They too mapped Sa Grutta exploitation the paradigm CaveSniper surveying dick, which allowed them to return measurements wirelessly. The Read more [...]
Researchers say a next-generation spa causa could admonisher astronauts' wellness and use their soundbox passion to powerfulness electronics.Highly-developed at Kansas Posit University, the spa causa would merged biosensor engineering to living racetrack of astronauts' vitals, such as eupnoeic order and muscularity activeness.The reseachers, who admit students and professors, are too sounding to use the temperature remainder 'tween soundbox rut and the place wooing's chilling clothe to mightiness radios and former electronics.Batteries are too severe to berth in an spaceman's oxygen-rich infinite Read more [...]

In this photo you can see far in the Arizona desert, where in the 1960s, NASA has made more than 354 explosions to create a surface with craters, identical to the surface - the Moon. The very surface where supposedly we landed Americans on the moon ...Commenting on the NASA photos, reports that the simulated lunar surface area and includes 354 of the crater was created for training of American astronauts to land on this moon.American astronauts honed there skills to navigate the terrain similar to that on which they were to disembark. NASA used a ton of explosives to create a copy of the lunar Read more [...]
ISS astronaut Romanenko, asked a question about whether the astronauts saw Chelyabinsk "meteor" from space, astronaut does not understand what was going on and starts talking about an asteroid flyby of which was known. Correspondent asks, and said that the question relates to what happened in Chelyabinsk. Astronaut, mumbles something and wrinkled, and then issues - "We learned in an hour after the event on the news and internet. Well knocked a couple of windows in the gym, which are small destruction." A couple of windows ...

Scientists believe that in 5-10 years, each astronaut will implant the special medical nanorobots that will protect him from possible harmful effects of long-term space. First of all, it concerns the cosmic radiation, which causes abnormal growth of the spine and accelerate the development of Alzheimer's disease.
A couple of years science fiction writers could only imagine such technology, but for the time NASA scientists have already seriously thinking about the possibility of the use of technologies such as ultra-thin nanoskafandr, space nanolift etc. Also quite a lot of attention paid Read more [...]
12/06/2012 China's leadership is prepared to grow four kinds of vegetables on Mars and the Moon for the establishment there of "ecological life support system" for the astronauts, according to local media citing the Center for Research and training Chinese astronauts in Beijing. According to reports, have already passed the required tests in Beijing, and now plan for a tank volume of 300 cubic meters. m, where it is expected, will grow four kinds of vegetables (which is not specified). With their help, the astronauts will be able to produce its own supplies of air, water and food Read more [...]
July 21, 1969 ... The day man first walked on the lunar surface. Space mission of Neil Armstrong (Commander), Base Aldrin and Michael Collins reached on board the "Apollo 11" satellite. The task of the lunar mission was to land on the moon in the western part of the Sea of Tranquility. Followed by the landing of astronauts famous phrase: "The eagle sat on the moon." No less famous was another phrase said by Neil Armstrong after the first steps on the moon: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." The remaining calls astronauts were also Read more [...]
This was reported by a former NASA engineer and spaceflight Clark MakKlillend (McClelland), who worked for the space programs of the "Mercury" in 1961 until the start of the International Space Station. He was personally acquainted with the astronauts from the first day and has some amazing firsthand accounts and their own UFO sightings.
On his website, Clark made an official statement. In particular, he writes:
"I, Clark C. MakKlillend personally seen alien in height from 8 to 9 feet in my 27-inch video monitors while on duty in the Kennedy Space Center, Launch Control Center Read more [...]
Back in 1968 American science fiction writer Philip K. Dick wondered, Do Androids dream of Electric, and wrote about this whole affair. Exactly 45 years later, the same question could attend Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata, however, it is unlikely that he will have time to write a novel.
In the summer of 2013, engineers at Tokyo University, in collaboration with a Japanese advertising companies want to send to the International Space Station (ISS) with Wakata robot android KIBO («Hope"). The robot will help the astronaut to communicate with Earth.

In space, full of radiation. Escape from it is impossible. Imagine that you are standing in the middle of a sand storm, and all around you constantly circling vortex of pebbles that hurt your skin. Would look like the cosmic radiation. But the problem is that, in contrast to the pebbles and pieces of land ionizing radiation does not bounce off human flesh. It passes through it, like a cannon ball penetrate the building. And this radiation causes considerable damage.Last week, researchers from the Medical Center at the University of Rochester, published research showing that long-term effects Read more [...]

According to scientists, if spending a few months on board the International Space Station in microgravity, you can temporarily increase by around 3%. However, reports Infuture, growth in the world remains the same.Scientists and doctors still do not know the exact mechanism of increasing growth in space, but it is not a hypothesis, but a fact. Indeed all the astronauts on board the ISS are a little higher than they are on Earth. Currently, the phenomenon being studied."The first time we will use an ultrasound to find out why space in microgravity human spine increased by a total of 3%" Read more [...]

Some phenomena, vision and terrestrial observers, and down stations, and astronauts "Apollo", due to the presence in the tenuous lunar atmosphere dust particles. But no one can explain how they got there. May shed light on the probe LADEE, which will launch in August 2013.You have heard about the new restaurant on the moon? Lovely food, but no atmosphere.
This joke for decades, and, admittedly, it is outdated. In the future, NASA sends probe to orbit the Moon, which will gather information about the atmosphere of our satellite, including the situation near the surface and environmental Read more [...]
