Space tourism

Oddly enough, uzivanjem space now do not state more passionate about the military and scientific programs, and commercial enterprises. Transparent and their goal is to satisfy trivial human curiosity and to make money. In the near future flight into orbit would cost no more than a two-bedroom apartment. And perhaps less,

Commercial space flights to the ISS became a reality in the beginning of the new Millennium. Since 2001, the Federal space Agency jointly with the company Space Adventures has performed eight successful launches, sending into orbit seven people (American billionaire Charles Simonyi has been to space twice). Among already visited the ISS tourists the founder of the famous Cirque Du Soleil, guy laliberté, and in 2014 plans to go into space singer Sarah Brightman (she has become the second female space tourist, and was the first American of Iranian descent the Anusha Ansari). The pleasure of staying at the ISS for cheap, to put it mildly, not true — originally, it treated those wishing to see the space at $ 20 million but since 2007 this figure has grown and has reached $ 40-50 million Not so long ago became known the price of the spacewalk is $ 15 million but so far this “service” exists only in draft form, which will be implemented no earlier than 2015.

As we began to sell the dream

Once manned flight into space, no one could even imagine. World for mankind was limited to the planet Earth, but people constantly stared at the sky and tried to find answers about how our world and what is human in him. And let with each new step-opening, we received more questions than answers, but the thirst for knowledge never left us.

The first man in space was Yuri Gagarin. His famous “Go!” the whole world knows. But it became possible only thanks to the joint efforts of residents of large countries, countries that have chosen the path of communism. The reader may object to me putting in on the space race, the fact that the US (a capitalist country) quite a bit late on the moon and that they were the first.

So be it. But in the USA before it was not conducted military operations, from which a significant portion of the country lay in ruins. Therefore, you shouldn’t have neither the time nor the funds to restore infrastructure. And what about the irreparable loss of millions of lives and unborn children. The consequences are simply unimaginable number. However, the Soviet people were able not only to overcome all the difficulties in rebuilding the country, but also to win the space race. This is the greatest event in the history of mankind was made possible not only because of the work, funds or tenacity, these resources have capitalist countries. It became possible because of the belief that Bylaw people, the great goal for which there are no barriers in the universe. Continue reading

Space tourism

Money can’t buy happiness, but money brings great opportunities. Just ask multimillionaire Dennis Tito, who became the first space tourist in 2001, or the owner of Cirque du Soleil, guy laliberté, who became the first clown in space in 2009. If you have some cash, “Roscosmos” there will be time for your dreams.

But what about those of us who are not international circus magnate or an adventurer with the money? Will space tourism ever be a reality for us?

Companies such as Virgin Group owned by Richard Branson, say Yes. Even if you already have $ 20,000 in cash, you can book the 200,000-dollar ticket on SpaceShipTwo (which passes successfully tested). In the next few years it should become the first commercial space ship.

Each flight can accommodate six passengers and will last two hours and a half in suborbital space (110 kilometers above the Earth). Once there, passengers will be able to freely float in zero gravity and enjoy the fact that the CEO of Virgin Galactic George Whitesides calls “transformative experience”. Continents, oceans and clouds will float from the bottom, and overhead will be boundless space. Continue reading
