Space Tourists Could Be Struck Down By Astro-Sickness, Warns Astronaut...


The one thing I am concerned about with tourists in space is people thinking you can just get on a rocket and just go into space.

“It’s not like riding a commercial aircraft, not at all, and I can see all these problems with people up there and throwing up and messing up somebody’s flight that they paid $250,000 for.

“Your first moments in space are not always your best. I remember when we were in the shuttle and you are at 3Gs for the last two minutes or so, and it’s a little hard to breathe and then the engine shuts off, and boom, you’re weightless, it’s that fast.

“I could feel the blood rushing and in 30 seconds I was going ‘uh oh’, I am going to be one of the ones who is not going to feel good and I was extremely grateful that I had eaten absolutely nothing for breakfast.

“I was lucky I never threw up, because if you think throwing up is bad here on the ground it’s really bad in space.” Source

Airport Doom! Passengers stranded in Siberia for 3 days after Air France #AF116 diverted to Irkutsk and replacement Boeing 777-300 could not take off

Passengers stranded in Siberia for 3 days after Air France #AF116 diverted to Irkutsk and replacement Boeing 777-300 could not take off Passengers of an Air France flight from Paris to Shanghai had to encounter the legendary Siberian cold when their plane made an emergency landing in Irkutsk on Sunday. Having spent the night in Irkutsk, the stranded passengers were expecting to complete their journey the next day when a replacement plane arrived. But the second Boeing 777-300 could not take off due to technical difficulties, much to the ire of the already boarded travellers. Having no Russian visas, they are consistently accompanied by police and are not allowed to leave hotel premises. A third Air France plane headed to Siberia and the passengers finally left Irkutsk on a third Air France plane on Wednesday morning, the state-run RIA Novosti news agency reported. Source
