Russian Female Astronauts Get Asked How They Will Survive In Space Without Men And Make-Up

As if they didn’t have better things to worry about!

A A A

Russia just announced that six female astronauts will live in a mock spacecraft for eight days at the Institute of Biomedical Problems in Moscow. The all-female team will be locked in the wood-paneled suite of rooms for a simulation to test out both physical and psychological effects of spaceflight.

Ranging between the ages of 22 to 34, these women have varied backgrounds in biophysics, medicine, and psychology. If they successfully survive the 30 scientific experiments during the 8-day mission, they will be sent to the moon by 2029.

The news has become inspiring and exciting for many. Sadly, the press conference that the astronauts had to face before the mission was utterly disappointing.

Why, you ask? Well, of all questions in the world, the women were asked how they will be able to cope in space without, uhm, men. And make-up. Such an epic fail!

The astronauts, however, responded wittily to the press.

Darya Komissarova simply said:

“We are very beautiful without makeup.”

Anna Kussmaul, on the other hand, explained a little deeper and spoke:

“Those who will take part in an experiment are not concerned there won’t be any men in their crew. We are here to do our job and we don’t have time to think about men.”

During the entire 8-day mission, the women will not be able to use shower. As other cosmonauts do, they will have to use wet wipes for washing. The astronauts plan to use their spare time reading, playing board games, and watching their favorite movies.

Sergei Ponomarev, scientific director of the experiment, remarked:

“It will be interesting to see how well they get on with each other, and how well they are able to perform tasks. We believe women might not only be no worse than men at performing certain tasks in space, but actually better.”

These Two Chatbots Talking To Each Other Will Either Make You Laugh Or Creep You Out!

“Don’t you want to have a body?”

As a sci-fi buff, I particularly enjoy movies about man vs. artificial intelligence – especially when it’s well-executed. Whether it is in the form of a robot or a computer screen, it’s fascinating and sometimes quite scary to consider how artificial intelligence works and thinks.

Some of the good films that pop to mind are I, Robot, The Matrix (with its immortal line “Never send a human to do a machine’s job”), The Terminator, RoboCop, Blade Runner, and of course, classics such as Star Wars and Star Trek. Among the most recent ones I loved include superhero blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron and Pixar’s hopeful and adorable Wall-E.

But how do artificial intelligence bots interact with each other in real life? Well, we can get an idea by watching the video below.

Learning about what happens within the prison walls will really motivate you to remain a law-abiding citizen. You definitely wouldn’t want to be stuck in these places.

Recent investigations have discovered that a lot of illegal activities are indeed happening within these prisons. In an blog entitled "The State Let Evil Take Over" by the Human Rights Watch, the details are provided.

15 Things You Say That Prove Toddlers And Drunk People Are Exactly The Same

This is too funny not to share!

Perhaps no other thing in the world is as cute as a toddler. With their penchant of saying and doing funny, adorable things, these tiny kids can pretty much melt your stress away if you spend a good time talking and hanging out with them.

There’s no denying, however, that parenting one takes work. A lot of work, as a matter of fact. Just ask any father or mother and you’d instantly get an idea what I mean.

Cute as they are, toddlers are also little irritable creatures. They do what they want to do and say what they want to say without regard of what others will think of them. They’d loudly talk about their poop in public or something. Much like your drunk friend.
