NASA unveils future one-size-fit-all spacesuit

Washington: Prototypes of the Orion Crew Survival Suit that will be worn on the journey and the Exploration Extravehicular Mobility Unit (xEMU) for the lunar surface were unveiled at NASA’s Washington headquarters Tuesday ahead of the agency’s planned return to the Moon by 2024.

Standing in front of a giant US flag, spacesuit engineer Kristine Davis wore a pressurized red, blue and white xEMU suit, showing off a vastly improved range of motion thanks to bearings systems on the waist, arms, and legs.

They are also extendable and therefore one-size-fits-all, meaning there won’t be a repeat of an embarrassing flub in March that caused the first all-female spacewalk to be aborted when a second medium-sized suit wasn’t available.

“If we remember the Apollo generation, we remember Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, they bunny hopped on the surface of the Moon,” NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine told a hall filled with students and interns at the space agency.

“Now we’re going to be able to walk on the surface of the Moon, which is very different from the suits of the past.”

Another key innovation is the xEMU’s unlimited capacity to absorb carbon dioxide, a byproduct of respiration that is also poisonous in high quantities

Under the Artemis mission, NASA plans to land on the Moon’s South Pole in order to exploit its water ice, discovered in 2009, both for life support purposes and to split into hydrogen and oxygen for use as rocket propellant.

The agency views its return to the Moon as a proving ground for an onward mission to Mars in the 2030s.

Cigarette habit will make you suffer from this deadly disease

In today’s changing lifestyle, people become latches of many things. Sometimes we continue to consume something without thinking anything, but slowly that thing starts making our body sick. One such addiction is cigarette. Cigarettes are very harmful for our health. Everyone knows this, but still continues to consume cigarettes.

Bladder cancer is found in both men and women. Cigarette smokers (active and passive) have a higher risk of bladder cancer. The cigarette causes the bladder cells to deteriorate due to which the infection starts spreading in it. When the infection spreads, the person starts having problems related to urine.

Know what is bladder cancer

Due to the formation of tumor in the bladder, the flesh is penetrated on the euro thallium layer of the blade. Due to which blood starts coming in urine. Sometimes, in some severe cases, a blood clot also accumulates in the urine, which is called hemechuria. Due to bleeding or blood clotting, it begins to spread outside the urine bag along with the spread of urine and kidney tube called medically invasive bladder tumor.

Symptoms

In the case of bladder cancer, blood or blood clots start to form in the urine, there is a complaint of irritation in the urine, there is a lot of pain while urin, unbearable pain in the back and pelvic.

inspection

After the problem of bleeding in urine, the patient is first examined for ultrasound to find out the size of the bladder. Treatment is decided by performing a CT scan to see the size of the tumor spread on the bladder.

treatment

The bladder tumors are cut and removed through a cystoscope using the transurethral resection of bladder (TURBT) technique. After this, chemotherapy and radiotherapy of the patient. Tumor biopsies are also performed to determine the cancer stage. In cases where the tumor has badly clogged the bladder, the urine sac is removed by the open radical cystectomy technique.

This disease can return again

If the bladder tumor is operated upon, it will not necessarily be completely correct. It can recur in up to 25 percent of patients. The medicine (immunotherapy) is put in the patient’s urine bag for protection.

Chemical threatens

Those working in chemical factories are also at risk of bladder cancer. People associated with rubber, leather, dye, paint and printing have this disease.
