The worst thing that we usually do is equate travel with luxury. You should aim for a travel plan that works within your own set budget and does not make you feel like a beggar in an unknown place. Don’t await for a trust fund or a high-paying job for your travels!

Hitchhiking is all about taking a lift from a running vehicle and making your travel journey complete. This is efficient at times when you want to cut down your travel cost. You need not take a lift in the first car that stops by; use your own judgment. Don’t presume everyone is a psychotic killer.

Travel Myths 3: Strangers are dangerous

There is a general fear of staying and hiking up with strangers on a travel place which is unknown to you. By far and large, it’s a true thing that the world is unsafe and dangerous. But you can trust sometimes.

Travel Myths 4: Travel is made only for the young and single

Ofcourse, the young and single are crazy about travelling, but who the adults can’t have their travel plans and dreams. You can head up for any location based on your passion for exploring. You may enjoy a superficial family time at an exotic location and still feel young!

The first-ever satellite to test possible solutions in cleaning up space junk has been deployed by the International Space Station (ISS) and would soon begin experiments in orbit.

The Britain-built satellite, named RemoveDEBRIS mission, is one of the world’s first attempts to tackle the build-up of dangerous space debris orbiting the Earth, the British space agency said in a statement late on Friday.

The 100-kg RemoveDebris spacecraft will attempt to capture simulated space debris using a net and a harpoon while also testing advanced cameras and radar systems.

The experiment is important as there are thousands of pieces of space debris circulating the planet, many travelling faster than a speeding bullet, posing a risk to valuable satellites and even the International Space Station itself, the report stated.

Once the experiments are complete, it will unfurl a drag sail to bring itself and the debris out of orbit, where it will burn up as it enters the earth’s atmosphere.

“If successful, the technologies found in RemoveDEBRIS could be included in other missions in the very near future,” said Guglielmo Aglietti, Professor at the University of Surrey.

The RemoveDEBRIS mission is led by the varsity and built by the world’s leading small satellite manufacturer Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL), with technology on board designed by Airbus.
