Flight to Mars

Review of the mission ExoMars-2016

March 14, 2020 the Russian and European space agencies signed an agreement that turned a large-scale European program for the exploration of Mars in a joint project. The program is divided into two stages, the implementation of which is planned for 2016 and 2018. The approach of the first date gives reason to discuss in detail the mission “ExoMars-2016” (ExoMars 2016).

For the first phase of the mission “Eczemas” are mainly responsible of the European space Agency. Russia will provide launch vehicle “proton-M” to launch spacecraft and some scientific instrumentation. Like many automatic stations, “ExoMars-2016” will consist of two blocks, orbital and ground. Is called the orbital module TGO Trace Gas Orbiter, a Satellite to monitor gases. The lander, known as EDM (Entry, Descent and Landing Demonstrator Module the demonstrator inputs, approach and landing), was named in honor of the Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli.

Gravity puzzle, or how space ships can cover vast distances in the Universe

It turns out that people have learned to make interstellar travel over huge distances. Previously it was thought that use gravity for space jump can only sverhrazdutoe of civilization, as fuel is always limited — it is impossible to bring as much as you want. However, science has leaped forward. Not everyone knows about what happened is a real space revolution.

This principle, the flights with the help of gravity, demonstrated in the sensational film “interstellar”. Read more about this amazing phenomenon tells Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist, consultant to the film (he invented everything that has to do with science) and the author of the book “interstellar. The science behind the scenes” .

The view from the ship, performing a gravitational slingshot

Though Director Christopher Nolan decided not to show the gravitational slingshot (maneuvers, which we describe below) in “interstellar” Kip Thorne was curious, as if they saw Cooper, the main character, piloting the “Ranger” to the planet Miller. So he is using his equations, modeled images for a camera that would Record with the Ranger, making the maneuver around the black hole before landing on planet Miller. Continue reading

In two years, tourists will fly into space on a balloon

Those who have always dreamed to visit space and go on an unforgettable journey that may be just once in your life, now have the opportunity to experience a new miracle of technology: a high tech space balloon .

The Spanish company plans within the next two years to offer services in transportation of passengers over long distances, which will significantly reduce flight time.

Space balloon ?bloon? – the idea of the entrepreneur Jose Mariano Lopez-Urdiales. the head of the company Zero2Infinity from Barcelona.

During the flight passengers will have the opportunity to observe the fantastic scenery of our planet. will experience weightlessness and will be able to eat, if you wish. Space tourists will travel along the edge of the Earth’s atmosphere in a special capsule, which seats 6 people – 4 passengers and 2 pilots .

The developers of the new vehicle say that the flight will be very quiet and smooth, and the passengers will have the unique opportunity to see the sun and the stars simultaneously. it is impossible to observe, being on the surface of the Earth. Continue reading
