What are the disadvantages of unmanned space craft?
there are no men in it
There ent none
there is no man in the space craft
There are good and bad points about manned and unmanned space travel. I think that it should be manned because humans can do more than robots!
Scientists sent an unmanned space craft to Mars to collect data.
Several advantages; mainly: A human needs food, air, and protection. An unmanned craft needs none of these; its use of energy and other "extras" is much less than for a human. An unmanned craft can be sacrificed; there is no moral obligation to return it safely to Earth. In summary, all this makes an unmanned spacecraft much cheaper than a manned spacecraft.
No astronaut has ever been to Neptune. In fact, no unmanned space craft has been sent to Neptune.
Use of unmanned space craft eliminates the years of training needed for astronauts. It allows for missions of much longer durations, as well as increased distances beyond where humans can safely travel.
The most obvious answer to your question is the fact that people have to return to earth, while an unmanned craft can stay in space infinitely. Manned spacecraft require things like oxygen, water, food and communications equipment, none of which are required by an unmanned spacecraft. That means unmanned spacecrafts can be sent into space for a fraction of the cost of a manned spacecraft. So basically, it's much cheaper and safer to send unmanned… Read More
This is because sending men up into space costs a lot more money than sending probes or other unmanned space craft. When you send a crew of people up you need to provide their living space, food, air, etc so they can survive. Holding all that would make the ship larger and cost more than a smaller unmanned ship. Also unmanned crafts can travel longer distances. No human wants to go on a 10 year… Read More
an unmanned space probe is a satellite orbiting around the planet
The capsules have several thrusters (rocket engines) attached to them to move the capsule. Capsules that are manned have a control panel inside the craft for the astronauts to control the turns and maneuvers of the craft. There are also unmanned capsules that have control panels off the craft that control it.
No Russian has landed on the moon, although they where the first to get an unmanned space craft to the lunar surface in 1959 (the probe didn't "land" so much as it "hit").
The First EVER spacecraft was the unmanned Soviet Union's Luna 2. The Second and first MANNED mission was America's Apollo 11
Yes several unmanned space craft have made landings on mars. For more info go to the related link (Mars landing) below
The Sputnik craft were very small, unmanned satellites. But the Sputnik 2 carried a dog called Laika into space. The first man in space was Yuri Gagarin, aboard Vostok 1.
The first unmanned rocket to fly in space was the Russian Sputnik.
Yes, Voyager II has. (Voyager II is an unmanned space probe).
All space telescopes are unmanned - unless you want to count the small telescopes on the Shuttle or IIS as space telescopes.
The manned missions were carried there by the Apollo craft. The unmanned craft were under the Pioneer, Ranger, and Surveyor missions.
No, at least, no person. Unmanned craft have landed on Mars.
Unmanned machinery space is space, defined for vessels with Machinery System Automation, in which no personnel found during a defined period of time.
Unmanned space probes in the early years of the Space Race have been sent to close to planets like Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.
manned space probe is when there are people traveling in a spaceship. whereas unmanned is when there is nobody in a ship unmanned is launched for the first time to a planet to see that a manned can land.
Like all space telescopes, it is unmanned.
A space craft is an object in space such as a Spaceship or Satellite.
The United States. The Space Shuttle is the first reusable orbital spacecraft. The first craft to exceed 100 km (about 60 miles) in altitude was the experimental X-15 aircraft in 1959, also created by the United States. The capsule from the unmanned Gemini 2 test mission was reused for the also unmanned test flight of the Air Force's Manned Orbital Laboratory in 1966.
A space probe is an unmanned spacecraft sent into space.
They were unmanned, although Sputnik 2 carried a dog into space.
What are advantages and disadvantages of sending crews to space on space explorations and space probes?
pros: We can learn lots of things by sending crews and space probes. For without space probes how would we be able to tell the weather. cons: Many humans can die in space if there is a problem with the space craft and billions of dollars will be wasted.
Eight years depending on where in orbit they are and speed the craft is going
No. Yuri Gagarin never flew in the Space Shuttle at all. He was a Soviet Cosmonaut and was the first man in space. The craft he flew was a Vostok Capsule, the Soviet one-man craft that was used for their first two space flights. The Space Shuttle is an American space craft and didn't fly until 1981, just over 20 years after Gagarin's flight and 13 years after his death during a training flight in… Read More
Magellan was NASA's unmanned space probe for Venus; Venus Express is ESA's current probe...and Venera was the old Soviet spacecraft that explored Venus.
Spacecraft is the generic term there are both manned and unmanned types such as satellites for the unmanned variety.
a space mission is a journey made by a manned or unmanned vehicle into space for a specific reason.
A spacecraft flys in space and an air craft flys in well... The sky
The main difference - is size ! With a crewed space vehicle, you have to make it big enough to accommodate the people, and include their life-support systems, propulsion etc. With an unmanned probe - it only needs to be big enough to house the instrumentation and power (batteries & solar panels).
The unmanned space probe is, all things being equal, cheaper and involves no risk of life to personnel. The craft can be built without regard to life-support, emergency escape, etc, can conveniently burn up in the outer atmosphere with no problems. It can be up for years--many satellites are--and transmit accurate data without problems unless something goes wrong, as many Mars probes have gone under. But many times when spacecraft have broken down, they are… Read More
No. Galileo was an unmanned space-probe.
because it travels to far.
A flight with no humans on board.
No space craft or person has landed on pluto.
It was the unmanned spacecraft called Surveyor 1 in 1966.
One of the advantages of the Apollo space mission was that its crew was able to perform complex missions such as on-site repairs. Disadvantages include cost of operation, the craft was extremely heavy, and the possibility of injury or loss of life is ever present.
Yes, it is unmanned. The HST is controlled from the ground by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, USA.
No Russians never crashed a maned spacecraft on the moon. A unmanned craft i think so.
To an astronaut in a space craft, the sky appears to be black.
In a space shuttle usually but now that has been decommisioned the only way to get into space is to build your own (safe) space craft or go to Russia where you can get into space using their space craft.
an unmanned space toilet lol lol lol :) From sam and alex
It isn't better, only cheaper. It is better to probe unmanned, to see what it will take to go and come back alive.
