The exploration of distant regions of outer space is a branch of astronomy, astronautics and space technology that has captivated the minds of scientists and adventurers alike. From the first discovery of the Van Allen radiation belts to the launch of Sputnik 1, space science has revolutionized our understanding of astronomy and physics. But what is the science behind space travel?The physical exploration of space is carried out through both manned space flights and robotic spaceships. To carry out the necessary research to address these scientific issues, countries around the world have developed a variety of space missions.
These missions have led to a number of derivative products, such as memory foam mattresses, artificial hearts and WD-40 lubricant spray. Living in space means that astronauts are completely dependent on their spaceships to stay safe from the harsh external environment. To reduce the effects of life in microgravity, astronauts must undergo rigorous training. However, even with training, some astronauts still feel sick the entire time they are in space. The development of space travel technology can also lead to beneficial “derivative” technologies with some very practical applications. For example, pushing spaceships towards the stars using the light of a high-powered laser is one possibility.
Another is bilateral or multilateral cooperation between several countries to carry out space science missions. The science behind space travel is complex and ever-evolving. But with continued research and exploration, we can continue to expand our understanding of outer space and unlock its secrets.
