Astronauts will use their feces as a radiation shield on 2018 mission to Mars
The Inspiration Mars Foundation’s audacious plan for a primarily private-funded, manned ship to Mars has more than a few challenges to overcome before its 2018 launch date, and it turns out the solution to one problem — dangerous cosmic rays — comes in the form of feces. The current plan calls for the two astronauts aboard the 1166-cubic-foot spacecraft to defecate into bags which would be used to line the walls of the ship (after extracting as much water as possible from the waste for reuse).

Shuttle ENTERPRISE Waits For The NY Debut

The prototype space shuttle Enterprise is seen mated on top of NASA’s modified Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft at Dulles International Airport in Virginia on Friday.
Enterprise was the first orbiter built for the space shuttle program, but never went into orbit. It was used primarily for ground and flight tests within the atmosphere.Enterprise had been on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia, but is now being prepared for its new home at the Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum in New York.

Derelict Russian Space Probe ‘Phobos-Grunt’ Crashes to Earth
An artist’s conception shows the breakup of the Phobos-Grunt probe during the final phases of its atmospheric re-entry.

Military spokesman reports Phobos-Grunt re-entry over Pacific Ocean
AP MOSCOW — A failed probe that was designed to travel to a moon of Mars but got stuck in Earth orbit has crashed into the Pacific Ocean, Russian officials said Sunday. The unmanned Phobos-Grunt probe was one of the heaviest and most toxic space derelicts ever to crash to Earth, but there were no reports of injury or damage. There’s a good chance that no one actually saw the spacecraft’s fiery plunge.
"Phobos-Grunt fragments have crashed down in the Pacific Ocean," the RIA-Novosti news service quoted Alexei Zolotukhin, a spokesman for Russia’s aerospace defense forces, as saying. The debris zone was said to be 775 miles (1,250 kilometers) west of Wellington Island in the South Pacific. Re-entry was estimated to occur at about 12:45 p.m. ET, based on the data received by the Russia.
