Torres del Paine National Park, EcoCamp

Torres del Paine National Park, EcoCamp | American tourist | Scoop.it
Located in Patagonia in Torres del Paine National Park, EcoCamp’s unique dome structures strive to keep the nomadic spirit of the area’s ancient inhabitants alive. The Kawesqar people built their huts from found materials, and today EcoCamp’s geodesic domes have a similar structure; however, these luxurious huts come with panoramic windows, thick insulation and low-emission wood stoves. The resort gets all its energy from natural and renewable resources, and it has partnered with CarbonFree to offset all its carbon emissions.

Red dreams

Red dreams | American tourist | Scoop.it

ON JULY 20th 1969, when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on the Moon, it capped half a century of extraordinary progress in aviation. In the six and a half decades since the Wright brothers’ Flyer had staggered into the air near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, aeroplanes had shrunk the world, revolutionised warfare and created the modern travel industry. Technical records for altitude, speed and endurance had fallen helter-skelter.

 

For that reason, many of those watching the two astronauts on their black-and-white televisions could have been forgiven for thinking that going to the Moon was simply the first step in a human expansion into the solar system.

 

But it was not to be. The Apollo Moon programme was shut down early, and the world’s astronauts have spent the past 41 years pootling around in low-Earth orbit. Now, though, spurred by the rise of the buccaneering, private-sector “New Space” industry, which is offering access to the cosmos at prices far lower than government-backed rockets can manage, the old dream is enjoying a resurgence. Elon Musk, whose rocket firm SpaceX already flies cargo to the International Space Station (ISS), makes no secret of his Martian ambitions. Two privately run organisations in particular—Inspiration Mars, brainchild of Dennis Tito, an American tycoon who became the world’s first space tourist in 2001, and Mars One, run by Bas Lansdorp, a Dutch entrepreneur—have announced plans to send people to Mars without relying on the resources of a state.
