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

Plutonic love

One hundred years ago the world was captivated by the idea of the existence of a ninth planet in the composition of the solar system. But today, in the year 75-year-old.

…Pluto, astronomers around the world have for that “little” romantic feelings…

Planet X

The existence of a ninth planet in 1905, predicted the American Percival Lowell, famous for his search for a civilization on Mars. According to the calculations of Lowell, beyond the orbit of Neptune is another large celestial body, having a direct connection with the solar system.

Lowell noticed deviations in the motions of Uranus and Neptune from calculated orbits and decided that this is due to the influence of more distant planets. The object of his hypothesis, Lowell called planet X, but its “real” opening it, alas, did not survive. Continue reading


Giant spaceships approach the Earth?

The recent statement by scientists from SETI (the project engaged in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence) is not a joke stirred the public. Once the U.S. government decided to stop funding SETI, the researchers of this organization released information that they were able to detect several huge objects of unknown origin near the orbit of Pluto is rapidly approaching our planet. Assume that these objects are concentrated in the field of length 150 and a width of 30-50 miles. Also refer to the coordinates with the location detected UFO:

19 25 12, -89 46 03

16 19 35, -88 43 10

Scientists are unhappy that the government is trying to hide such important information from people.

There are rumors that these ships are here to save humanity from the terrible disasters that can occur on Earth in the near future, performing the role itself is a kind of Ark. There is also the view that we are on the verge of star wars, and these objects have come to enslave the inhabitants of the Earth.

Many reputable scientists say that this story is nothing like another invention of the SETI, but really it’s just piles of debris. Continue reading
