    This shows little of the actual technology and skills required to make this happen...but it is awesome to see. The benefits of weightlessness are many...but few compare to the relaxation of structural needs.

    According to me, true question is; are we deserving to be in the space ? Why I'm asking that ? Because I think our current civilization is not enough for that. We have so many people still believe in dogmatic opinions and stories. How can we communicate with aliens ?

    Actually, I know space searchments not only about aliens, there might be so many useful information for us but I just wanted to state my own opinion.

    Also if you wonder about that topic, you can read that article too:
