Scientists now believe humans can live in Red Planet and we should move there someday. The Red Planet, also known as Mars, is the fourth planet from Sun in our solar system. It is a cold desert planet with flat lands and largest volcanoes such as Olympus Mons. Mars is under the thin and cold atmosphere which may be the evidence that liquid water cannot exist. However this mysterious planet gives a clue of the possibility of liquid water existence which is the valleys and channels in Mars.
The Flat Earth model illustrates “a flat disk ringed by sea ice, which naturally holds the oceans in” (Selk 2). If one ripped open a globe from Antarctica to flatten it out, the correct configuration of continents and countries on the Flat disk would be roughly shown. The North Pole lies in the center with Antarctica spread out as a ring of ice surrounding the disk (“Circumnavigation” 1). British Naval Officer Sir James Clark Ross first to documented his discovery of the “vertical ice front to the open sea [that extends] more than 50 meters high above sea level” (“The Ice Wall” 1). Humans are unable to survive a trip through the Ice Wall because the temperature approaches absolute zero the deeper into the wall one treks (“The Ice Wall” 1).
The Space Race (1950-1960s), was an event that has influenced many generations of human race. In the Second half of the twentieth century, the world’s leading power, the United States of America and the Union of Socialist Republics (USSR) were engaged in a global competition, also known as the cold war, where they were trying to influence “non aligned” nations to take a side in the war. Military, political, scientific and diplomatic effort would affect the balance of power in the world, the loser will fall and will lost the ability to control his sphere of influence. Both nations went to the moon, however only the USA made it back to the Earth. The Space Race has revolutionized the world, people 's societal views , and helped humanity in several
Space settlement was planned by an idea of “extinction of humans” in coming years by “Garudam Lee”. So, all together we can define a space settlement as a home in space providing all needs like in earth. Just one difference will be that we are living in a home in space but not on earth. Practically it is very much difficult to build a space colony. For building a space colony there are many requirements needed.
Due to its low of gravity and lack of atmosphere, Mercury has no moons or rings. Mercury’s orbit is an ellipse rather than circular. In fact it has the least circular orbit of all the planets but the most eccentric. Another interesting fact about Mercury is that it is the only the second the hottest planet. Even though Venus is farther
During the winter on Mars temperatures can reach up to -143 degrees celsius. During the summer temperatures can reach up to 35 degrees celsius. Since there is only 0.13% oxygen in Mars’s atmosphere, the astronauts can 't breathe in the oxygen needed to survive. In the book, “Mars - a new view of the red planet” by Giles Sparrow, it has an idea of how to to change the atmosphere in Mars to make it liveable for all living creatures. They say we should “pump” greenhouse gases into the thin air which would create a global warming effect that would melt the polar caps.
Without going in details, a conservative rough estimate is that Earth carries with it about 3 global oceans of water – 1 global ocean on top what we see on surface; and 2 global oceans down below where it sits silently with the minerals. 3 global oceans may sound like a lot, but it is not – especially when compared to the total mass of the earth. By volume, it makes up only less than 1/10th of 1% of the earth’s mass. One way to visualize: Visualize earth as a solid ball of 8,000 miles in diameter with only a film of water layer, 10 miles deep max at the surface. Another way to visualize: Visualize earth as a 160 pounds body (a typical human body weight), it has only (160x0.001) 0.16 pounds of water which is 2½ ounce or a mouthful of water at the most.
Emma Lang Mr. Miller Class #2 Rosetta Mission Research Paper 2/19/18 Rosetta Mission Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel 4 billion miles into space in a different atmosphere to discover a dark and dusty comet? The mission of comet 67P/C-G was to accompany it into the solar system, they did this by deploying the philae lander with the help of NASA and making this the first controlled comet. This mission helped scientists begin to understand the changes in the season as the comet left the inner solar system on its outbound leg. The history, current perceptions, and future implications of the Rosetta Mission all help scientists with the understanding of the origins of solar system life and earth. The journey of the
The great big planet that humans call home, is actually nothing but a tiny fraction of a pixel on a screen or image compared to the visible universe, and that is just the known portion of the universe. Along with the reality check of how small Earth is comes the realization of how fragile the planet is in terms of what else is out there. With this knowledge there must be great dangers in space. These dangers are called Space Hazards. These Space Hazards serve as a threat to the solar system and to life as we know it.
Introduction: The population density of the world is 57.376 people per square kilometer of the earth’s surface (). This includes all of the world’s oceans and Antarctica, which are uninhabitable. Additionally, climate change and diminishing natural resources are putting increased strain on the world economies. A clear solution to the problems is space exploration. While still in the explorative stage, making the step to colonization has massive implications.
