HOW APOLLO 11 CELEBRATES 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF LANDING ON THE MOON!! (252 hits)


For Immediate Release From CNN!


On the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, two astronauts and a cosmonaut launched to the International Space Station.

Expedition 60 is the space station mission that began June 24 and will end October 3. Space station crews are referred to as expeditions.

They launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 12:28 p.m. ET. They will dock at the station at 6 p.m. and enter the space station at 8 p.m.

They will be joining Roscosmos Expedition 60 Commander Alexey Ovchinin, as well as NASA astronauts Nick Hague and Christina Koch. They arrived at the space station in March.

This is Morgan's first spaceflight; he was selected as an astronaut in 2013. The West Point graduate also serves as an emergency physician with the US Army. He will enjoy an extended stay on the station and return to Earth in April 2020.

Parmitano will be going up to the station for the second time in his career. He was selected as an astronaut in 2009 and was assigned as a flight engineer for the Italian space agency's first long-duration flight mission to the International Space Station. He spent 166 days on the station in 2013, participating in two spacewalks and docking four spacecraft.

When Ovchinin returns to Earth, Parmitano will become the first Italian astronaut to take on the role of commander.

GREAT....further Earths' Orbit Research is STEM driven and a key to Success

...As a young Engineering student at the University that invented the exterior of "space vehicles"

that allows reentry to Earth's atmosphere.....without destruction

...I DREAMED as JFK said to "go to the moon and stars" of becoming an Astronaut....

I made to the Air Force..... and then I learned Science..........and society

*****************************************************************************************************************

I am not a Medical Doctor but, in my opinion, Space Flight out of Earths' Orbit is IMPOSSIBLE AND an

anti-Science, anti-Biology endeavor for ..........humans....

**************************************************************

#1-Space is dangerous and expensive

Some of the perils are obvious: hard vacuum, extreme cold, and unpredictable blasts of radiation from the Sun.

......Other perils are less conspicuous....

The effects of prolonged weightlessness on the human body, for example, can be slow and subtle --

https://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2001/ast01oct_1/

Weakening of the bones due to the progressive loss of bone mass is a potentially serious side-effect of

extended space time. Studies of cosmonauts and astronauts who spent many months on space station

Mir revealed that space travelers can lose (on average) 1 to 2 percent of bone mass each month.

"The 1 to 2 percent per month loss is an estimate of bone loss -- an average value,....

".... on six month flights have lost as much as 20 percent of bone mass throughout their lower extremities."

"Bone loss of this magnitude leads to a significant increase in fracture risk, which may be as much as

five-fold that expected with normal bone mass on Earth," he added. "A limb fracture involving, say,

one of a six-person space crew could seriously compromise a mission's objectives."

#2-I DO NOT BELIEVE that man went to the MOON.....a LIE and a way for some to get RICH off of taxpayers
