Travel Tips From a Real Space Tourist: Get Ready to Feel Awful


Man was not meant to live in outer space:
The microgravity that permits what Garriott de Cayeux describes as “joyous, free-feeling” motion we associated with astronauts also takes a serious physiological toll. “Body fluids stop flowing normally, which is why, in space, people’s faces look puffy, and they generally have somewhat bloodshot eyes,” he says. “It feels sort of like lying on a children’s slide, head down. In the first days, you get very stuffed up and have a bit of a headache.” These symptoms can be easily remedied with common drugs, such as aspirin and Sudafed.

Another side effect comes from the floating fluid in your inner ear, which normally helps a person detect motion and stay balanced. In space, of course, it also begins floating. “So if you move your head forward, it will slosh to the back and make you feel like you’re falling backwards,” says Garriott de Cayeux. “There’s a disagreement between what you see that you’re doing and what your body thinks it’s doing—and that often causes sea sickness.” 
That perceptual disconnect tends to last for about three days before your brain begins compensating. When you get back to Earth it takes another three days to readjust. This is another downside of space tourism that can be treated with drugs. 
Other physical challenges are more difficult to address and also less acute. Humans in space suffer muscle and bone atrophy. Space travel requires exposure to increased levels of radiation, which can lead to surprising visual effects. "All of a sudden you will see this really intense, bright white ... and then it will fade back out," says Garriott de Cayeux. "That is basically you being damaged by radiation, it triggers the impression of light even though there is no light." Bloomberg Read More>>>>>>>
Should be obvious - but its not.

Islamic Terrorism: Altitude Bomb Detonated On Sriwijaya Air Flight (SJ182) Fell 10,000 Feet In Less Than 60 Seconds Just Four Minutes After Take Off

Sounds like a bomb detonated at 10,000ft.... Boeing 737 jet with 62 people onboard 'crashes' after 'falling 10,000ft' following takeoff from Indonesia and VANISHING off radar - as rescuers find debris in the ocean A Boeing 737 passenger jet with 62 people onboard has disappeared over the sea after plummeting 10,000 feet shortly following takeoff from Jakarta, reports claim. The Sriwijaya Air plane took off from Soekarno-Hatta international airport on Saturday afternoon when it lost contact with the control room. The usual flight time is about 90 minutes over the Java Sea between Jakarta and Kalimantan, Indonesia's section of Borneo island. But four minutes after it took off, the Boeing B737-500 plane plunged nearly 11,000 feet in less than 60 seconds, leaving it at an altitude of just 250 feet before it vanished. There are feared to be 62 people on the 26-year-old plane, including 56 passengers - seven of whom are children and three are babies - as well as two

Israel's Space Official Jew Haim Eshed "I Don't Believe That Jesus Christ Is God But I Do Believe In Space Aliens Of The Galactic Federation Who Live In An Underground Mars Base"....

  OK..... Mankind has made contact with an alien 'Galactic Federation' but it has been kept secret because 'humanity isn't ready', former head of Israel's space security program claims  An Israeli space official has claimed that aliens are real and secretly in contact with America and Israel - but are keeping their existence quiet because humanity 'isn't ready'. Haim Eshed - who was head of Israel's space security programme for nearly 30 years and is a retired general - described a so-called 'Galactic Federation' which supposedly runs an underground Mars base in a secret pact with Washington. But the aliens had to intervene to stop Donald Trump when he appeared 'on the verge' of blurting out their secrets, he told Israeli paper Yediot Aharonot. And the 87-year-old Eshed says the aliens will not come into the open until humanity can 'evolve and reach a stage where we will... understand what space and spaceships are&#

Sriwijaya Air Flight (SJ182) Boeing 737-500 Crashed 5 Minutes After Takeoff From Jakarta, Indonesia

  Sriwijaya Air Boeing 737-500 crashes five minutes after take-off Jakarta Airport, Indonesia  On 9 January, a Sriwijaya Air Boeing 737-500 (registered PK-CLC) operated domestic flight SJ182 between Jakarta and Pontianak, Indonesia. Five minutes after take-off, however, the aircraft crashed.  On Flightradar24-data, the aircraft departed the airport of Jakarta but lost more than 10,000 feet of altitude in less than one minute, about 4 minutes after take-off. The aircraft subsequently went missing and communications with air traffic was lost.  Adita Irawati, the Indonesian Transport Ministry spokesperson, told This Week in Asia that their services are investigating and coordinating the matter with Indonesia’s national search and rescue agency (Basarnas) and the transport safety body (KNKT).  A local newspaper writes that the aircraft crashed close to one of the inhabited islands of the Thousand Islands, a chain of islands to the north of Jakarta’s coast. Meanwhile, the crash was confirme
