>>7842183 I actually imagine they'd temporarily shut down her reproductive system else she'd be hindered in training when she's having to experience cramps, illness etc every 12 months. There are drugs like that that can last 3 yrs at a time.
>>7842183 there's not much difference in deltaV to send them to 'space' (if by space you man at least LEO). the advantage of sending women is that they are more energy efficient and would take considerably less food\oxygen for a long duration mission .
on shit like apollo or building the ISS \ repairing satellites like hubble we actually needed people to do it because making because making a reliable robot that could do it instead was much harder with the tech of that time . but the main purpose of most people sent into space is to test what happens to them in space so it makes sense to send both men and women to places like the ISS so you can have a more diverse pool of data to study .
basically if you need scientific data on some object in our solar system you send a probe\lander\rover\whatever , if you wanna test how humans would react to being there \ systems that allow extended survival away from earth you send men and women so you could see how the different bodies react to the environment .
if you are planning a meme-space-mission (like apollo, it had great scientific achievements but its main purpose was the 'space race' meme) then sending women might be a good idea because of the reduced mass of food\water\oxygen needed and the fact that if you're already doing a meme-mission having a women only or mostly women crew is a meme in of itself and will help you with publicity\ funding.
>>7842463 >>7842787 alright lets call it 'publicity driven mission' . kennedy literally said the reason they're doing apollo is because its hard . no word of the scientific questions we had about the moon that we hoped to find answers to like the origin of the moon .
>noun >1. >a cultural item that is transmitted by repetition >and replication in a manner analogous to the >biological transmission of genes.
it was basically the 'yea we'll do impressive shit better then this other nation that also does impressive shit and beat them' meme . there is no real non-meme value to being the first to land on the moon, the value is in what you do there but these memes manufacture artificial value which allows you to gain public support for the funding of your space program .
>>7842932 >no word of the scientific questions we had about the moon that we hoped to find answers to like the origin of the moon .
True, but that's because it was really much more about the technology needed to pull it off than the science they wood get as a result. Publicity was a huge part of it, but not the only part. The Americans and Soviets were each terrified of the other expanding out and "conquering space" and buildingbases on the moon and shit. And the tech developed for that purpose has obvious military value. It just turned out that there wasn't an actual reason to stay there.
>I think the big controversy was about — and a lot of the women disagreed — how many feminine hygiene products do you put [onboard].
>Of course the more you put, the less room you have in your drawer for your clothes and stuff. Or in a drawer. I don't even remember where they put it. I helped make that decision with the docs. We had to do worst case. Tampons or pads, how many would you use if you had a heavy flow, five days or seven days of flow. Because we didn't know how it would be different up there. What's the max that you could use?
>Most of the women said, "I would never, ever use that many." "Yes, but somebody else might. You sure don't want to be worried about do I have enough." So it was like, "Uh." The men were all, "Oh man, that's a lot of stuff!" I don't know; it was another one of those issues that was really kind of a nonissue.
>How much did you end up putting on board? Do you recall?
>I don't remember. It was probably — because we included both pads and tampons — probably at least twice as many as someone would use, and then probably 50 percent more than that just in case. It was a big wad of stuff.
>>7844458 this. the guys we first sent into space were legit crazy.
>had to tell one of them to get back inside before he died >they wanted a fucking window >they wanted to FLY the damn thing instead of having computers do it >they basically took a cardboard box for a spin around the earth >a bunch of them fucking died huffing pure oxygen
normies in general aren't meant for space.
