NASA Explorers S4 E6: On Station


Now that our researchers’ experiment is on the International Space Station, it’s time to test how their samples behave in microgravity. This week on NASA Explorers, the astronauts conduct science in space, while a team back here on Earth runs their own piece of the project.

  1. Sorry Female's you need not apply  because female astronauts have fewer opportunities to fly in space than men partially because of strict lifetime radiation exposure restrictions, for that one reason we shouldn't spend Millions training females when we don't have adequate shielding from radiation!

    Both male and female astronauts are not allowed to accumulate a radiation dose that would increase their lifetime risk of developing fatal cancer by more than 3 percent. A six-month mission on the International Space Station exposes astronauts to about 40 times the average yearly dose of background radiation that a person would receive living on Earth, for that reason alone we should not be putting females in the astronaut program until we have adequate shielding
    While the level of risk allowed for both men and women in space is the same, women have a lower threshold for space radiation exposure than men, according to physiological models used by NASA.

    "Depending on when you fly a space mission, a female will fly only 45 to 50 percent of the missions that a male can fly," Peggy Whitson, the former chief of NASA's Astronaut Corps, said. "That's a pretty confining limit in terms of opportunity. I know that they are scaling the risk to be the same, but the opportunities end up causing gender discrimination based on just the total number of options available for females to fly. Sorry to inform you Christina Koch now 41 and Jessica Meir42 both of you will actually be too old to be considered for the mission to the Moon! NASA Astronaut Corps. Astronaut candidates have ranged between the ages of 26 and 46, with the average age being 34.

  2. So your able to magically dock on a “ space staton” that is moving 17,000 miles per hour, but you can’t send a rover to the moon and place a camera there for a live stream of earth? Huh 🤔
    60 million a day of our taxpayer money isn’t enough?
