They plan to do this by strapping nuclear rockets to an amnesia heavy asteroid and launching into Mars causing the greenhouse gases to rise forming an atmosphere. Once again an interesting idea, but not very feasible for the same reasons as the previous idea. Lacking in realisticness, the theories make it hard to accept terraforming as a way to colonize Mars in the present time or near future. Due to the number of resources, energy, money, and time it will require to achieve even one of the
Each of these moons are 1 km in diameter, Charon is the biggest. Scientists are calling Pluto a “Dwarf” but size isn’t everything because great things come in small packages. It is not just size because another factor of being classified as a dwarf planet would be the planet has to clear its neighborhood. With this classification Neptune would also have to be classified as a dwarf planet. Scientists proposed a new “geophysical definition”, “A planet is a sub-stellar mass body that has never undergone nuclear fusion and that has sufficient
Mercury takes 59 Earth days to rotate and and 88 days to orbit so it spins three times for every two orbital periods. 2. The current atmosphere of Mars is mainly CO2 (95%), N2 (3%), oxygen, and water. The atmosphere’s density is 1% of Earth atmospheric density. The lack of atmosphere and proximity to the Sun makes the planets cold.
Colonizing Mars It takes nine months to get to the red planet. Nine long months in a spaceship without much food, oxygen, water, little living space, and only other people to keep you company. Colonization of Mars is not okay because the planet is deadly, the trip is long, and the atmosphere is frigid. Mars is very deadly, unlike Earth. On Mars, humans are exposed to radiation.
2017.) There are many resources that once depleted, cannot be created and must be obtained from other sources. Without phosphate, life will cease to exist. Luckily, phosphates can be found in abundance on Mars, and beyond. Three published students “predict phosphate release rates during water–rock interactions on Mars that are as much as 45 times higher than on Earth and phosphate concentrations of early wet martian environments more than twice those of Earth.” (Adcock, C. T., E. M. Hausrath, and P. M. Forster.
Speaking of the photographs released by NASA, there were photos with no stars and there were also photos with parallel sun rays with no diffusion. The point could be argued that there were no stars in the photograph because Nasa didn’t put them in, but in reality there are no stars because the moon reflects light which makes it hard to see stars, think of it like daytime on Earth except there is no blue sky. Another point that could be argued is that you can mimic parallel sun rays with no diffusion with lasers, but the only lasers available in 1969 were red and would cost billions just to have more made,and even if more were made they would still be colored red. In October of 2017, Sophie Weiner published an article explaining why the moon landing was impossible in 1969. “There are a few key reasons for this.
You know that time your friend told your little secret well this secret is a lot bigger. So half of America could not keep a secret that big. Some people say that the film used in the camera on the Moon should have melted but scientist could have used a cover for it. If the astronauts made it to Moon and they didn’t melt, then the material used for their suit could have been used to make a cover for the film. The people who don’t believe the landings were real, think the radiation ring around the Moon is too strong for astronauts to survive.
A volcano could have erupted which would have caused the same effect. If humans traveled to Mars, this would mean that the human race would not die out completely. Many humans in certain countries are constantly in danger because of the many wars in the world and terrorist attacks. There would be no wars on Mars, or terrorism because military weapons and terrorists would probably not be sent to Mars. Humans would be safer because of
Being human comes with baggage that earthbound individuals generally do not consider in their daily lives. This ranges from the need of life essentials, social interaction, and coping with the extreme conditions on another planet or in the void of space. These are the problems that scientist are faced with every day and are constantly discovering answers, but also turn to science fiction for solutions. The Martian and Packing for Mars present issues and new perspectives of space travel, and also gives possible solutions to issues like food and water needs and dealing with others. In The Martian, Mark Watney is stranded on Mars alone with limited food and water.
An organism which does not require water is never discovered. While some organisms require less water than others, e.g., cyanobacteria Chroococcidiopsis, for instance, requires minute quantity of water that biologists even think it may be able to survive on the arid surface of Mars. Every organism that is alive needs water to survive. In fact, without water, life on Earth would never have started. Water is also one of the reasons that there is no life on any other planet in the solar system.
