Was space travel once science fiction?
Jules Verne wrote From Earth To The Moon. He had astronauts flying from the state of Florida to the moon. This was about one hundred years before it happened for real.
Yes! You should watch : Lost in Space, The time tunnel, etc... If you like sci-fi A LOT of science was once imagined, postulated and explored in literature, film and eventually cinema. The OP is correct, but I'm just expanding the answer. Almost all science was at one time "fiction" simply by the antonym of "fact." However, it was not always published in what one would call a traditional manner of "SciFi." Once, in Primary School I had to do a report on Luna (the Moon). I found a book in the School library that contained some wild ideas, wildly incorrect observations and calculations regarding Space itself, and a really wild closing to the chapter on Luna; "...perhaps someday Man may journey to the Moon, or beyond!" I am NOT making that up! Cheers!
if you mean time machine then no. It is only science fiction also known as syfy. science fiction is only a theory of scientist. cell phones were only once science fiction.

Ray Bradbury once said that science fiction is the only fiction that deals with technology and the problems we face today. It allows us to predict what problems might come about because of an invention or medical discovery.
the stuff could happen and the phenomenon has a sort of scientific "explanation" behind it, plus science fiction usually is more futuristic. Science fiction stories are based on a reasonable extrapolation of known science and technology, and once that extrapolation is made it cannot be changed arbitrarily without explanation to the reader/viewer. H. G. Wells & Isaac Azimov stories are generally excellent examples. Because fiction is included. Take away the fiction and you have a… Read More
Not from Earth. There are a couple of reasons. There is no 'air' in space, so there would be nothing to blow the kite once it left the Earth's atmosphere. The second is that the length of the string would make it too heavy to get that high. The size of the kite would have to be huge in order to support enough string to get that high. There are 'solar winds' that come off… Read More
It's not an idiom. It's just a sentence -- to be young again means that you are once more younger in age. This can be literally -- like in a science fiction time travel story -- or it can be figurative -- like your mind is young again.
Black holes are considered dangers in space travel because if once caught we cannot come outside of it.
Science Fiction isn't as popular as it once was. The enthusiasm for a 'new frontier' and the upwardly mobility of the US were things of the 30s, 40's and 50's. In the 60s the emphasis started to shift more onto the social sciences and cosmic awareness sort of nonsense. Now-a-days only people who are truly interested in science like science fiction.
there is, there's once a dog launched in a rocket and it stays until it's dies in space

Once you have reached space, build a new spaceship at the Holopad on the Pewter Moon. You will need to travel to the three planets (Jungle, Ice, and Fire) and defeat the mechanical creatures there. Once you have all three of the Space Knights with you, you can travel to the Giant Asteroid in the asteroid belt, and battle the Binary Bard to save the Princess. (see related questions)
No a sound wave can't travel through space because in space there is no air and sound waves need a medium to pass though. If you don't know what a medium is, it is something the waves or rays travel through. If you have ever watched a rocket blast off and you couldn't here the rocket make any noise once it left Earth that is why.
once, space was smaller than the head of a pin, but something crashed into it and caused space to expand at greater and greater speed. It is still expanding today.
first there was made a rocket which could be used only once and after some time there was built a space shuttle which could be used several times.
Once the realm of science fiction, bionics is slowly but surely becoming a reality. Advances in medical prostheses and computer technology are making the dream of building a bionic human a reality.
When you say "travel to space" I hope you mean get out of the troposphere, cause that's what I mean. It takes about 5 mins. to get out of the troposphere. (The troposphere is the first layer of the atmosphere) Once you get high up in the mesosphere, you can look down and actually see planet earth. -LIGHTNINGSCIENCE
Because we use satellites in space to relay radio and TV signals. Of course, once we realized that light and heat are, themselves, electromagnetic waves, it became obvious. The light from the Sun manages to travel through the vacuum of space to reach the Earth.

The space shuttle is a reusable space vehicle; it goes into space and it comes back, and can be used again for futher missions into space. Whereas, previously space travel was done by rockets that could be used only once. The rockets would be used up after a single use. Shuttles, therefore, are the kind that can shuttle back and forth.
The shuttles have the capacity to carry 8 astronauts, but usually only 7 are on each mission. Sometimes the extra seat will be taken by the astronaut being returned to earth from the International Space Station.
Star Trek was once called Wagon Train to the Stars. Many of the themes in the TV show and movies show humanism. Data and Spock both struggled with the concept of being human.
Yes. Planet X is the one we haven't discovered yet. Since we haven't actually discovered it, we know nothing about it. Once Planet X is actually discovered, it will be given a real name, freeing up "Planet X" for the _next_ undiscovered planet. Planet X is also the name of the planet used in many old-time "space opera" science fiction movies.
The International Space Station travels in orbit around Earth at a speed of 17,500 miles per hour (that's about 5 miles per second!). This means that the Space Station orbits Earth (and sees a sunrise) once every 92 minutes!

Most VHF and UHF radio transmissions travel in "line of sight"; if you can't see it, you can't communicate with it. So TV stations build taller and taller and taller antenna towers to lengthen the line of sight. What if your antenna was 23,000 MILES high? You could transmit to a third of the world; with three such satellites, you could talk to the ENTIRE world at once. A science fiction author named Arthur C… Read More

Once it has managed to escape the Earths gravitational pull and then the suns gravitational pull, a space craft will have enough speed to carry on indefinitely, so long as it does not collide with anything. If it has enough fuel and thrust to get up to this escape speed, then it wont stop, since there will be no forces to slow it down in space, even once the engines have stopped.
The object of Astro Knights is to get into space using the crashed saucer Excalibur. Once there, you travel to three planets inhabited by robot creatures and defeat them. Then you can travel to the lair of the villain to rescue the Princess. (for a complete solution, see the related question)

The first dog in space, Laika rode aboard Sputnik II in 1957. Laika survived lift off and proved that human space travel would be possible. Laika didn't even orbit around Earth once due to her loss of oxygen.
Once you have replaced the broken green fuel rod, enter the coordinates from the missing journal page (X-56 Y-52) to launch the saucer. You will need the list that the queen gives you, to travel to other planets once you get into space.
because once on a long rainy day this man named science did science so he called it science.
Yes it is. It is about dragons, magic and travelling back in time, and that's EXACTLY was sciece-fiction is! It is things that don't exicst in the real...
Get the hovercraft from the mill attic and fix the saucer that is crashed out in the swamp to the right of the mill. Once you set the coordinates to the Pewter Moon, you can travel there. You will build a new spaceship to travel to the three planets that the space knights have gone to. (see the related questions)
Yes they have. The Americans and Soviets used to be competitors in space travel during the Cold War, but once the Cold War ended so did the Space Race. Americans and Soviet have flown into space together and completed many missions together. Currently, the US will rely on Russia for transporting American astronauts into space as NASA shut this program down due to financial cut backs.

Yes, so long as there is no bright light to force their pupils to contract, thus letting in less light. Science fiction shows make people think that once you are in space, stars are bright enough to be seen through a window in a well-lit room. This simply is not true.

Once you have completedthe island you are on, you jump into your balloon and hit travel. Once you have hit travel you chose which island you would like to go to. You do not have had to complete the island to travel, you can travel at any time.
The human skeletal system is built to support your weight. Once you have no weight, it stops functioning correctly. Astronauts coming home from the MIR space station had significant bone deterioration after their 6 month stay in space. M uscles don't work as well either, very little energy used to lift stuff in a weightless environment.
He was the first men to travel up into space. He had orbited the earth once in 1 hour and 29 minutes. (not entirely sure about the earths orbit because some suggest he did and other's suggest he did not.)
No. You only space once. The only time that you space more than once is to indent a paragraph if the computer will not allow you to use tab to do so.
Science tends to avoid ruling out anything in an absolute sense, since there can always be new discoveries, and many things that were once thought to be impossible (such as travel to the moon) have subsequently proved to be possible, but nonetheless, there seems to be a very strong probability that it will never be possible to travel back in time. Even if it were theoretically possible to do so, in practice it would be… Read More
