10 Memorizing Facts About International Space Station

The International space station is the largest space station launched by the human. This is also known as ISS abbreviation. This is claimed to be visible to the unaided eye from the earth. The primary purpose of the space station is to perform the research and testing of the spacecraft system for moon and Mars mission. This station holds the world record of highest time orbiting the earth.

The International space station is the joint program of NASA, Roscosmos, JAXA, ESA, and CSA (1). Where NASA is the National Aeronautic and Space Administration is from United State, Roscosmos State Corporation represent Russia, JAXA is the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, ESA is the European Space Agency, and CSA is the Canadian Space Agency.

Each of the countries included in the member provides the financial resource for operating the space station. This is claimed to be one of the most costly space operations and the cost is estimated to be greater than 150 billion United States Dollar.

Facts About International Space Station

1. Section

The station has two sections one is the united state orbital segment shortly known as USOS and the other is Russian orbital segment also known as ROS.

2. Repair of Station

Using the robotic arms and other ways carries out the repairing process. This is essential to mention any defects arise.

3. Communication

Communication by radio communication that is linked to the internal and external communication system.

4. Power Supply

The power source is supplied by solar energy by means of photovoltaic cells. The lithium-ion batteries are used for energy storage. 

5. Food for Crewmember

The foods are vacuum shielded in the plastic bag according to the need of crewmembers. Each crewmember has the individual food packages. Different members have their own food choices. The new ships from Earth achieve the fresh supply of food.

6. Weight

The weight is the by-product of mass and gravity. Due to this, it varies with the gravitational value. The mass of the ISS is 419, 455 kilogram (2).

Communism is the ideology developed by German philosopher and sociologist coined Karl Marx in 1940s. According to the communist ideology, common ownership of good are stressed. Although the root of this tenets dates back to a long time back.
This ideology predicts that property should be handled by the government and need to abolish the private property. Establishing the law and order followed by equality can make the economy of country prosperous.
Communism theory was based on the book by Charles Darwin named origin of species. The book predicts that human beings are the animals and are the by-product of long-term evolution over the thousands of years. Due to this, I will like to call Charles Darwin as the father of communism.

Any Facebook and Mobile number of Aghori Baba is almost all the potential traps.

Metallic Hydrogen: Superconductor Discovery and Skeptics

Hydrogen is the first element of Group 1 of the periodic table and is abundant in nature. They have one proton and one elector. Freezing at 253-degree centigrade hydrogen become liquid and is widely used in Rocket fuel. Under normal atmospheric pressure hydrogen atom pair up to form the hydrogen molecule. The metallic property of the hydrogen is displayed when it loses the electron.
First Hypothesis on Metallic Hydrogen
The scientist named Eugene Wigner and Hillard Bell Huntington, the Princeton physicist hypothesized that massive pressure on the hydrogen turns it into the metal. This was hypothesized in the year 1935 (1). Until now there has not been any successful experiment to test this hypothesis.

Metallic Hydrogen Discovery
The Post-doctorate researcher Dr. Silvera and Ranga P. Dias has published the finding of metallic hydrogen in Journal science. The published journal claims that they have made metallic hydrogen by applying 495 Gigapascals pressure at the temperature -268-degr…
