Journey to Mars – via Spain

SCIENTISTS have described it as “a dress rehearsal for the biggest journey our civilisation has ever taken”, and it will take place in Andalucia.

The arid, Mars-like conditions of the Rio Tinto have persuaded boffins at the European Space Agency (ESA) that the former mining area in Huelva province is the ideal location for their tests.

Information about an online engineering degree is available for those of you who also have a passion for science, space agencies, and the future of space travel. One needs an engineering degree for many jobs in the aerospace engineering field, and that is a great site for locating degree information.

The team tried out a new space suit and a prototype unmanned rover called Eurobot, which they claim “can do anything that is too difficult, too dangerous or too boring for astronauts to do.”

In reality a manned mission to the Red Planet, which is 35 million miles from Earth, is still a long way off although scientists remain positive.

“There’s still quite a few new technologies that I believe would be needed – we need better ways of getting people there, with more powerful propulsion systems, to shorten the duration – things like that,” said Scott Hovland, head of human systems at ESA.

“But I am pretty positive than in our lifetime, we have a good chance of seeing something like that happening.”

  1. Greetings: we know that galaxies are moving and we know it’s there in the center of each galaxy black hole, but here the question arises what is the speed of rotation (roll) black holes and why can not light penetrated, what is the speed of movement of any galaxy are all questions boggled, but here we would like to take a light on the question as this.?
    The answer is that light travels or moves quickly is 300.000 kilometers per second, and this is the only speed known in the field of science, But this speed is not the only speed in the universe here and ask someone why do not penetrate the light black holes? The answer is because the speed of rotation around the black hole and the highest himself very much greater than the speed of light can not penetrate the light from the black hole because it is if the speed of rotation of black holes less than or equal to the speed of light for the amount of light to penetrate the black holes , So the question of what appears here is the speed of rotation around the black holes themselves?
    Answer: to measure the speed of rotation of black hole take this simple equation which looks like this
    Black hole rotation speed = (distance calculation) half of the black hole diameter × speed of light. This simple equation we can calculate the speed of rotation of the black hole.
    In order to calculate the speed of movement of the galaxy also use this simple equation.
    Speed ??of movement of the galaxy = (speed of rotation of black hole × (half diameter galaxy (distance)). This way we can calculate the speed of movement of the galaxy and the rotation speed of black holes is very high speeds and the fairy and the highest and largest of the speed of light millions of times these equations, we can answer these questions It is actually real.

    your sincerely
