In The Martian, Mark Watney is stranded on Mars alone with limited food and water. He turns to botany and basic chemistry to survive by creating food and water. Although a work of science fiction, the way he generated food and water is plausible, and most likely achievable for the first settlers on Mars. But how is it possible to grow food on a planet that does not have much nutrients in the soil? We are currently doing it on planet Earth with the Biosphere II.
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
You start to wonder if we really could colonize Mars, and if it would be worth it. You think about the risks involved, the mechanics and the sacrifice behind trading our home planet for another. Red Planet focused quite a bit on the interpersonal relations between people stuck on a ship for half a year to get to Mars, the idea of colonizing the planet with the one female that came on the trip, and how the science of the trip was important, but the other real value was human life. Greg Bear’s book, Moving Mars, also gives the reader hope that Mars is a real possibility, but it puts a lot of focus on colonization issues, such as who’s in charge of what, and to what extent the colony has to depend on/bend to the will of their home planet. Those are things we would need to think about if we wanted to eventually move to Mars and colonize it.
And firstly will be abut the benefits of people going to Mars. The first benefit for people going to Mars is that we are able to expand our presence on the solar system and universe, and by expanding our species we for ex, if there was a steroid that killed the dinosaur species some of the human population might be able to Survive and prevent extinction form happening. Another benefit for humans in exploring Mars is that they are able to discover new creatures around 10,000 times faster than the best space crafts/rover that exists according to Bill Nye which is a big boost for humans to find new thing faster and more efficient which could result from the creatures something new such as new type of animal to breed, make medicine,
Walls in spacecraft does not only need to be strong but also safe for the astronauts, if they catch fire or melt for the high heat, then the plastic can not be used. Pure polyethylene is very flammable and it would be very dangerous for astronauts in the spaceship6. I think that in the next future will be possible to use polyethylene to build our spaceships, it is easy to shape it like any component of the spacecrafts and it is 2.6 times lighter than aluminium6, but for now we will have to use other methods to solve the
Mr. Spock uses the hand-held device to survey new planets. The Lab-on-a-Chip Application Development - Portable Test System (LOCAD-PTS) is a handheld device for rapid detection of biological and chemical substances on surfaces aboard the International Space Station. Astronauts will swab surfaces within the cabin, mix swabbed material in liquid form to the LOCAD-PTS, and obtain results within 15 minutes on a display screen. The study 's purpose is to effectively provide a rapid
(Main Idea): In the words of Stephen Hawking “Sooner or later disasters such as an asteroid collision or a nuclear war could wipe us all out. But once we spread out into space and establish independent colonies, our future should be safe.” We like it our not, the humans of the future will live in the space, and life outside earth might influence dramatically the way we look. (picture colony in mars) • Moving away from the sun, our eyes will need to adapt to ambient with less amount of light. They will considerably increase, giving us a quite exotic appearance (show picture). • The extended exposure to cosmic rays and space radiation might induce mutations never seen before.
At the international space station help find vacancies and research to cure some diseases. Astronauts aren 't just up their to study space but they conduct research on diseases and other bacteria to see how space affects them dn how and what they can do to. Space satellites like voyager 1 and 2 have done a huge amount of research on our galaxy and flew close enough to titan one of saturn 's moon humans now know that the surface is like on the water moon. It 's not just people conducting research but satellites do more research on our own planet and solar system and figure out weather patterns and asteroids distance and what the surface of Jupiter is like and other planets and because of starlights we know how hot the sun is and what 's its made of. Satellites help everyone down here on earth it gets internet, radio stations and all and any other type of communication expect for landline phones.
subtilis is found mainly in plant and soil rich environments, it seems interesting that our B. subtilis sample was collected from the air in the microbiology laboratory. B. subtilis does produce spores, however in order for them to be present in the surrounding air and environment, you have to be in an environment that contains a substantial amount of plants in which the laboratory is not. However, before the unknown was collected, we were preparing our Winogradsky columns. The Winogradsky columns contained mud that was collected from an area of moistened soil on campus. So there is a possibility that some B. subtilis spores were released into the air during the preparation of the column.
The mission meant to send administrator Jim Lovell and lunar module pilot Fred Haise to the lunar surface, while charge module pilot Jack Swigert stayed in circle. In any case, on April 13, the mission endured a devastating blast that would about fate the spaceflight and its group. Apollo 13's team prepared for making the primary arrival in the Fra Mauro lunar good countries, which seem brighter than the level fields, where the prior two Apollo missions landed.In any case, Apollo 13 conveyed an oxygen tank with a pained history. The tank had been harmed in testing, yet the rocket manufacturers didn't know about an issue. The tube shaped administration module had six pie-cut divisions.
The article shows our use of science to make nitrogen. We later go on to read of how explosives are changed into a chemical fertilizer and sprayed onto crops. Pollan then introduces us to a chemists named Fritz Harber who did good and bad things through the use of science. By the end of the article, Pollan tells us it is better to depend on Mother Nature (Who can still produce nitrogen naturally, though slower) than it is to rely on science. The Article “On Buying Local” has the strongest rhetoric due to the fact that it has more to do with more current events.
Catherine A. Conley is NASA’s planetary-protection officer. Her job is to protect other planets from Earth while we are exploring them. This is position helps to enforce an international agreement made in the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, which says that nations must take care to avoid contaminating the planets they explore. The planet that NASA is concerned mostly is Mars. This is due to the fact that the Mars rovers contain microbes from Earth, which may potentially be harmful to whatever life may be on Mars.
