As we grow, and strive to work with other nations, is awesome to see that current nations can overcome many things for the study of science. Like China's experiment that just arrived at the International Space Station a few days ago. The U.S. & China made sure to not ...

Anyone seen any newer technology for camping where the trailer/rv has pop-out sections? Well, seems like another company has taken the same idea to space. The ISS has had this little thing attached for the last year, and it's doing great. Check it out to see one way we'll ...

@Dirk, I absolutely agree. That's probably why I find the fascination with SpaceX's 1st-stage system. I just about drool watching their launches and their tech. It's an amazing feat doing what they do.

If it is something with reusing or recycling then its the way to go.

So, in the past two months, we've lost 2 very dear friends of ours. One, an adopted mom, and the other a good man that was great at capturing life with his camera. It hasn't been easy, and sadness affects everyone differently.

In the future nation, we'll ...

One can have dreams of a space viking burial - burning on a free reentry - or shot directly into the sun.

But recycling a body on a space station is a more practical and reasonal approach.

Well that's six of six posters of a single mind on the subject. A small cross section of Asgardia, but still fascinating that we share this outlook. Makes me feel good about how Asgardian culture will develop.


Anyone feel different?

Can 24, 01 / Jun 13, 17 09:30 UTC

if I remember correctly, the reasons why burial was originally used was due to the impact of the dead upon the living: disease.

I was giving consideration to how to deal with dead Asgardians while on board the space station specifically dealing with the odor and potential ...

So, here's a question I've long considered after reading "Sphere". I'm wondering what the possibility of creating a suit, or pod design for spacecraft to encapsulate a person with liquid. This would allow them to take extreme amounts of g-forces without blacking out, or suffering injury. I know that the ...

Inertia is another key point - in things like Star Trek they have "inertial dampeners" which is what makes it possible for the ship to make such high-G maneuvers without throwing the crew that isn't strapped down across the bridge, or liquifying when the ship jumps to warp and the ...

That might be a possibility for long-term missions. I'm just wondering about the short-term. Did anyone ever watch the show Babylon 5? Their fighters had 16 thrusters. Now how would their bodies react making extreme directional changes? Even in the series Galactica, they make crazy direction changes. What effects do ...

In theory it's able to provide for mitigation - it would need to have *rapid* response. Inappropriately applied it'd cause some serious damages to the organics I'd wager.

@Frankie, no 2 feet of snow. We had a couple inches about a week ago. I'm on the west side of the Cascades, so we get a little more rain vs. snow. It's been cold, though. This morning was 28', and the roads were icy. Welcome to the first day ...
