Posted December 08, 2018 07:18:08The real world is always moving at a much faster pace than the one in your head.
But it is a time machine, and we still experience the world from the perspective of the time you spent there.
In the past few decades, the average person has spent about a month in a real life time capsule, in which they experienced the world in a vacuum.
Time travel is not the same thing as travel to a different world, but the experience can be recreated at will, in the comfort of your own home.
You might wonder how you would ever travel to another planet, but you could always do it yourself.
In the 1980s, a team of scientists created the first time machine that allowed them to travel through time.
This time machine was able to create and replicate the journey of the astronauts, and even return the astronauts home.
It wasn’t long before the real life astronauts took to the skies again and again, sending back images of the planet and the space station, and finally arriving at Earth on Christmas Eve.
It is no coincidence that Christmas Eve, 1981, is also the date on which the Space Shuttle Endeavour, the first commercial spacecraft to reach orbit, touched down.
In addition to the ISS and the Apollo missions, Endeavor also took part in the Apollo 11 landing, and the launch of the first spacecraft to the moon, Apollo 12.
It was in orbit for more than seven months, from December 6 to December 15, 1981.
In 1981, NASA also began to plan for the future of human spaceflight.
In fact, it planned for the end of manned spaceflight by the year 2020.
But in the decade that followed, we never saw that end, and it was a time of incredible growth in human space flight, the space race, and technological advancements.
What does the future hold?
For the first half of the 20th century, humans lived in space.
Then, with the launch and successful completion of the Saturn V rocket in the 1960s, the Cold War and the advent of nuclear weapons ushered in a new era of exploration and innovation.
In this time, we saw the launch by the US of the Sputnik satellite, the launch on the Space shuttle Endeavors the Apollo and Gemini missions, and in the decades that followed the Apollo 13, 14, and 15 missions.
In 1983, the Space Age was upon us, and people began to invest in space technologies.
NASA had been the most prominent proponent of the Apollo program.
And the first successful human space mission, the Spruce Goose, launched in 1985, was the first human mission to orbit the Earth.
The space race was on.
In 1988, the Soviet Union launched Sputny, the world’s first reusable satellite.
It flew in orbit with the help of the Soyuz rocket.
The space race between the US and the Soviet republics continued.
But the Cold war was over.
And in the following decades, there was a huge change in the space program.
Space travel began to be the dominant form of transportation.
The International Space Station was built, and by the time the US took over the station, it was carrying more astronauts than the previous space station.
In 1993, the shuttle Endevors returned to Earth.
In 1998, NASA took over development of the International Space Shuttle, and many people saw it as a vehicle to bring astronauts back to Earth safely and cheaply.
In 2001, the United States and Russia signed a treaty to establish a permanent station on the moon.
Then in 2003, the International Telecommunication Union established the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), a global communications system that allows all countries to use the same standard to communicate.
In 2011, Russia announced the launch from the Baikonur cosmodrome of the Vostok 1 spacecraft, the largest and most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile ever tested.
This rocket was capable of delivering a nuclear weapon, and would have sent a payload of up to 1,100 metric tons of highly enriched uranium (HEU), which could have been used for nuclear weapons development.
The first space shuttle ended its mission in 2011, and its successor, the ISS, has gone on to send hundreds of crewmembers to the International Laboratory in Kazakhstan, to the Hubble Space Telescope, to various research facilities in the US, Europe, and Japan, to Mars, and to asteroid mining sites around the world.
We are living in a time when we can do anything, anytime, anywhere, and for any reason we want.
And we have become incredibly lucky.
In our own time, there are also new ideas and approaches to space exploration.
It is exciting to think that some of these innovations will have real impacts on the way we live and work in the future.
