Radiation makes Mars travel impossible today…let’s fly faster!

31.05.2013 06:54

NASA’s Curiosity program has confirmed that interplanetary manned missions at speeds attainable today is not possible due to lethal space radiation. However, Russians are preparing to speed up space travel 20-fold to get to Mars and beyond.

The most beautiful view in space is the view of Earth. Earth is a gift that we must appreciate soon.

At 13:31, you must learn first what you do not know of. Propelling is very simple in vacuum.

Nuclear is the edge of tech not the inside parts but the carnal aftermaths of creation

Anonymous user 02.06.2013 13:32

or are they finally admitting we are in an electric universe?

Anonymous user 02.06.2013 13:31

and if space is a vacuum with no resistance how does anything propel itself; gravitational force?

'the radiation on the moon...smaller' doesn't make a lick of difference with the VA(Radiation)Belts

I'm in favour of the Russians exploring alternative energy propulsion methods.
I believe The ION Fusion Drive will be successful.
The application of this model could also be used to replace the primitive Nuclear Power plants which are contaminating this planet.
As far as over-coming the Radiation factor out in space, One need only look at the obvious (Earth).
Immitat e how the Earth is shielded from cosmic rays.
The Moon shot, The jury is still out on that one.
I find the late 60's technology somewhat primitive to evade the (3) Van Allen radiation belts. Was the Sun having flares during the Apollo launches?

Admission re 'Van Allen Belts'? Causes me to wonder if moon landings were faked.

US moon landing hoax finally explained! That is why the US stopped its Apollo missions to Hollywood!

But Whitey isn't starving. Fool!

And for the end, everybody who was walking the moon died becouse of cancer!

Anonymous user 31.05.2013 17:31

And also traveling to the moon is much sorter, and at the end moon has small atmosphere!

Anonymous user 31.05.2013 17:30

The radiation on the moon is much much smaller then on mars! Couse moon is in earth startospfere!

Anonymous user 31.05.2013 17:11

Well then how did they get to moon, or did they not, should we ask kubrick, they silenced d shining

The engine takes a very long time to accelerate you icbm thinking idiots, read a little stupid.

Anonymous user 31.05.2013 16:27

I would love to see the Russians pull this one off,and prove it can be done.

Anonymous user 31.05.2013 16:21

Russia would use the nuclear engine to drive ICBMs.1.5 mins to strike the U.S unaware.Warp Speed.
