ISS To Get Man Cave

samzenpus posted more than 4 years ago | from the floating-cheese-curls dept.

Robotics 123

Nancy_A writes "There might be a new favorite hang-out for astronauts aboard the International Space Station later this year. The Leonardo Multi Purpose Logistics Module (MPLM) will become a permanent module on the station, and will be brought up on the STS-133 mission, scheduled for September 2010. The new module might provide a haven for astronauts to get away from it all. '"The thought is, the PMM might become sort of a 'man cave,'" said Mike Kinslow, the Boeing payload manager at the Kennedy Space Center. "It won't have all the background noise of fans, computers and other equipment running like in the laboratories, so it will be a quieter atmosphere that might appeal to the astronauts during their off-duty hours."' Plus, NASA's Robonaut 2, or R2 will be brought up on the same flight. Any chance R2 could be programmed to serve drinks or bring food into the man cave?"

"Man Cave?" Really? That's just wrong on so many levels, I don't know where to start.

Re:Oh, Mike... (-1, Flamebait)

"Man Cave" is a perfectly normal and acceptable term for any place that a female would never EVER go to.

Like your basement.

Re:Oh, Mike... (2, Informative)

ZeroExistenZ (721849) | more than 4 years ago | (#31608898)

No, the term "man cave" is used by idiotic jock-wannabes.

The concept has been introduced in the 90s in the "new man" pseudo-psychology thinking of/for women.
The "mancave"-state of mind is described in "Men are from Mars, Women from Venus", where they describe men need some off-time staring in the fire to wind down, while women need to verbalize and socialize to achieve the same thing.

Hence resulting in conflict as the "man" wants to chil lout, watch a game, do man-stuff to process his day or forget about it, while the wife is verbalizing hoping for an emotional response, while the man is just "mhhmmhhh"-ing resuling in a perceived neglect on the wifes' side.

Though, this representation of "man" vs "woman" with their mismatching doesn't compliment my worldview as I find it very single-sided (one author feeding the masses what they think they want to hear taking it as truth) and a bit flawed kindof perception. (projection from within himself outwards to the world, which reeks a bit of sense of superiourity and inflexibility in one's ability to rationalize and come to new insights: "my experience and way I'm navigating life can be extrapolated to absolute truth to apply to most or even all man and with my absolute knowledge I can guide people to be more as I".

Okay, I've had a think and I believe I know where to start.

1.) It conjures up images of a Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor in space, "ooh, ooh, ohh. Look, I've turbo charged the vacuum toilet to AAIIIiii."

2.) It's such a dated cultural reference that the gay subculture has adopted the term ironically to refer to their rectums.

3.) There are women up there, too, right? So, claiming you got some hot action in your man cave, well, see point two.

4.) It is, and always has been, a corny phrase. Say it will be your "fortress of solitude" or something.

Re:Oh, Mike... (0)

Ever read 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus?' Unfortunately, I have. That's where the phrase 'man cave' comes from. It's a stupid phrase based on the stupid idea that men are all neanderthals who need the solitude of a nice cave to unwind. We're not all like that. For instance, I'm actually pretty fun at parties and consider socializing relaxing. Like a girl, if you believe the book.

Commands to the robot (1, Funny)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#31606722)

You should be able to program the drink-serving robot so that you can utter a quick command without say missing something on the space-sized big screen tv. Some command for example to get drinks for two could be D2 (meaning drinks for two). You would thus, command the robot by getting its attention and ordering by uttering thusly: R2D2!
If you could threaten to have a restraining bolt installed if it should disobey, things could get very cosy.

Re:Commands to the robot (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#31608326)

My bet is, they start with the R2 name and later "magically" add D2 for a newer or extended version of that robot. Totally not planned of course, because that would look horribly nerdy.

Lots of giggling and sad head-shaking will ensue.

No, it's not a "man cave", and no, the R2 robot will not be used to serve drinks. It'll be used to investigate the potential of robots to perform EVA duties.

The article states that at the moment it doesn't have enough radiation shielding yet, but it will have it and be ready in 4 months. From the article:

"Turning Leonardo into a permanent module will take some work, said NASA Payload Manager Joe Delai. "Once it returns from this flight we will beef up the external shield and change things internally to become a permanent module. It will be about a four month process to get it ready."

Thats why it will be re-launched in September this year. And when it is relaunched and made a permanent module it will become their 'man cave'.
