A giant space base finally arrived in another star system and is preparing to explore all the planets from there...
So, I think a space art work, no matter the theme, must be a kind of modeling of our minds and concepts.

  CNN.com - Space colonists' language could mutate over decades - February 15, 2002
That is a question posed by a linguistics professor attempting to figure out what language space colonists would use and how it would evolve over time.
Even if all of the voyagers were on the same page linguistically speaking when they started, their language could quickly evolve into a dialect far different from any terrestrial cousin.
Over the course of 200 years, a space language might not mutate much from the mother tongue naturally.

 Space Future - The Space Plane and International Space Law
Space planes may be categorized into surface to surface (STS) type and surface to outer space (STO) type according to the purposes of their usage.
A space object is a body that is able to reach the first cosmic speed or circular speed and more, with the intention of launching that body into earth orbit or beyond, including a series of activities related to that launching as well as an attempted launching.
Article 6 of the outer space treaty of 1967 provides that states parties shall bear international responsibility for national activities in outer space when such activities are carried out by governmental agencies or non-governmental entities, and for assuring that national activities are carried out in conformity with the provisions set forth in the present treaty.

All three space travellers, along with Hamid Ansari, were presented with intricately embroidered Kazakh robes and hats.
Anousheh Ansari said at the ceremony that the most striking things about her space journey were seeing the Earth from space and the deep friendship developed aboard the orbiting station.
The space travellers were to undergo a quick medical evaluation as soon as they exited the capsule.

But leaving space exploration entirely in the hands of a big, unwieldy, 1960s-style federal bureaucracy is the equivalent of giving the 15th-century Vatican a monopoly on ocean-going ships.
There is stuff do be done in space, and money to be made, in ways that NASA's College of Cardinals could not dream of — or, if they did dream of them, that they could never explain to the congressional pork distributorship that supplies their funds.
Interplanetary travel is barely on the drawing board; interstellar travel so far from our abilities we may have to evolve into a different species to accomplish it.

Stories, which takes place in the cellars of space corporations and space agencies at present, were set rarely well and style-moderately in scene, and perhaps it serves for you as stimulus to tell new stories.

 Gregory Olsen ready for Soyuz; space tourism, international space station, orbiting, Roskosmos
American businessman-scientist Gregory Olsen is set to travel to space in October this in a Russian Soyuz rocket, in a trip estimated to cost $20 million.
Ever since the Discovery Space Shuttle fleet was grounded, travel to space has been the exclusive monopoly of the Russian space shuttle Soyuz.
The entire Space shuttle fleet was grounded after the Columbia shuttle tragedy in 2003, when the space shuttle exploded in mid-air as it was re-entering the Earth's atmosphere from space.

 Interstellar Travel (Gravity Control Introduction)
Interstellar travel is a wholly different problem, the distance from the Earth to the nearest star is a few thousand times greater than the distance to Pluto.
This, however, only exists for the space travellers, although the several year journey will only be a few months for them several years will pass by on Earth.
There is no doubt this drive would revolutionise the way we look at space travel, and it is fair to say it may be a necessity for human exploration beyond our solar system.

The beauty of spatial symmetries is well known in the realm of art and architecture, from the ornamental arabesques of the old Alhambra to the recent intricate woodcuts signed by Escher, from the palace of the Doges in Venice to the Town Hall in Stockholm.

Their objective was to begin the process of redesigning plants to fulfil the needs of future space settlers.
That means bionic plants would have to be housed in enclosed spaces such as converted caves or greenhouses.
One idea is an inflatable greenhouse that could be maintained at a slightly elevated pressure to keep the structure simple and light, with enough heating to keep temperatures around 5 C and enough lighting for the plants to photosynthesise.

While a few European space tourism ventures exist, like UK-based Starchaser, which exhibited a mockup of a crew capsule at the X Prize Cup this month, Europe lags far behind the United States in the development of this new industry.
ESA is calling for firms to submit proposals for the design of a crew vehicle for suborbital space tourism along with their business plans.
The new space industry has a number of competing technologies and no one, not even a bureaucrat with a state-of-the art crystal ball, can predict the winner: only the market can make that choice.

NASA researchers are working on an alternative form of space travel to the Moon, involving a ride on a giant slingshot that utilises the technology of momentum-exchange tethers.
Unlike a typical space rendezvous, a tether catch must take place instantaneously, so the team had to go back to the drawing board and come up with a totally different approach to linking two spacecraft, and it had to work in a split-second.
Other testing at NASA showed that the orbit of the tether could be determined with enough precision to make the catch, and that tether materials could be built that were light, strong, and resistant to space debris damage.

SAO PAULO: Brazilian travelers incensed about an overbooked flight stormed a runway on Wednesday to prevent a commercial jet from taking off, and a tourism industry leader said two months of chronic flight delays have been a "disaster" for tourism.
The protest happened after a group of about 30 travellers with tickets to the northeastern city of Recife waited more than 40 minutes aboard a bus outside a Tam Linhas Aereas SA jet at one of Sao Paulo's two airports, Brazil's Globo TV reported.
When the crew closed the jet's door because the plane was full, some of the passengers got off the bus in an attempt to stop the plane from leaving.
