    We can appreciate the extensive research done by the Russians in the area of how uncontrolled pressure may have devastating effects on a human body. Halfway down the page is a photo of an elderly man who in turn is holding a photo of a man with an exploded watermelon. He is explaining how Russian research has demonstrated with a watermelon what the consequences of uncontrolled air or water pressure may be to a explorer’s testicles.

      Great post. Why are you so fascinated by balls? That’s him in the photograph and he’s cut the watermellon in weightless conditions.

    I wonder which would explode first your testicles or your eye’s?

    Guess it will append on wich contains most amount of water, dvs, waterpressure, it will contract compare to the density, = for example more water, lower contract. Vacum means that for example things containing gas, fluids, etc wich contract under normal atmospeheric pressure will expand uncontrollable if the pressure is not properly controlled, and vise versa.

    My guess is that many of the problems can be compared to those who aperas in for example high pressure cambers under water (when pressure is released for example).

    They (or at least sombody) says that, for every single step of knowledge which can be applied in the space there is a dropof of about my guess, 70-90% more things wish can be applied on earth. So even if space sciense means heck a lot of mony invested, there is much more gained in more common “civil” usages of spin off tecnology products and development wich not had been possible without the space research. So it definitly not wasted away.

    However, i am still waiting for my ticket to Mars and further to other solar systems!

    “Russian Austronauts”

    Are called cosmonauts. Astronauts are american. FYI.

  8. Great information on swimmer’s you have here. I find that using the NutiBiotic ear drops works wonderfully when having ear canal issues.
    Keep up the great work!
