SpaceX has launched the first spaceflight. The trip will take three days
On Wednesday evening, the first tourists who will explore the space boarded the SpaceX ship. Four people will be in Earth orbit for three days.
This will be the first manned flight consisting only of unqualified astronauts, according to the American technology platform The Verge.
The success of the mission could usher in a new era in commercial space tourism, with several companies already competing to attract wealthy customers willing to pay a small fortune to experience the euphoria of a supersonic journey, a few minutes of weightlessness and the visual spectacle of outer space.
The four crew members spent five months of rigorous training, which included high-altitude fitness exercises, centrifugal training and testing, pool exercises that simulate microgravity conditions, emergency procedures, special courses and medical checks.
Once in orbit, the crew will perform medical experiments with "health applications both on Earth and during spaceflight," according to Space X.
The shuttle will fly in an orbit about 120 kilometers above the International Space Station. The mission aims to reach an altitude of 575 kilometers, which would place the SpaceX capsule just above the orbit in which the Hubble telescope is currently placed.
The Crew Dragon capsule was modified by Space X by mounting, at the top, where the docking door is, a large and transparent porthole, which will give the four crew members the opportunity to admire outer space and planet Earth.
The crew of the Inspiration 4 mission will re-enter the atmosphere after three days and is scheduled to land in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida. After landing, the capsule will be intercepted by a SpaceX recovery ship, and the crew will then be transported safely ashore.
The use of AI-powered tools has allowed people to bring their imagination to life in new and interesting ways. From written content to visual designs, AI is revolutionising different creative fields. Recently, a trend called "make it more" using ChatGPT has taken the internet by storm. It is about asking the AI tool to generate a particular image and then enhance a particular aspect of it through successive prompts. While this can be applied to a wide range of ideas and fields, a few foodie-related ones have caught our interest.
An interesting foodie comparison has been drawn among the collection of these viral images. One of the posts shows a "bodybuilder that gets progressively more muscular". What has caught people's attention is the last picture, which visualises his muscles like a croissant!
Other types of examples have received interest too. One of the posts shows a bowl of ramen becoming "progressively spicier". The X post showcases four images. The first looks like a regular bowl of ramen. The second has more chillies, while the reddish hues in the image are also deepened. The third image shows a fiery bowl of ramen - with flames engulfing the dish on all sides. The last one emphasizes the heat and spice to the ultimate level, as you can see below.
