The European Space Agency’s astronaut, a member of the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule mission, which flies into space on Friday, will honor Stanisوافaw Lim in extraterrestrial space on the centenary of his birth. Astronauts will stay in space for more than half a year.
The Polish Science Fiction Foundation provided information on plans to commemorate the Polish science fiction writer on Friday.
“Stanisław Lem will be honored in space perhaps in the fall, at the end of the mission. But how exactly – this is still a mystery, preparations are underway. The film and photos from the event will be published” – said to PAP Szymon Kloska of the Krakow Festival office, which set up the Science Fantasy Foundation With Poland cooperated with the European Space Agency.
The crew of the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule mission to the International Space Station (ISS-International Space Station), which began Friday in Florida, includes four participants. One of them is French astronaut (mission specialist) Thomas Pesquet – and Stanislaw Lim will be honored, as announced.
Pesquet is an astronaut from the European Space Agency (ESA), and the other three participants work for NASA: Shane Combro (Mission Commander), Megan MacArthur (Pilot), and Akihiko Hoshid (Mission Specialist). Their research aims to contribute to a better understanding of the universe.
The SpaceX Crew Dragon space mission, which has lasted for more than half a year, begins Friday, and airs on the NASA website and at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeIVJyufJrE. The video of the mission will also be available on the ESA website.
This is the long mission of the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. The first happened a year ago.
More than half a century ago, this is how Lim imagined space travel. “ Once the pilot settled into his seat, he had four main reactor handles and deflected steering nozzles on both sides, three emergency handles, six small pilot arms, start-up and idle speed handles, power, thrust, and nozzle out of control, and above the floor – wheel Great for air conditioning and oxygen equipment, a handle for installing firefighting, a reactor launcher (if an uncontrolled chain reaction starts in it), a looped rope to which the top of the cabinet is attached with thermos and food, and under the feet – gently padded brake pedals, ringed and ejection valve, which when Pressing it (you had to first break the cap with your foot and push it forward) exits the bladder together with the chair and the pilot and the parachute strings flying behind it. ” (“Birx Pilot Tales”) (PAP)
