In conclusion, colonizing Mars is a terrible idea There is no known natural source of water, Once you get there you cannot come back , and If you get sick, the astronauts
However, there are several arguments against humans colonizing Mars. One of these is that it would be remarkably expensive. A single spacesuit costs about two million dollars, and the fuel required in the ships is millions more (Walker NP). The entire trip would amount to one hundred billion dollars. The cost of the equipment needed on Mars itself would have to be added in as well. Colonists would have to establish a permanent base with a source of water, food, and air, or be able to consistently resupply from Earth. This would cost billions more and require a massive amount of resources. The price of going to and staying on Mars would definitely be quite high.
Why should humans colonize Mars? Humans should colonize Mars for their own well being. If humans want their future offsprings to be alive and well throughout the years then they need to find out how to colonize Mars and they need
Every two months, a shuttle will arrive with drinking water for people. The main source of water on Mars is recycling. Leftover dishwater, the water you spit out when you brush your teeth- it all gets filtered and put back into the system. Although, 3.8 billion years ago, Mars may have had a denser atmosphere and higher surface temperatures, allowing a vast amount of liquid water on the surface. This amount of water may have included a large ocean that may have covered one-third of the planet. Due to the fact that the climate on Mars is cold and waterless, it is not a good idea to colonize
The Mars One project, a mission that will attempt to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars, has become immensely popular since its announcement in December of 2013. With the mission’s growing popularity, the CEO of the project, Bas Lansdrop, has established that within twelve years, the first humans will land on the surface of the barren planet and begin colonization (“Mars One: Roadmap”.) Mars One presents our species with the capability to discover new life forms, valuable resources, and it pushes the limits of our technological potential. It is not perplexing to see why countless individuals have signed up to be a part of this historic mission, and ultimately “the next giant leap for mankind.” (Lansdrop.) Although this mission
“There’s as much chance of repealing the Eighteenth Amendment as there is for a hummingbird to fly to the planet Mars with the Washington Monument tied to it’s tail” said Morris Sheppard. In my opinion we don’t need a man mission to Mars. A man mission to Mars is way too dangerous. First, it is way too cold on Mars for any living thing.
Humans Should Not Colonize Mars In a situation where humans colonize Mars, if a tragedy happens, the citizens on Mars are doomed. Colonizing Mars is not beneficial to Earth. The mission would cost billions of dollars to accomplish.
The Martian starts off with Mark Watney, a Botanist and Mechanical Engineer, being stranded on Mars after his flight crew of the Ares 3 thought he had died from shrapnel flying through the air and impaling him. So starts Watney 687 days of survival on Mars, starting with first how to survive with no food. To survive Watney starts growing potatoes in the crew’s Martian habitat (HAB) and burning hydrazine to make water. After NASA starts looking at the satellite images of the landing site start showing evidence of a living
Colonizing Mars is not a good idea, once the crew gets to Mars they might die from, deadly ultraviolet radiation, the freezing weather, and toxic water on Mars, the crew that’s going to Mars will likely die in the cramped spaceship. In conclusion, colonizing Mars is not a very good idea just for all the flaws and risks it has for going to Mars. There are many things wrong with the idea for going to
Mars is a planet that has the capability of sustaining life. Should we or should we not colonize this red planet? My group believes that the UN should colonize this planet, because it will bring many benefits. First of all, it would provide us with many resources that we may not have in our planet. Humans need to find out a way to colonize a new planet because our planet isn’t gonna live forever At some point in the future we will run out of room on earth or use up all the resources. Our planet can’t support all the living people in this planet forever. We need to figure out what our next step in humanity is. We believe that we should start considering colonizing other planets because of the resources, growth and survival.
The colonization of Mars and other planets has ethical concerns. In this paper, I will discuss the important issues that make us question whether it is moral to colonize other planets or not. In the last thousands of years, human kind has progressed a lot. Our technological advancements have made life easier, but have also come with high risk. Our progress has made biological, nuclear and chemical weapons easier to acquire, and new risks such as artificial intelligence are now arising. The consequences of climate change and natural catastrophes look very curtain for the future. With risks like these, there is no way humankind could survive on earth forever. Due to these risks, I will argue
As I've said before, no one has put a settlement on earth. People are going to be a little unsettled about going to a new planet. We need a person who is going to assure these people to going to Mars. There are going to be mendacious people who will try to make the idea of going to Mars a horrendous idea. However, with a person with great persuasive skills who can get a lot of people on side, we will have no problem having people to populate this settlement of Mars. People will always reject a new idea at first, but when given a good a enough reason to believe, that idea will be
Dr. Robert Zubrin co-authors this book, which is his updated plan for settling Mars. His intentions to not bring much to Mars, but instead utilize its resources by terraforming and producing fuel are outlined within this piece. Zubrin is a reliable source on the topic, due to his Ph.D. in nuclear engineering and his previous job as an engineer for Lockheed Martin Astronautics. He is also considered a pioneer in the realm of Mars, as the creator of the Mars Society. The book is therefore a reliable, though somewhat biased, source for information surrounding Mars and its colonization.
If I were asked whether or not I wanted to be an early colonist on Mars, I would accept. Not because the thought of living on a newly inhabitable planet is cool, but because of the creatures that may already claim Mars as their own. Mars would be an interesting place to live, its dirt red and sky pink.
Mars is a really good place to colonize because it is really cold on Mars which, means that the inside is frozen and if the colonizers can melt that they would have endless water. NASA is not going to send colonizers every day. They have to send people at the right time because the sun is blocking Mars and if they send them at the wrong time they will go right into the sun. Earth is a overpopulated place so if we go to Mars and its fine to live there our earth would not be overpopulated anymore. Also NASA is not going to force you to go to Mars you can go to Mars if you are experienced and you want to
