J VanDomelen Forty-four years ago this month history was made 238,900 miles from the Earth’s surface. Saturday, 20 July 2013, marked the anniversary of the first manned spaceflight to the Moon. Military and aerospace (mil/aero) professionals and enthusiasts rejoiced—while also lamenting the fact that we haven’t revisited the Moon since 1972. As mil/aero industry pundits have been quick to point out this month, the … Read More

J VanDomelen Military and aerospace (mil/aero) organizations are investing research, development, test & evaluation (RDT&E) efforts into planetary defense measures and technologies to protect us from rogue near-Earth asteroids (NEAs) that have the potential to end life as we know it. Currently, our only active defense is observation (not much of a defense), but some mil/aero prime contractors are working … Read More

J VanDomelen There is much speculation in the aerospace sciences community as to what impact an asteroid or comet would have on the Earth were they to cross paths, and when that might happen. Scientists believe it was a 10-kilometer asteroid/comet that slammed into the Earth near the Gulf of Mexico some 66 million years ago and lead to the extinction of 70 percent of all species on the planet, including the dinosaurs. Recently, … Read More

J VanDomelen Mars One management in the Netherlands has outlined the not-for-profit foundation’s goals and mission plan for 2013 through 2025. It is an interesting read and exciting proposition. Can Mars One and its global sponsors achieve the lofty goal of the first human settlement on Mars? They will, if all goes to plan: 2013 – Build a replica of the proposed Mars settlement in a cold, arid, desolate environment … Read More

J VanDomelen Not-for-profit organization Mars One in the Netherlands is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: a one-way trip to Mars. Human space flight is expensive. It’s a fact that Americans and many others throughout the world have heard over and over. During trying economic times in the U.S., NASA’s budget often comes under scrutiny and, lately, human space exploration has taken an economic hit—yet, commercial … Read More

One-way Ticket to Mars

Posted by J VanDomelen

J VanDomelen Would you buy a one-way ticket to Mars? Seriously, just one way. It’s an interesting proposition, if not a bit frightening. Many have pondered that it is perhaps more likely that many people can conceive of putting someone we know on a one-way flight to the Red Planet, rather than taking on the challenge ourselves. Heck, even Ralph Kramden of “The Honeymooners” fame promised to send his wife Alice “straight … Read More

J VanDomelen Aerospace engineers and enthusiasts, as well as science-fiction fans, are the latest Eagleworks experiment. The White-Juday warp field interferometer was designed and developed to record warped space and help scientists better understand the space-time bubble that would be required to break Einstein’s theory of general relativity. Albert Einstein theorized that a particle cannot travel faster than the … Read More

J VanDomelen This mil/aero geek is ecstatic that NASA has the resources, since the decommissioning of the shuttles, to start acting as a catalyst for the development of game-changing, space-related technologies. A couple really interesting stories have surfaced recently that have intrigued aerospace geeks, myself included. The most noteworthy is…wait for it…warp speed research! That’s right. You read that correctly. … Read More
