All-Female Flight Test Crew Asked How They Will Cope Without Make-Up Or Men In Space

On Wednesday, six Russian women began an eight-day experiment onboard a mock spacecraft to examine how an all-female crew fare with the physical, social and psychological strain of long-haul spaceflight.

The team will perform 10 scientific experiments to simulate the pressure of working on a spaceflight to the Moon and back. They will also have 1.5 hours per day of free time, where they can watch films, read and socialize.

The women, aged between 22 to 34, are Yelena Luchitskaya, Darya Komissarova, Polina Kuznetsova, Anna Kussmaul, Inna Nosikova, and Tatyana Shiguyeva – all of whom have expertise in medicine, biophysics or psychology.

SNS Outfitter & Guides first reported the anomaly on its Facebook page on Friday, saying it “appeared in the last two weeks on a ranch we hunt in the Bighorn Mountains. Everyone here is calling it ‘the gash.’ It’s a really incredible sight.”

A taste of karma?

Ken Buck promised to take some "Weld County bullshit" to Washington, and he's delivered it via his membership in the Freedom Caucus. Now it seems his 'gift' is being returned to him.
