    Just skimming close by a star won't change your velocity relative to that star - you will be on your way out with the same velocity (in the star's reference frame) as you came in, and won't enter an...

    There's nothing controversial about the link. Nor is there anything controversial about the observation that the Soviet space program was competitive with NASA well into the 1970s, at least. But some...

    The picture doesn't really change by looking at crewed missions' failures. More astronauts were killed in the Challenger disaster alone than the total number of cosmonauts killed on duty. At least...
