Example text

This knowledge increases the significance and importance of appropriate mission and craft design, scheduling, and crew training, guided by a good understanding of the sources of space radiation and their deleterious effects on human health. According to NASA, the health risks of astronauts and cosmonauts on the International Space Station are divided into four main categories: medical emergencies, radiation events, exposure to micrometeorite or debris, and system malfunction and failure. 5 years.

Merely understanding abstractly how something works is a lot less valuable than being able to fix it and even build something better to replace it. Not all of these skills come from formal education. I can think of many engineering graduates I’d never let near a spacecraft. Instead, a Mars colonist is someone who is always learning new things and is eager to put that knowledge into practice. One such engineer saved my father’s life. About sixty years ago he was at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida, flying a Beechcraft military trainer known as the T-6 (or SNJ, in the Navy).

About sixty years ago he was at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida, flying a Beechcraft military trainer known as the T-6 (or SNJ, in the Navy). After takeoff, his landing gear retracted, but the control handle for the gear stripped off; he wouldn’t be able to lower the gear when it was time to land. These SNJ aircraft had been around for a long time, and a team of engineers were occupied full-time at Pensacola in those days to keep 14 Improvisation and Exploration  them running. One of the engineers got on the radio and walked him through a solution: remove the panel down by his feet (it required a Dzus key, but he used a coin), and loosen a nut that connects the landing gear to the control lever.
