Airborne 07.06.15: Solar Impulse In Hawaii, FAA Reauth Delayed, Airlines Investigated

Also: SpaceX Test, The G500, Senate Appropriations, TSA Causes Cash Confiscation, NASA v Thunderstorms, Virgin Atlantic Cuts, Bristow Scholarship

Even those of us who love flying will have to admit that being cramped into a single place cockpit for 5 days in an aircraft that is lucky to hit 50 miles per hour has got to be pushing the limits of having a good time. That’s exactly what Pilot Andre Borschberg had done when he landed the solar-powered Solar Impulse 2 airplane at Kalaeloa Airport, Hawaii last Friday.

Working Out In Artificial Gravity

MIT Researchers Find A Combination Of Exercise And Artificial Gravity May Lessen Negative Effects Of Weightlessness In Space

Astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) have a number of exercise options, including a mechanical bicycle bolted to the floor, a weightlifting machine strapped to the wall, and a strap-down treadmill. They spend a significant portion of each day working out to ward off the long-term effects of weightlessness, but many still suffer bone loss, muscle atrophy, and issues with balance and their cardiovascular systems.
