Spent the day getting a job, watching @mountaintalk drive off to work on a farm. Shucking corn and shooting at some corn eating crows.

We’re passionate about highlighting explorers and adventurers of all ages, genders, backgrounds and walks of life. But, given the name of our site, we love stories about women who break the mold and set out to tackle monumental goals. In the past we’ve shared a few stories of women and girls being awesome, and we will continue to do so as part of our ongoing Living Artemis series. Living Artemis means two things—women who are alive, currently, and making waves in the world; and women who “live like Artemis” and have strong relationships with nature and their communities. 
We hear regularly from men and women who appreciate that we don’t classify gear, travel, and exploration as specific to just one portion of the population, and we hope you’ll enjoy more coverage of adventurers who inspire us to take risks and be better people.

If you’ve been on our website today, you might have noticed that we’ve added direct links to all of our regular series. We thought this was a better way to share the diverse content we feature without having to always go through the menu system. We’re adding many articles to all of these so keep an eye on your favorites!

spaceexp: Washing the Space Suit
are you serious, they hang the fucking things on a washing line, vladimir flatcapovich hangs up soyuz spacesuits outside on a piece of string nailed to a tree, i refuse to accept this

Yes, the Russians hangs space suits on washing line, Indians carry satellites by bicycle or cart, etc. Only Americans mystifies the whole space exploration thing so as being something special and unreachable for the average person. Even the phrase ‘it’s not rocket science’ was created by Americans. Unfortunately the Europeans tend to do the same. In every other part of the world working with space technology is treated like nothing special compared with other things.

Good old days when Americans solved some testing in this way. Can you imagine something like that today?!

Actually America also dried their space suits in a similar fashion, due to the materials used in most space suits they cannot be machine washed, so generally they will be hung out to dry in this fashion. NASA is not so mystifying or overly complicated as people make them out to be, the American public just likes to make them out to be that way. This is why the space pen legend exists.


He better check that thing for hornets before he puts it back on, i used to always find pervert bees lurking in my britches on the clothes line.
