Forming a society on an inhospitable, deserted, and entirely hostile planet was far from being an easy goal. Everyone presented their plan to colonize Mars, but no one had a perfect plan. There was always a spot where a difference was notable, such as the decision of bringing frozen human embryos. The Martian, a movie that was about surviving the Red Planet, also showed notable unique features in the habitat. However, by analyzing the differences of these colonies, combining ideas could have lead to a very efficient colony. Thus, Mars could have been the start of human expansion throughout the solar system.
For many years people have wondered what could happen if humans lived on another planet. In recent years the technology to achieve this has been getting closer and closer. It has been predicted that humans could be on Mars by the year 2030 (Knapton NP). But should people even bother attempting to go to another planet? What would be gained by this? Is there a good reason to go? Although some may question the justification of going to Mars, humans should colonize Mars for the benefit of all people.
Humanity shouldn’t pursue exploration of Mars because we have more pressing issues like conflicts over the world (WW3). Money can be spent on other programs and or research that can be useful today instead of exploring Mars. Also, if they did explore Mars the exploration could bring back a deadly disease that no one can cure.
Throughout the extensive history of the earth, the human race has been striving to achieve great accomplishments and leave a beneficial impact on the world. In order to do this, the human race has made technological advancements and broadened their knowledge about the universe, which is precisely what colonizing and settling humans on Mars will accomplish. Even though the journey to Mars will be unsafe and unaffordable, it is advantageous because Mars is the most scientifically similar planet to Earth, it will provide a difficult challenge that will expand our species’ knowledge, and it will ensure the survival of the human race. Overall, colonizing Mars will be a significant accomplishment in the earth’s history and will identify a period
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
costs six billion dollars just to send a couple of people to Mars. The people in which are organizing this expedition say it can be done by 2027. Colonizing Mars is a terrible idea, since people are risking their lives, there is not a natural source of water on Mars, and it costs a tremendously outrageous price to reach Mars.
The last reason why you shouldn’t go on this trip to Mars is because finding ways to live there would be difficult. First of all, work will have to be done in order to find water. When water is needed, you would have to break up the soil. Being able to expand will also be limited due to the amount of water and oxygen that is on Mars. Lastly, the environment is very unforgiving. If a small mistake is made in the atmosphere, you could easily become injured or possibly die. The Mars One website says, “Mars is an unforgiving environment where a small mistake or accident can result in large failure, injury, and
The article that I read for Unit 5 written assignment is called “For life, not for an afterlife; Colonizing Mars” published in the magazine “The Economist”, the author’s name is not mentioned. The article talks about how the planet Mars is filled with stories about death and destruction. The article cites the titles of various authors in which they state that Martians destroy humankind, or humans living among alien ghosts.
The prospect of exploring Mars and starting a new human colony there is an exciting one. Many people are eager to learn more about that possibility, and many people have ideas of what life would be like and how society would be run. An important part of running a successful colony is having a strong government to oversee the colony. If I were a part of an advisory committee for a colony on Mars, I would want my fellow advisors specific traits and characteristics that would help to advance our colony and allow it to thrive.The four other advisors to influence the society would be adaptable, open minded, and humble.
Physical characteristics of the Mars is half the diameter of the Earth, less dense than Earth. Mars' rotational period is similar to the Earth rotation. Another interesting facts about Mars is that, it has two Moons which are Deimos and Phobos. Deimos and Phobos are small and irregular shape. Also, Mars have largest volcano and second highest known mountain and largest canyon in the Solar System. Largest volcano and highest mountain is Olympus Mons, it has a height of 25 km and it is three times as tall as Mount Everest. Largest canyon is Valles Marineris is more than 4000 km long , 200 km wide, and up to 7 km deep. It is located along the equator of the Mars. Second interesting facts about the Mars except the similarities to the Earth, is the findings on the
A number of things have been attributed to the red planet in contemporary times, much of it is research based, some cartoon based. One’s childhood could have been filled with various science fiction novels about humanity colonizing the red planet or watching Bugs Bunny outsmart the Martian and his dog.
After the Earth, Mars is the most habitable planet in our solar system. Its soil contains water and when compared to our neighbor planets, Mars isn’t too cold or too hot. There is enough sunlight to use solar panels and its gravity is 38% that of our Earth’s, which is believed by many to be sufficient for the human body to adapt to in a healthy fashion. It has an atmosphere, albeit a thin one that offers protection from cosmic and sun’s radiation. Another important point is also the day and night rhythm, which is very similar, that of Earth: a Mars day is 24hours, 39 minutes and 35 seconds. According to the data gasses like carbon dioxide and nitrogen are found in the atmosphere of Mars which can be used to grow plants through hydroponics.
