6 Space Exploration Stories That Are Crazy And True

NASA-crazy-s

From Cracked –

Ever since humans first looked into the endless night sky, we have dreamed of traveling among the stars. And after 10,000 years of ingenuity and sacrifice, we’ve journeyed as far as … Earth’s garage, basically. But nonetheless, such is our fascination with going to space that pretty much every single moment those brave astronauts have spent out there has been painstakingly recorded and analyzed — including the deeply embarrassing ones. We’ve all, at some point, been caught in gross, awkward, or just plain stupid situations, but few have done that in plain view of the infinite cosmos, like when … someone farted on the moon, or when the cosmonauts were armed with firearms.

Space Food Hall of Fame

Yes, NASA has a Space Food Hall of Fame. It’s actually a webpage with a little trivia about astronauts’ meals and a few videos about early space foods that got marketed to the general public (Tang and Space Food Sticks). Another page from BuzzFeed has a few pics of the latest in orbital dining.

Uganda’s Space Program Has A Ways To Go

According to the BBC –

For a start, his research centre is based in his back garden where there’s not much evidence of the type of sophisticated tools and machinery I’d imagine you need for this kind of work. When I was there, most of the engineers were equipped with just sandpaper and paint brushes. They haven’t even started work on the shuttle yet, at the moment it’s more of a theoretical project. They have begun to build an aircraft though, apparently to test their engineering skills before they begin work on a shuttle which they hope will send a Ugandan cosmonaut into space. The plane they’ve built is sandwiched tightly, nose-to-tail, between two single-storey buildings which house Chris and his team. It is painted blue and white and has the Ugandan flag proudly displayed on the side of the cockpit. It’s far from complete, there’s still no engine – just a pile of bricks to simulate weight, and a mass of wires hang out underneath. But it still seems like quite an achievement and if this hadn’t been a space programme I’d have been pretty impressed. Chris believes that if his team is successful, this will still be the first aeroplane designed and built in Uganda.
