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
Without knowing the expected costs, it is difficult to know whether the investment in the Mars missions is attainable. In addition, it would be important to understand whether the government agencies responsible for space technology, such as NASA, believe that a manned Mars mission by 2020 is possible. It may be understood within the space technology world that not matter what the investment is, not amount of money will be able to produce a manned mission to
This book was published in 2011, which is part of an era where NASA, and other space exploration organizations, were trying to develop practical ways for humans to travel to Mars (still are). The variety of references to real modern technology in this book display how essential the time period was to the writing of this book. There would be a huge amount of guessing when it comes to the technology needed to live on mars if this
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.
Our Earth being both a place of sustenance and shelter is the only place that humans can survive as of right now. Although the discovery of survival might be possible in other planets in the future, the planet of our home is decomposing and transforming into a planet that no organism can survive. The natural order of things in an ecosystem is solely dependent on whether we create a disturbance that can penetrate earth’s shields. In “The World’s Hot Spot” by Thomas L. Friedman, an opinion columnist for the New York Times, suggests that we take a look at nature before it gets extreme and save our personal issues for later. In the article, the use of tone, diction, evidence, and vivid imagery were integrated to clearly portray the current situation of what mother nature is causing as consequences of the problems we create and our least concern in finding a solution.
In Mars the human behaviors are changed, showing a dark side of human imperfect behaviors. The Martian Chronicles shows the human lead their own destruction on Earth, people who stays on Mars get chance to start over, but due to their false illusions they refuse accept reality. The Martian Chronicles is a science fiction short story, about how people tried to explore Mars, failed at first, but ended up colonize Mars. After colonizing Mars there a war on Earth, the war on Earth had massive destruction caused by people. Bradbury’s constantly uses examples about how humanity imperfect behaviors keep them from accepting reality, insteading accepting their own imagination.
The heliocentric theory is the idea that the sun is the center of the universe rather than the earth. Exploiting, mathematics Copernicus was able to create a radically new, post-Ptolemaic system, which illustrated all the celestial objects revolving around the sun. Copernicus also stated that the moon revolved around the earth. Furthermore, this demoted the moon from a planet to a satellite. However, people of his time thought the heliocentric theory was incorrect and strange.
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.
One of the greatest accomplishments of the Apollo missions was the integrated circuit, which led to the microchip used today. Created to minimize the amount of mass launched into space, integrated circuits are used in almost all technology today (Gaudin). While there are a few monuments to commemorate the Apollo 11 mission or Neil Armstrong, none of them incorporate all of the important effects mentioned above, as this monument would. Not only would this monument educate the public on what the Moon landing meant for the United States, it would allow them to realize how much of today’s technology they gained from the space program, a realization much needed today when the government wants to end NASA’s
