4 Facts About Space Travel You Never Knew

By January 8, 2015Other, Rocket Science
  1. You don’t have to be superfit or an astronaut to go into space. With space planes, anyone could fly into space.

  2. The technology already exists to fly into space (in fact it has been around since the 1960s), all that’s missing is the vision and belief to get started.

  3. Space is completely silent. Sound waves need a medium to travel through and as there is no atmosphere in space, there is no sound. For this reason communication in space is normally done through radio waves.

  4. Space travel does not have to cost millions. Reusable space planes cost dramatically less than throwaway rocket launchers, making space travel surprisingly affordable.
