Food will have to be taken in tubes such as we use for toothpaste purposes.
It will have to be put in the mouth and pulled down into the stomach by practice. We will have to carry air in sealed bottles, because there is no air above in space and we cannot live without air.
The total estimated cost will be over twenty billion dollars (8).
On the International Space Station, there will be a large variety of experiments ranging from improvements of industry to medical advances.
When it escapes the gravitational pull of the earth, another rocket comes out of the first rocket and continues the journey upward to any destination without any friction because there is nothing, not even air, to slow down its speed. The first is the problem of refueling and supplies.
This will be accomplished by means of a floating platform round the earth on which supplies of all kinds will be stored and this will be used for landing and repairing purposes.The International Space Station may provide many scientific discoveries, but everyone will pay for it.This project will become the most expensive project in space since the 1969 mission of Apollo 13 to the moon.Both air and water will have to be carried along with other necessaries of life.Those who first land on the moon will not find it that interesting place which it appears to be on a moonlit night.Time is not far off when we will travel to other planets as we travel now to other countries.Gagarin, Titov, Sheppard, and others have already proved that it is possible to cross the limit of the gravity of the earth and travel anywhere in space.Russia is also placing trust in this airplane superpower.They signed a 180 million dollar contract to build the Functional Cargo Block, the unit that will provide power to stabilize the station (Bizony 87).This interplanetary station will be the first stage.We may need many such interplanetary stations if we attempt long voyages to distant stars like the Mars. Once we escape the gravity of the earth we will cease to have any weight.
