists are already thinking about what it would be like to have sex in a vacuum. However, scientists hasten to cool the ardor of lovers.

According to biologists, to conceive a child in extraterrestrial environments will most likely not succeed. Space hostile to earthly love, the scientists shrug. Moreover, they say that sex in space could cause irreparable harm to human health. These words are confirmed experimentally. However, I was involved in a potentially dangerous study not people, and plants.

Their cells are damaged when the gravity changes, proved the researchers. In particular, when too high or too low gravity to the negative impact of exposed pollen tube is the vegetative cell of the male zarostka in flowering plants. Gravitational changes are not the best way affect its development and functioning.

In addition, the space environment is threatened intracellular circulation of the plant. Continue reading
