“In 80 days around the world” – was the slogan in the old history of the development of technology. Now this task is formulated so: to achieve 40 days of the planet Mars. It sounds unbelievable, nonetheless it is quite real.
New rocket technology must already exist!
Firm Ad Astra Rocket Company earlier NASA astronaut Franklin Chang-Diaz has developed a new rocket engine. Thus the electric energy and the magnetic field associated to the plasma that goes with a high fever. This beam plasma produces uniform and efficient cravings and needs in comparison with other types of engines only in a small amount of fuel.
With this new technology significantly increased the likelihood that a manned mission will continue to be our neighboring planet about 40 days is a small revolution in space flight.
The smallest distance between Mars and Earth is about 56 million km, the largest 401 million km. Continue reading
100 kilometers above the Earth’s surface (according to the international standards space begins at this altitude), speed – kmh 4000, which is 4 times the speed of sound, so it looks like a tourist flight into space, which you could see in sci-Fi movies or dreamed about since childhood.
Now the dream to see the immensity of outer space has already become a reality.
Who are those 5 people who first saw the Galaxy, read the article. We will also talk about the details of the flight and to quote the impressions of space explorers.
Space tourists – Dennis Anthony Tito

This reckless American with a decidedly non-American name proudly bears the title of “space tourist No. 1”. Anthony Tito is a multimillionaire and entrepreneur of Italian origin. Continue reading
National aerospace Agency is planning to expand cooperation with European institutions and private partners
The outgoing year of 2015 will also be remembered and new developments in the field of space technologies that promise to make orbital flights are cheaper and the space exploration more and more widespread. NASA successfully tests rocket engines, partially printed on 3D printers, the company Space X not only tested the truck Dragon, but was able to successfully return to land reusable first stage of Falcon 9 rocket. The first test of the private media was carried out by Blue Origin billionaire and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. However, for all the successes of private business projects like expeditions to Mars or building a new space station is impossible without the cooperation of different countries. And space – is an area where the US, EU and Russia cooperate successfully, despite the crisis in relations on the Ground. Continue reading
