Jordan Bates in his article "In Order to Ensure Our Survival, We Must Become a Multi-Planetary Species" published by Futurism states: "A number of experts agree that humanity needs to become a multi-planetary species within the next 100 years to ensure its survival into the future. "(Bates) Experts on space believe that if we are living on more than one planet, and an asteroid hits earth, that the human species will not be wiped out because others would be on Mars. Others believe that we may run out of natural resources on Earth and that Mars could save us. Although some people believe this, it is not true.
Even though colonizing Mars is bad idea others think it is a good idea. Going to Mars would expand our knowledge on space. “I think humans will reach Mars, and I would like to see it happen in my lifetime” says Buzz Aldrin. Scientists plan to recycle the water on Mars
The argument claims that the money invested in the "Space Race" in the 1960's was well worth the high cost due to the many technological advances and therefore, the government should commit to a Mars Landing by 2020. Stated in this way, the argument fails to mention several key factors on which it could be evaluated. The conclusion relies on assumption, for which there is no clear evidence. Therefore the argument is weak, unconvincing and has several flaws.
“Is this for real?” asked Alison Rigby, a 33-year-old prospective candidate of the interplanetary mission to colonize Mars, known as the Mars One mission. What can anyone possibly reply other than this if one is acquainted with such a controversial project? It is indeed thrilling, or perhaps alarming, that there are genuine intentions and even concrete plans to send people to the red planet. The good old curiosity might have prompted mankind, but with the level of technology, the amount of funding, and the degree of knowledge and experience these Earthlings, who are operating the Mars One mission, currently possess about Mars, the Mars One space rocket for the manned space voyage in 2026 might just become an enormous metallic flying tomb carrying
Space exploration has long been a debated topic. From the days where there was controversy between whether the universe revolved around the Earth, because god made humans special, to whether Copernicus’s idea that the Earth and the other planets of the solar system revolve around the sun was true. Then there was the space race where there was a dilemma based on what was ethical to be produced and sent to space (such as weaponry during the cold war). The more contemporary problem involves the exploration of space and the danger that space debris poses. We must accept however that space is our back-up plan if we were to exploit the Earth to such an extent that we could no longer survive here.
(p. 1). To explain this quote, Fiorello basically proves Bramante wrong, when Bramante is talking of how there is no earthly way that he is able to go to space, and then he talks of how he has saved up enough money already, and it’s guaranteed that one of his family is going to Mars. “Maria looked at her husband. “What have you done?” she said.
For many years, it has been believed and scientifically proven that only the planet Earth can sustain life. And without it, we’ll no longer have a place to call home. However, with the Earth’s drastic condition - climate change, greenhouse gases, depletion of the ozone layer, and etc.- the astronomers have been searching for a planet that can save us from the ultimate fate of the Earth- and to also prove that we are not alone. Thus, after long years of research, we have found Kepler-452b. Here is a gist of what has been discovered about Kepler-452b:
Injured and left for dead, alone on the planet Mars, can Mark Watney survive for more than one year until help arrives? Mark is the main character, and he is on Mars throughout all the book. The problem is that he doesn’t have enough food to live on Mars until NASA can rescue him. Trouble started when he was out exploring with his crew during a dust storm when a piece of equipment broke and hit him. Lewis [the commander] and the crew escaped the dust storm, assuming Mark had died.
. . . Man had become an excessive amount of man and not enough animal on Mars too. and also the men of Mars realised that in order to survive they might got to forgo asking that one question any longer: Why live? Life was its own answer. Life was the propagation of a lot of life and also the living of as good a life as doable. . . .
I also started to think about the Drake equation, which I learned about in high school. The Drake equation looks at different things like the formation of stars and the probability of other life-sustaining planets, which in turn gives us a number of civilizations in the Milky Way Galaxy that we can detect electromagnetic emissions from (The Drake Equation). While I thought quite a bit about extraterrestrial life, I also thought about the fact we are stuck on Earth. The first thing that immediately comes to mind with that is how we are going to produce enough food. In the paper we discussed during class on Thursday, the data showed that we are using a significant amount of our natural resources in the production of beef cattle, and my thoughts on this are that we should transition to meats that don’t use as many resources.
As it states in source B, we are fifty years into the space age, and yet space travel is just as expensive as it has always been. A lot of people anticipated that by now, scientists would have considered some kind of way to mend that complication. Again, it states in source B that one of the leading missions of NASA should have been to cut the cost of space travel. For example, they should not have spent half a billion on each space shuttle mission, but diverted some funds to make research and development their primary focus. Also, this illustrates the reality that NASA is not even utilizing the money they get wisely or efficiently, and that is one of the main causes science is not advancing: NASA not using their money sensibly.
Rover landings in 1997 and 2004 gave us the first up close look at Mars’ surface and is the basis for all the skepticism we have about the possibility of life on the Red Planet (NASA.com). Mars’ surface is not exactly the nicest place to live. With low temperatures reaching -143 degrees Celsius at the poles, it can be rough keeping warm; however, the highs can reach up
1.) The Quartering Act of 1774. 2.) The Quartering Act of 1774 was created and passed by parliament along with the other Intolerable Acts as a response to the Boston Tea Party. Great Britain was trying to punish the American Colonies and show that they had power.
“Paul Revere was a successful silversmith” stated the Story “Paul Revere and the American Revolution” by Ethel Ames also that same poem has put how he rode away from the British to warn the Americans that the British were coming. On the other hand, The poem “Paul Revere's ride” by Henry Longfellow was about how he warned the Americans about the British with a lantern by himself. A different poem called “How accurate was Longfellow's poem” by Franklin Johnson. states how Henry Longfellow the person who wrote “Paul Revere's ride” was not accurate. Now, Longfellow had one person, Paul Revere, when there were actually three people. Samuel Prescott and William Dawes were the two other people that were there to help him with his ride.
