  Why can’t we fly a plane into space, what stops it from just flying higher and higher until we are in space? Well, there a several issues but assuming we are in something like a normal jet airliner, then one of the main problems is the air or lack of it as we get closer to space.

Described as being as fine as talc but as rough as sandpaper, it also has properties that make it dangerous for both men and machines and has been cited as a bigger problem for future astronauts than radiation by some scientists. The lunar surface is covered in a thin layer of dust which has been created by the bombardment of meteorites and micrometeorites over millions of years. These …

Its been 157 years since Darwin published his ground breaking book, the Origin of Species, in which he proposed the theory of evolution back in 1859.
