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

The largest planet of the solar system

Saturn through a telescope Saturn Has 22 satellites.Some of them external, some internal. They have names of ancient heroes, for example, Mimas, Enceladus, Pandora, Epimedii, Tethys, dione, Prometheus. The most interesting of them is the Janus – he is the closest to the planet, Titan is the largest satellite in the greatest Solar system in mass and size. The film is about the Saturn, All the moons, except for Phoebe, turning in the forward direction. Uranus Seventh planet from the Sun in the Solar system, so poorly lit.

It has a surface in the form of ice, also covered with strips cracks.Through a telescope it is well visible that plusnet Saturn is stronger than Jupiter. Their origin is still a matter of much controversy.

Some researchers believed that, under the balls of ice, where the water is not frozen, can be a primitive life. Far few places in the Solar system awarded such an assumption. In the future, scientists plan to send to the satellite of the Jupiter drilling rig. However, each planet is similar to the following.About Uranium Uranium is In narrow planetary rings.

Space tourism — “Go!”

Ever since then, when the first man left the Earth (and more importantly, successfully got back there) managed a space ship (if someone does not know, this was in 1961), people around the world believe in his imminent future happy in all the visible universe long predicted by science fiction writers: “Yes, with the current rate of technological progress here is just a little magician, the scientists, and we instead of Turkey and Egypt for the weekend to fly to Mars and Saturn!”. And still have been right. Almost.

Of course, before the mass of schoolchildren on tours of the milky way matter has not yet reached, but a single much well-off citizens with great pleasure leave the limits of the Earth, and then talk about how they are there was interesting. God willing, someday we all be vouchsafed, therefore, examine the issue more closely.

Who? Where? How much?

If you have lying around in the cupboard a couple of tens of millions of dollars, then you are in principle nothing to worry about — today can call “Roscosmos” or Space Adventures and sign up for space trips — or rather, for a flight on the Russian spaceship “Soyuz” to the International space station (ISS).
