Sending life to the stars

Reposting with an update

Interesting article from Science daily on Sending life to the stars. Looks like we are getting closer to being able to propel objects to near to the speed of light.

Granted this research they are looking at 20-30% but this is a big step forward.

Original Mastodon post

Happy do discuss on Mastodon, Discourse or at the Paignton Library STEM Group meetings.

Lots of life which can survive in very harsh conditions.

A video produced for the Hubble traveling exhibition Our Place in Space in 2017, zooms from Venice out through the Solar System, the Milky Way, the Local Group and into the cosmic web

Can The Human Body Handle Rotating Artificial Gravity?

Another interesting item posted to Mastodon

Artificial gravity for spaceflight is a concept older than spaceflight itself, but we've only ever seen one small scale test ever flown in space. However decades of research have been performed to show that the human body can adapt to the conditions required for rotating artificial gravity. 

There is a video on youtube, along with a discussion on Mastodon. Links below.
