Why construction of a huge rocket won't solve all problems of space tourism


In February of this year the SpaceX company declared opening of tourist flights around the Moon. And last week the name of the first tourist became known. The Japanese billionaire to Yusak Maezava will become him. The Japanese will depart not one. The company to him will be kept from six to eight fellow travelers from among outstanding people of art.

Presumably, a travel will take place in 2023 when Elon Musk finishes construction of the huge Big Falcon Rocket rocket. Judging by the last progress of SpaceX, there are no bases to believe that Musk will give up on this ambitious idea. The expedition will become a considerable step for civil and commercial astronautics. But some scientists believe that tourist flight around the Moon can become incredibly dangerous.

New conditions
of
Space - not the most friendly environment for the person. He can blow up your lungs, freeze you, irradiate with a lethal dose of solar radiation. Of course, the mankind has learned to cope with all these trifles. But the main problem is that still for a long time and far only specially prepared people flew to space.

For example, philosophy of NASA in this regard was always extremely simple. The agency selects the healthiest people, and thanks to it spends the minimum quantity of resources to support them healthy. According to doctor Daniel Baklend, the senior teacher of Duke University, the physical shape of all astronauts of NASA is comparable to physical shape of professional highly effective athletes.

With tourists everything is absolutely differently. To send to the Moon a small group of sixty-year-old businessmen, directors and artists - at all not the same as to send there the team of thirty-forty-year-old perfect experts. Even if at the time of flight all tourists will be nominally healthy, they will have all the same these or those problems with health.

Doctor Baklend considers that chronic diseases and malfunctions with which the person can normally live on Earth can behave is absolutely unpredictable in the conditions of a space travel. To compare to us there is nothing, before absolutely healthy people went to space, as a rule.

Insignificant experience of space tourism which is already available for mankind doesn't give any answers too. For example, 90-minute flights offered by Jeff Bezos's company Blue Origin on intensity of loadings are comparable to a campaign to the amusement park. But for longer travel on Big Falcon Rocket it is necessary to equip the medical compartment which isn't conceding functionality to a compartment of the cruise liner. In other words, space tourism demands creation of space medicine.

Space medicine
of
according to doctor Baklend, now on the International Space Station, of course, is available something like a medical compartment. But its functionality is comparable to functionality of the ambulance car. It is designed to help the healthy people who have got any injuries like a change
