October 21, 2010 1 comment

U.S. space agency (NASA) will “fly” any photographic images that they upload photos on the site of Face in Space to the International Space Station.

Campaign “Face in Space” was part of NASA’s tradition to bring souvenirs out of the scope of the Earth’s atmosphere, as well as take advantage of the opportunity before the plane Discovery and Endeavour retired.

As quoted from the Telegraph page edition Tuesday, June 8, 2010, carrying souvenir or a memento to the vacuum has become a tradition of NASA since long ago.

Since 1997, the mission of the shuttle carrying the signature of school students in the program called “Student Signatures in Space”. At that time, the Cassini spacecraft carrying a diskette containing the signatures of the students into the orbit of Saturn.

While the Phoenix Mars Lander carrying a DVD containing the signatures to the north pole of Mars and the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter plane carrying a microchip to the moon.

However, this is the first time the public are invited to submit photos of yourself each and then taken to outer space.

People aged over 13 years can upload photos and select one of the last two shuttle missions. After the shuttle returned, they could print some sort of “flight certificate” signed by the commander of the mission.

China is planning to build its own space station. This in order to explore alternative housing for people other than planet Earth.

So said the two Chinese astronauts, Nie Haiseng and Zhai Zigang, who was come to Indonesia. Zhai, who is the first Chinese astronaut to walk in space (spacewalk), said that the technology currently being piloted China is a stepping stone towards the next stage is even greater.

“Space Travel is very important to mankind, our next program is to create its own space station,” Zhigang said at a press conference in Jakarta, Thursday, October 14, 2010. Press conference was held in the upper deck satellite tracking ships China, Yuanwang 5, which docked at the Port of Tanjung Priok.

Zhai said the space station to be built in China will perform the test cell and the conditions in space. This trial aims to determine whether there is a condition or place that allows humans to survive in outer space. This is based on the fact the more dense the earth by human beings and the need for another place to live besides Earth.

“The people of the Earth more and more and one day no longer enough room to live. That is why mankind must find new place to live in space, “said Zhai, who came out space by using the plane Shenzou 7 in 2008.

China is a country with the most advanced space technology after the United States and Russia. However, according to Nie, this is not a competition that will lead to enmity. All countries in the world have an obligation to cooperate in space exploration.

“It takes the cooperation of all countries in the peaceful use of outer space for purposes of exploration and exploitation for the benefit, advantage, tranquility and welfare of mankind,” said Nie.

Asked about his experiences in space, the two astronauts claimed to be in space without gravity is very pleasant and very comfortable. In zero gravity, the human body like no mass and can float in the air.

“The hardest is probably the must adjust to the conditions of outer space. When the body can adapt, we must return to earth, and we must re-adjust ourselves to the condition of the earth, “said Zhai.

“Outer space is where the dreams you want to visit all the people, conditions are very different from the earth. However, we are very proud to represent our homeland, this is the highest award from us to China, “said Nie, who had orbited for four days in 2005.

The arrival of the two astronauts followed by satellite tracking ship merapatnya Chinese Yuan Wang 5. Tech vessel with a length of 222 meters and weighing tons 25ribu is tasked to monitor and track the presence of China’s satellite. This ship has been escorting the success of space missions such as outer space flights Shenzou ship and the launch of Chang’e satellite.
