Mission to Mars

A person is attracted to space. He wants to figure out where it came from, if not from monkeys, and is there intelligent life on other worlds. And don’t always need to look prohibitively far away, if you planet “on all occasions”. Mars became the object of attention long before the exploration of space, and it is popular with filmmakers who want to make fiction.

But it was a fantastic part of the question this film will have problems. The Director was not able to find and catch the right rhythm and the right mood. The trouble is in the details. It begins with the earthly scenes where the astronauts rolled up a party on the occasion of the mission. Then the viewer is immediately thrown on the surface of Mars, where already carried out some work. Even really clear what they’re looking for. In movies about space and traveling through it is always interesting to watch the preparation. As the astronauts enter the ship, as the ship takes off, passes the atmosphere, overcomes a great distance, and were approaching their destination. Well and then — as scientists begin their work, take their first steps in uncharted territory, etc. Continue reading

The bombardment of comets

Possibly, comets brought water to Earth

To see exactly what is in the comet, it is necessary to analyse its substance with the help of different high sensitive devices, bringing samples to Earth. But aboard a small spacecraft such devices are difficult to place, because the size of the station Stardust 1,7×0,7×0,7 meters – about the same size as the Desk. How to take a sample of matter, flying from the comet’s nucleus at high speed? Space standards Stardust was moving slowly relative to the comet, about one and a half times slower than fly around the Earth artificial satellites. However, even this speed was several times greater than that of the bullet, the station flew over one second 6 km from the Contact of dust particles with the container of solid material at this speed (more than 20 thousand km/h) would have led to their strongest heating and evaporating. The only way to mildly catch and stop these dust particles, turned out to be a trap made of unique material – aerogel, which was established in 1931, but the big distribution has not received.

Do I need to be perfectly healthy to fly in space?

The main problems during space flight are considered motion sickness, fatigue, dehydration, loss of appetite and back pain

The astronauts can perform on the International space station not more than six months. And for good reason.

The loss of muscle and bone mass in zero gravity during this time is so great that the continued presence in space for humans is not possible.

Future space tourists will not go through the same tough training as cosmonauts and astronauts – how flying can affect their health?

In an article published by the British medical journal, argues that the district doctors in British clinics need to be prepared for the fact that in the near future, their patients will begin to wonder whether their body to move space travel.

Only a handful of doctors have sufficient knowledge in the field of space medicine to give expert advice. Continue reading
