It may seem like the dream of science-fiction writers that we will one day live in other planets, but the reality is closer than most people think. As we saw in the previous page, NASA is taking very serious steps in learning about Mars and its potential as a second home for human beings.
Mars is a prime candidate for colonization. The land area of Mars is very similar to the Earth’s; even though Mars is about half the size of Earth (Mars has mostly a dry surface, whereas we have plenty of ocean water on our surface). Mars’ gravity is 2.7 weaker than in our planet, which makes it reasonable for adaptation and for all the hard work that would be required for colonization.
Before humans can begin to live in Mars, scientists will need to develop technology for terraforming, which is the artificial modification of a planet’s atmosphere. This would be essential since Mar’s atmosphere is currently too thin and thus too cold, making it impossible to have water in liquid form.
Mars temperature is promising in some regards. The average high temperatures in Mars reach 30 ° C (86 ° F), which makes it very pleasant for a human being. The down side is that the low average temperatures reach -140° C (-284° F), a problem that can be fixed with terraforming over decades, but only with expensive heating in the beginning.
The challenges of colonizing a planet are enormous but that hasn’t stopped many visionaries, engineers and scientists to begin exploring the possibility. Considering that there have been several mass extinction events on Earth, it does not sound like a bad idea to have a Planet B at our disposal.
Space exploration will surely take us to unimaginable places this 2021 and beyond. Are you ready for it?
