How long will Bob and Doug to be in space? Well, that depends. The Sci-Fi Channel produced a reality series based on the adventures of these two men. It was supposed to air last year, but it wasn’t. The network said it was postponing it due to poor reception in view of the deadly November storms. They also admitted that the bad weather was going to keep viewers from tuning in.
In spite of those flaws, How Long will Bob and Doug to be in space? I’ll answer that one with a very big question mark. It’s too bad that the network behind this hit reality series didn’t think the fans would enjoy watching their characters stuck in zero gravity for weeks on end. It just doesn’t make sense. Hopefully it will be back soon.
Bob is a retired astronaut who claims to have flown five different types of missions. He was an experienced flying instructor when he went into space. He claims to have never seen a bad storm in his flight and has never had any fear during space walks. So how long will he be in space? “I don’t know,” he states.
Doug is an engineering student who worked on many NASA programs in the 1980s. He claims that none of them ever had to launch humans into orbit. As far as how long will he be in the show, well, that’s another story. He’ll reveal all at the end of the series. For now, let’s just say that it appears that NASA hasn’t put him anywhere.
We can answer the question, How long will Bob and Doug to be in space based on how long they’ve been watching Earth. The answer is….about two and a half years. That’s how long NASA has been sending people into space. They are busy upgrading and modifying the existing capsules to suit the new capsules being built for longer space journeys. In other words, they’re making them smaller and more fit so that astronauts don’t have to lug huge bags of equipment.
If NASA isn’t doing that, then someone is doing that. It is my contention that whoever is modifying the capsules is getting very good at what they do. If they can figure out how to fit a human comfortably in one of those huge bags, then they’ve done a great job. How long will they be in space anyway?
It could take several months or several years. It really depends on how much sleep they get, how long they can stand up without falling down, how big they grow, how long they can stay in one position and so on. If NASA figured out a way for a man to survive in zero gravity for a long enough period of time, they would definitely have the information required for a show like this. That’s why the job of the contractors is to shorten that period by at least a few months. There are a lot of them around.
The reality of it all is that Bob and Doug will be on the show, on the television. And that is pretty exciting. No one knows how long they will be. All we can do is enjoy watching them work hard in their new weightless environment. That’s something we all look forward to.
Now some people might be wondering if Bob and Doug are going to be able to maintain an awareness of time while in space. That is a great question. One of the advantages of being in weightlessness is you don’t have any sense of time. You have only a few hours a day. But as long as the astronauts can work together, they will be able to work through the hours.
It is also interesting to note that the International Space Station is almost two decades old. So technically, that means that Bob and Doug have been going long enough. They have experienced all that the astronauts have, even though they haven’t actually been in one of those spaceships yet. As long as they are on Earth, they will go to space.
How long they will be in space, nobody knows. In the movies, it seems like they go into orbit right away. It may not happen in real life. But it is a nice theory. There are many different theories out there. We just don’t know.
