Mankind’s desire for space exploration has always been very strong, and scientists from all over the world are working hard for this. With the development of science and technology, the dream of mankind to explore space is gradually realized, and more and more research information is learned .
In the process of exploring space, scientists need to perform strict data calculations in advance to ensure that the spacecraft's trajectory and data are not bad. There have been disasters caused by data errors in history. Therefore, all countries in the world have very strict management and control of space.
Under such circumstances, astronauts have to go to the sky with a pistol. This seems to be a fantasy. In fact, this is almost a common practice in the world, because in the history of human spaceflight , There have been profound lessons.
The matter should start from the Soviet era. In March 1965, Soviet astronaut Leonov became the first astronaut in history to conduct extravehicular activities in space. After Leonov completed his space journey, he began to return to Earth on the Soviet Union's Ascendant II.
After Leonov began to return to Earth, the Soviet Union’s Ascendant II spacecraft had a problem. The spacecraft’s automatic navigation system suddenly stopped working. The spacecraft without an automatic navigation system required the astronauts to manually operate it.
Astronaut Leonov returned to the earth’s atmosphere by manual navigation, but at this time an unexpected situation occurred. During the descent, the spacecraft Starting to spin, the astronaut Leonov had to deviate from the originally planned route.
The spacecraft finally landed in the snow-covered coniferous forest of Siberia. After the spacecraft landed, the ground responders found that this place could not be landed. Rescue helicopter, forced byReluctantly, the rescuers at the time could only drop things for the astronauts from the helicopter.
Aerospace Leonov finally chose to open the hatch and walked out of the return cabin, but Leonov had to face the wild bears and wolves in the jungle.The attack, fortunately, Leonov spent two nights in horror without incident. Soviet ground rescuers rescued the astronauts by skiing.
The accident in the Soviet Union caused a lot ofThe sensation played a vigilant role in the development of aerospace industry. Although astronauts have enough food and water in the return capsule, if an accident like the Soviet Union occurs, the astronauts must have the ability to protect themselves.
The quality of the astronauts themselves are excellent, and many astronauts are of military origin, so at this time, equipping them with a pistol can help the astronauts protect their lives at critical times.
In the dangerous environment of barren mountains and wilds, guns and ammunition can undoubtedly serve as a This guarantee is not only reflected in the protection of safety, but also in the psychological role of astronauts.
Weapons are like the second life of soldiers. When holding hands, astronauts will have more confidence in their own situation. For astronauts, this kind of confidence is extremely important, because there are many unknowns in space and many unpredictable dangerous situations will be encountered.
Astronauts carrying guns into space, seemingly unlikely small movements can play an important role at critical times. Of course, I hope that such a role will never be used.
