人类进入太空,从宇宙看地球,从月亮上看地球,从火星上看地球……我们的脚步越来越远,每迈出新的一步却从不忘回头看一看我们的家园。好像拥有了造物主之眼,在广袤无垠的宇宙背景前,这颗蓝色星球显得格外脆弱温暖。

真正能亲眼见到此景的人毕竟是极少数,大众如我都是在银幕上一窥究竟。而此类影片又以米国最积极热血,拍出来的场景也最能打动我们的感官。NASA也越发被奉为神样的存在。

NASA宇航员眼中的世界或许是这样~

他们无疑是一群高智商动物,而在各类大片中几乎又被表现为既酷又帅,如这样~

不过随着全民娱乐不断沸腾,NASA也褪去神秘面纱,宇航员的职业生活被逐渐玩坏,画风也跟着悄悄变了,今天我们就来为你揭秘美国大片里不一样的NASA生活。

另外,如有兴趣加入,NASA最近放出了一份招募帖,网院的有志青年们可以关注哈。

关于星际日常,NASA绝对不会告诉你这些

Prettymuch everyone barfs in space at some point.

每个人都逃不过吐啊吐的命运 ▎

Hadfield said that everyone throws up andthat it’s not a big deal because, well, you get to be in space. He is a big fanof the NASA barf bags, too. “[They] have great big towels integral with thebag, so when you’re finished throwing up, you can wipe your whole face off, andget it out of your nose, and then stuff it all inside the bag.”

哈德菲尔德是太空呕吐袋的狂热粉丝,他告诉我们几乎每个人99.999%都会吐得非常嗨。但其实这并不重要,你只要随手抓一个巨形呕吐袋,注意这种袋子是自带毛巾的呦,吐完可以直接用袋子内侧把脸和鼻子搞干净,并不会像在地球一样狼狈。

Thespace shuttles used to smell pretty rank.

宇宙飞船里的空气也不是那么浪漫 ▎

Hadfield said that the space shuttles usedto smell pretty bad. “The toilet is right there in the middle of everything.You have up to seven people, and it’s a tiny little ship. It’s like sevenpeople in a camper van with a porta-potty for two weeks, where you can neverget out.”

有时候空间站里的气味真的让人无法忍受。“想象一下,所有东西飘在空中而厕所就在它们中间,窄小的空间往往要挤下7个人。就像7人挤在一辆露营车里,只有一个小便盆,且2个礼拜不能下车”!

But the International Space Station smellsfine.

但国际空间站的味道就舒服哆啦 ▎

“In five months on the space station, I never once smelled any traceof another human being,” Hadfield said. He attributes this to the smaller crewsize and better ventilation system.

哈德菲尔德说国际空间站工作人员比较少,通风系统也给力,味道简直怡人。

Theold Russian space station Mir smelled “like grandma’s cellar.”

老式俄罗斯空间站闻起来像奶奶家的地下室。 ▎

It smelled “like grandma’s cellar … musty,damp, and kind of dark,” said Linenger.

永远有股发霉、潮湿的阴暗感觉。

Pooltraining doesn’t really teach you how to move around in space.

训练极其有限,根本不会真正教会你怎么在飞船里挪动 ▎

Moving around in the pool gives you a senseof being weightless, Curbeam said, but in terms of moving in zero gravity, it’sthe total opposite of what you experience in space. “It’s easier to start,harder to stop in space than in the water,” he said.

一般在水中的训练给你一种进入失重环境的错觉,柯布说,但是真正的失重环境跟你体验过的感觉完全相反。动起来容易停下难的感觉比你在水中明显多了。

SpaceShuttle crew members sometimes get wake-up music picked by their families.

很多宇航员经常会被他们家人准备的铃声闹醒 ▎

Curbeam said that ground control will oftenplay wake-up music to astronauts on Space Shuttle missions and that the musicis often picked by family members. Curbeam’s daughter once selected Queen,knowing he was a big fan. Parazynski said that once his son picked the StarWars theme before his big spacewalk on his last flight. “My son’s name is Luke… and I’m a Skywalker, so it all worked out,” he said.

柯布说,地面控制中心经常会用宇航员家人准备的音乐把他们叫醒。柯布的女儿有次为他找了最爱的皇后乐队的歌。布拉斯基在最后一次飞行中做太空行走前,他儿子为他放了《星球大战》主题歌。

Thereare things that astronauts have no control over, and they can terrify even thetoughest among them.

很多情况会在宇航员的控制范围外,连胆子最大的人也会被吓坏。▎

Chris Hadfield said one of the scariestthings he saw was watching a shooting star while in space. “If you want to justtalk raw fear, to watch a shooting star from the other side of the sky is ahumbling thing to see, because it’s no longer just a pretty sparkler like afree firework in the sky.” Instead, he said, it is something that you have nocontrol over that could kill you or destroy your spacecraft at any time.

克莉丝回忆一次最让她害怕的经历是在太空中看见一颗流星划过。跟在地球上看完全两样,流星没有尾巴,就像天空中的一颗爆裂的花火。让人心惊的是,在太空中任何东西都随时能毁掉你,而你对此完全无力招架。

Yourbody has a tough time adjusting to gravity after you return.

重新落地后,你的身体将面临非常艰难的自我调节。▎

After a shorter shuttle mission, Hadfieldsaid, “you’re a little bit woozy and … your muscles aren’t in good tone, butyou’re OK.”

哈德菲尔德说,当你完成短期任务重归地球,你会感觉头晕,胃部不适等等,不过这些都会过去的。

Yourbody has a REALLY tough time after longer periods in space.

如果是长期外太空任务,你的身体将面临更艰难的恢复期。▎

Spending half a year in space is adifferent story. Hadfield said constant exercise during his longest missionkept him strong, but that astronauts have zero ability to balance once theyreturn. “All you want to do when you land is throw up,” he said.

跟短期任务比,半年的任务期将是完全不同的故事。哈德菲尔德在出任务期间会持续锻炼保证自己身体状态良好,但当你落地后依然是然并卵。“你想到唯一能做的事就是吐。”

And, finally, it can change how you viewthe world

当然,进入太空会重置你看世界的视角。跟看美国大片是完全不一样哒。▎

Linenger said that the color green reallystuck him when he returned to Earth. “The color green is just such a beautiful,soothing color and I could just sit in my backyard and just look up at thetrees and the wind blowing and just be totally content.”

回到地球后对绿色完全没有抵抗力,宇航员兰格说他回来之后会被各种植物的颜色吸引,能一个下午完全沉浸在后花园的风景中不能自拔。

Living in the closed “ecosystem” of thespace station, too, made him think about the fragility of our own planet. “Youlook down at the Earth, you see the same basic thing — you’re a closedecosystem,” he said. “That perspective shift is probably the greatest gift thatI received being in space. And it happened in space, it happened at biggerlevels, and now it’s still with me on the ground.”

宇宙空间站的狭小,宇宙的广袤无垠,这种强烈反差让宇航员觉得面前的蓝色星球是如此脆弱。

加入NASA,也没有你想的那么难

This could be us, and NASA ain’t playin. They’re accepting applicants from December 14th to mid-February to become SPACE CADETS!

你真的还是有戏哈!这次NASA可是来真的!从12月14日到明年2月中,他们都在招候补宇航员也!

There are no age requirements and you don’t need to have 20/20 vision.

对年龄并没有严格要求,是近视眼也关系不大呦。

But you do need to be a US citizen, have a bachelor’s degree in engineering, biological science, physical science, or math, and three years of related experience.

但确实需要你是美国公民,并且拥有工程学、生物学、自然学的相关学历,且要有点相关经验哈。

Physically, you have to be a certain height and not have too high of blood pressure.

身体素质上,身高要达到标准且没有高血压。

Do you have what it takes? Think of the Instagram opportunities.
