    disagreement space exploration is also survival the sun gets 10% brighter every 1 billion years, Got to move farther away. Also you showcase yourself as the most advanced country in the world by having a grand achievement like landing on Mars.

    1 billion years ago the only life on this planet was primitive pre-Cambrian crustaceans and armoured worms scavenging in the shallow coastal waters of Pangea.  When the sun finally starts to burn helium and enter her "red giant" phase (ie in about 5 billion years), we ain't gonna be around.  Even if "humanity" manages to survive in some form, we will be unrecognizable and utterly unlike our current forms, and we'll likely have exhausted the planets supply on non-renewable resources and energy.

    Humans ain't going anywhere. We were born on this 3rd rock, and we'll die here too.  Its probably for the best, as considering how we have collectively fucked up this planet, I'd hate to think that our species of barely evolved primates could someday be unleased on the wider galaxy...  Laughing

    BTW Mars is dead and useless. It may be possible from a cost/benefit POV to establish a limited toe-hold on that desolate crap-hole of a desiccated, frozen and essentially airless world (eg research base/s), but it will never be a 2nd home for humanity. There is more to life than having to invest 100% of ones energies in struggling to survive in a hostile environment with severely limited resources useful to sustain life. Oh, and forget about terraforming, its just a plotline in Sci-Fi novels. We can't manage to reduce our carbon footprint on this planet (where CO2 is just a trace gas), yet somehow we are going to massively alter the global environment of an entire planet??? Laughing Laughing Laughing

    I fully appreciate what you are saying... humans are terribly wasteful... but then we have been terribly spoilt.

    Actually trying to create habitations on Mars or the moons of other planets might be good for us as a species so we can see first hand what we have here with earth.

    Learning to not throw stuff away, to reuse it... to design stuff so that it can be used for other things after its primary use had been effected... imagine buying meat from the supermarket in a special plastic container that you can use to build a shed... weather proof and fire retardant... you could fill each section with unproductive dirt or loose gravel and rocks of no other value to you... with it being able to lock together you can stack it for transport and sale, and in your fridge, and when you empty it you have what is essentially a building block that could build a wall or small building or storage area on your property... you could recess them into the ground and use them to make an all weather path... with them being transparent you could use them for wind protection without making your back yard dark and gloomy.

    We don't need to go to the level of drinking our own wee, but stop polluting and work to find new ways of dealing with rubbish we can't recycle.

    There was a report on Technology Update on Russia Today that showed a furnace system for very high temperature destruction of rubbish, but I mean very high temperature and they actually used an electrical current to "process" the waste coming out the back end where carbon was captured and turned into a solid and trace metals could be separated and localised for reuse in rather pure forms... but making new plastic packaging is cheaper than dealing with old rubbish.

    The furnace would drive turbines and generate the electricity it needed to process the rubbish and have excess electricity to supply the local grid with power.

    It could deal with complex plastics and render them down to their core elements...

    A TV programme I really miss BTW.

    Perhaps even a very high temperature nuclear furnace could do double work destroying conventional rubbish dumped in land fills...

    Together with reducing rubbish creation in the first place these are steps we are going to have to take at some stage and such processing would stop all sorts of chemicals in land fills entering the water table and entering the food chain.

    The module ship "Progress M-UM" has passed vacuum tests

    At the Baikonur cosmodrome, leak testing of the Progress M-UM transport cargo module (TGKM) with the Prichal nodal module (UM) in the vacuum chamber of the assembly and testing building of site 254 was completed.

    In accordance with the work schedule, the specialists of RSC Energia and the Yuzhny compressor center performed a cycle of pneumatic vacuum tests of the Progress M-UM TGCM, which had been going on since October 26. The automated control of the high requirements for the tightness of the compartments and on-board systems of the ship in ground conditions passed without comment. Today TGKM Progress M-UM was transported back to the technical complex and installed in the dynamic stand for further pre-flight preparation.

    Universal nodal module "Prichal" designed and manufactured by RSC Energia im. S.P. Korolev is intended to expand the technical and operational capabilities of the ISS Russian Segment. The launch of the Prichal UM as part of the Progress M-UM TGKM using the Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle is planned for November 2021.

    Inspection of solar batteries of the Progress M-UM spacecraft-module

    At the technical complex of the Baikonur cosmodrome, pre-flight preparation of the Progress M-UM transport cargo module (TGKM) with the Pryhal nodal module (UM) continues. Today, in the assembly and test building of site 254, a planned operation of the control illumination of the solar batteries of the onboard power supply system of the module ship took place.

    To check the functioning of the solar batteries, RSC Energia specialists performed standard deployment of solar panels and their artificial irradiation with powerful lamps for the control reading of the parameters of the electrical circuit of solar energy converters. In addition, the preparation of cargo and equipment intended for delivery to the ISS in a sealed volume of the Prichal UM is currently being completed.

    Here is something positive... stumbled across this the other day.... a mythbuster evaluating the Soviet space suit in comparison to the US equivalent of the time period... quite nice when they set politics aside and just look at technology from an engineering point of view...

    so journos and some volcanic bacteria will survive after all? Razz Razz Razz

    BTW human civilization exists 5-6 thousands of years and you are and you are talking about well billions of years ahead ? ekhm

    Some of the basics for survival were developed very quickly but the new stuff builds on new stuff, so for instance you could probably go 1,000 years and find not much progress around the different parts of the world 5 thousand years ago, but now you could go 100 years and be amazed at the progress...

    150 years ago there was no fixed wing aircraft flight... within the life of one person we went from first airplane to first man in orbit and then first man on the moon...

    As long as we don't kill ourselves and if we could get rid of western colonialism and develop as an entire planet together rather than infighting and sanctions holding areas we don't like back and down then we could make some really serious progress...

    Or we might just develop nanobot sized robots that kill all living things that get out of control.

    Refueling of the cargo ship-module "Progress M-UM"

    At the Baikonur cosmodrome, in accordance with the decision of the technical management, the Progress M-UM transport cargo module (TGKM) with the Prichal nodal module (UM) was delivered to the filling station.

    Before being transported to the refueling and neutralization station, the module ship underwent control weighing, balancing and upon completion of preparatory measures went to site 31. This morning, specialists from RSC Energia and specialized enterprises of Roscosmos started work on refueling the Progress M-UM TGCM with fuel components and compressed nitrogen of the combined propulsion system's fuel supply system. After the completion of refueling operations, the module ship will return to site 254 for the final stage of pre-flight preparation.

    https://tass.com/science/1361095

    MOSCOW, November 14. /TASS/. Russia’s Energia Rocket and Space Corporation patented a suborbital spacecraft for flights of space tourists and high-altitude parachute jumps, the Federal Industrial Property Institute said in the invention patent (available with TASS).

    "The group of inventions pertains to control and design of multiple-use spacecraft with the vertical takeoff and landing, which can be used for space tourism, high-altitude parachute jumping and other things," the document says.

    The maximal spacecraft speed during descending will not be above 1 km per second owing to the design, developers say. "Therefore, thermal loads will be insignificant," they noted.

    The developed spacecraft will also make possible to increase the altitude of parachute jumping to almost 100 km.

    The designer's inspection and installation of the head fairing "Progress M-UM"

    At the technical complex of the Baikonur cosmodrome, pre-flight preparation of the Progress M-UM transport cargo module (TGKM) with the Prichal nodal module (UM) of the Russian Segment of the International Space Station (ISS) is being completed.

    Today, in hall 102 of the assembly and testing building of the site, 254 specialists from RSC Energia im. S.P. Korolev and specialized enterprises of Roskosmos conducted an author's inspection of the Progress M-UM TGCM, and then performed a set of technological operations to install the nose fairing (GO) as part of the assembly-protective block of the spacecraft-module spacecraft. After the installation and mechanical fixation of both fairing flaps, the electrical circuits of the pyrotechnic means of the HE release system were checked.

    To launch the Progress M-UM TGKM, a standard head fairing with a diameter of 4.1 meters is used, which protects the module ship from aerodynamic and thermal loads when the launch vehicle passes through dense layers of the atmosphere at the initial launch site.

    That is almost certainly a Fregat upper stage, maybe for the Luna-25 or some other launch. Luna-25 lander has not been sent to Vostochny yet.

    The State Corporation Roscosmos transfers about 93 tons of liquid oxygen daily for the needs of medical institutions in Russia. This amount of oxygen is enough to save about 9,000 covid patients with lung damage.
