NASA is apparently in preparation of an experiment to create meals that are balanced enough and not boring for the Mars Mission. Balanced food that is not boring is a big issue for the 3 year long journey to Mars. Those that go to Mars will have to eat prepared food, as well as cook shelf life food. Here is an excerpt from the article…
“NASA is lining up humans to eat space food on Hawaii in a mission-to-Mars simulation.
Since no life on Mars has been proven so far to enable astronauts to catch and grill something fresh, the mission on Mars will have to take enough rations for three years. The problem is how to make those rations sufficient and not boring.
Researchers from Cornell University and the University of Hawaii-Manoa are going to test six volunteers in a facility simulating a base on Mars on a Hawaiian lava flow. The deadline for applications is February 29.”

Russians are a lot smarter than one might think. Especially with the American education system the way it is. Right now, Russia ranks ahead of us in Advanced Math and Science. The only grades we do better than them in is 4th grade, the elementary years. From there, things just go down hill for many Americans.
Just the thought of Nuclear powered things tend to create a lot of buzz and quite a bit of interesting conversation. A nuclear powered train is no exception, certainly one to talk to your friends about. Here is an excerpt from the article…
“Russian Railways (RZhD) and the Russian Federal Atomic Energy Agency (Rosatom) intend to create a nuclear-powered train, reports Interfax.
According to RZhD vice-president Valentin Gapanovich, the train, consisting of 11 carriages, will house scientific exhibits.
The estimated cost of construction is as yet unknown, as well as the safety measures for such transport.
In the middle of the 20th Century the transport industry almost fell in love with the idea of nuclear-powered vehicles.”
Seems like America has some catching up to do. Click on the image to be taken to the original article…
