It is time to return to the Moon, open Free Space and go to Mars

Posted by in categories: government, military, space

This revolution has already started, with wealthy citizens building their own space programs and entrepreneurs building spacecraft on relatively tiny budgets.


This time it must be about people, not governments. Rather than a centrally controlled quasi-military government race to space by two superpowers, we must enable the people themselves to go where they want to go, to do there what they want. If governments decide to return to the Moon — as seems to be the case — it must be to build villages, not bases, and to do it as rapidly as possible, as it needs to be an immediate challenge, not a distant dream. And if some want to go to Mars or mine asteroids, they need to be seen as part of a new frontier community. Thus, with both public and private players doing what they do best where they want to do it, we can make it happen far faster than many might believe.

Gold inflatable house for Mars designed by Hugh Broughton Architects and Pearce+

Posted by in categories: alien life, habitats

“On Mars, it would occupy one of the maze of lava tubes which run beneath the Martian surface,” the architects explained.


Hugh Broughton Architects and Pearce+ are creating Martian House, an inflatable building in Bristol, England, that will explore what an extraterrestrial house for life on Mars could look like.

The house, a collaboration with local artists as part of the ongoing art project Building a Martian House, is set over two levels, with the lower level designed to be built below the ground of the red planet.

All For One, Crew-1 For All

Posted by in category: space travel

NASA is flying astronauts to the International Space Station from the United States using commercial vehicles.

On Nov. 14, the first operational mission of this program, NASA’s SpaceX Crew-1 mission, is set to launch four astronauts on SpaceX’s Crew Dragon vehicle.

Watch as the crew explains what their mission is, how it is different from Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley’s Demo-2 flight, and what it means for people here on Earth. https://www.nasa.gov/crew-1

Scientists work to shed light on Standard Model of particle physics

Posted by in categories: mapping, particle physics

As scientists await the highly anticipated initial results of the Muon g-2 experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, collaborating scientists from DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory continue to employ and maintain the unique system that maps the magnetic field in the experiment with unprecedented precision.

Argonne scientists upgraded the , which uses an advanced communication scheme and new magnetic field probes and electronics to map the field throughout the 45-meter circumference ring in which the experiment takes place.

The experiment, which began in 2017 and continues today, could be of great consequence to the field of particle physics. As a follow-up to a past experiment at DOE’s Brookhaven National Laboratory, it has the power to affirm or discount the previous results, which could shed light on the validity of parts of the reigning Standard Model of particle physics.

Watch this electric wingsuit take flight at 300 km/h (186 mph)

Posted by in category: futurism

BMW i EV technology isn’t only working in two dimensions — now it’s taking to the skies in an electric wingsuit.

It’s not the most conventional electric flight, but that hasn’t stopped the concept from progressing to its maiden flight. The electric wingsuit project has been in the works for three years, since it began as just a concept in the mind of air sports pioneer Peter Salzmann.

With the collaboration of BMW i and Designworks, the group brought the electric wingsuit to life for Peter to test.
