Space Travel

2010 year was notable for two major events in space exploration. Firstly, on 23 October 2010 in the desert of New Mexico (USA), 70 kilometers north of the city of Las Cruces opened runway the world's first private spaceport The New Mexico Spaceport Authority Building (for people "Spaceport America"). Project Manager - world-renowned architect Norman Foster. Part of the spaceport territory and crossed into the terminal lease corporation Virgin Galactic - the company of billionaire Richard Branson, to whom belonged to the idea of building the spaceport.

Secondly, two weeks before October 12, 2010 hosted the first manned flight of a commercial suborbital spacecraft SpaceShipTwo VSS Enterprise, established in the company Virgin Galactic. The winged rocket plane took off from the carrier WhiteKnightTwo «Eve» at an altitude of 13,700 meters above the Mojave Desert, in southern California, and operated by pilots of the company Scaled Composites Pete Siebold and Mike Olsberi successfully landed at the airfield Research Center Mojave Air and Space Port eleven minutes later. Flight performed without engines, was soaring, his objectives were to monitor the dynamics of the liberation of the ship, to make an initial assessment of management systems and the consequences of stopping the engine, to compare the stability and control with the predictions of computer models to look at the lift and drag, as well as just run downhill and sit down.

It is planned that the spacecraft will lift SpaceShipTwo suborbital altitude for six passengers and two pilots. The initial price of tickets for space passengers - about $ 200 thousand for the place. SpaceShipTwo, designed by Scaled Composites and designer Burt Rutan, is an improved version of the aircraft-rocket SpaceShipOne, which won $ 10 million Ansari X Prize competition in 2004 and was the first commercial manned spacecraft reached an altitude of 100 km. That's when billionaire Richard Branson has decided to launch Virgin Galactic and enter the market of space tourism.

These two major events have already pointed out a fact - on the commercialization of space research and opened access for private companies for exploration of outer space. From fundamental research funded by the state and depend on the policies of individual government officials, space research reached the level of private interests by opening access to the mass implementation of internal creative potential of people of the magnitude of the planet Earth.

The project "Space Travel" advertised by the International Society of Philosophy and Cosmology, will involve all interested organizations and individuals in the scientific, technical, philosophical and creative exploration of outer space and the very causes underlying the creative impulses of people to overcome the magnitude of the Earth and reach the level of cosmic force.

The aim of the project "Space Travel" is to bring together people, ideas and information in the field of long-duration space travel. The project provides for the publication of research project participants, conferences, seminars, financial and informational support, etc.
