On April 12 the whole world celebrates Day of aircraft and Astronautics.
This is a special day – a day of triumph of science and all those who are today engaged in the space industry.
Russia marks cosmonautics Day in commemoration of the first space flight by Yuri Gagarin. The holiday was established by decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR dated 9 April 1962.
April 12, 2010 isposed 49 years since the first flight of man in space. And did it our compatriot Yuri Gagarin. 108 minutes spent in space opened the way for other space explorers. For a short period of time since the first flight into space man has visited the moon, explored almost all the planets of the Solar system, but the first flight was the most difficult and dangerous.
But the confidence and optimism, the desire to conquer space overcame all obstacles. Addressing all the inhabitants of the Earth before launch on April 12 1961 Yuriy Alekseevich said, “Dear friends, relatives and strangers, countrymen, people of all countries and continents! Continue reading
Technological evolution completely transform the tourism, flights and airports
Today time travel are pure fantasy, which can be seen in science fiction films.
However, according to some scholars, within the next 80 years, the fantasy can become reality, writes the Daily Mail .
MailOnline Travel predicts the future of travel: from biometric scanning to hotel rooms, managed from your iPhone or iPad and teleportation – the tourists will not only travel the world, but also to go to space flights.
Co-founder of the largest airline tickets search engine Skyscanner Gareth Williams believes that in 2030, travel arrangements will be as easy as making a purchase in the online store: a trip to plan a simple and quick online service in two clicks. He also adds that it’s possible that in 15 years for tourists will be available exclusively functions as a virtual guide embedded in a watch or small ornament, is able to travel with someone and to conduct tours

My opinion on this subject the correspondent was expressed by one of the leading experts on space travel, Professor Alexander Bolonkin.
Recently the journal Geophysical Research Letters has accepted for publication an article in which a group of researchers suggests that the currently popular space tourism can be dangerous for climate of the planet. Although it is not yet printed, about this study already talking in many leading online publications. All of the authors of the publications seem to fully support the researchers ‘ view regarding the danger of space travel.
What a project to promote space so scared of scientists from the Aerospace Corporation in Los Angeles (USA)? The fact that, in their view, flying back and forth space “shuttles” are left in the upper atmosphere is a lot of soot, which is a product of incomplete combustion of nuclear fuel. A group of researchers led by Martin Ross built a computer model of such contamination, based on information from business plans for space tourism in ha by 2020, and emissions estimates developed spacecraft SpaceShipTwo company Virgin Galactic’s.
