Mars mission? Bad idea

Mars mission is a bad idea because your health and body would be in danger, you would be away many months, and your life would be on the line of death.

Your body and health would be a problem on Mars. First, you have to keep your muscles strong or they will deteriorate. For example, you would have to take a jog on the treadmill everyday. Since Mars has such low gravity you will have to find a way to keep your muscles strong. Second, time away from Earth’s gravity harms the human body. For example, bones and muscles get weaker, the body produces less blood, and heart muscles will deteriorate. Since the Earth has more gravity than Mars, your body would not be able to survive. Third, Mars travelers could face severe sleep

To start, temperature is a big problem in Mars. For example, windy and ridiculously freezing… as always (the average temperature is -61 degrees Fahrenheit). Since the average temperature is way below freezing you would be cold all the time, so you would have to pack warm clothes. No shorts. Next, landing is nearly impossible. For example, Mars’ atmospheric pressure is less than 1 percent of Earth’s, making it difficult to slow a spaceship hurtling toward the surface at an estimated speed of 13,000 miles per hour. Unmanned rovers have cushioned their descents with heat shields, parachutes, and rockets, but current technology is insufficient for landing a much larger manned spacecraft. Since the spaceship would be going so fast there is a big chance everyone could die. Finally, oxygen, water, food, and movement.. All questions that are concerns. For example, and lest we forget about the micrometeorites that threaten to puncture the spacecraft or spacesuit of an astronaut. Since the micrometeorites could puncture your suit, again you could die. In conclusion, unless you want your life on the line of death Mars is a bad idea.

In conclusion, Mars overall is not a good idea. With not only your life in danger but as well as your body in danger and multiple months away from family and

    For example, the time to reach mars is almost 296 more days more than the time to reach the moon. Since we are not accustomed to this time, people can die of several things. Last, the spaceship speeding at mars will not have time to stop, with the technology we have now. For example, Mars atmospheric pressure is less than 1 percent of Earth’s, making it nearly impossible for the spaceship to slow at an estimated 13,000 mph. Since the speed is too fast, and not enough slowing, everyone in the spaceship will die.…

    Although this can be reduced selecting volunteers as healthy as possible, it is still a large amount of very expensive equipment. For example an MRI scanner usually costs around one million pounds. This equipment, as mentioned earlier, must be very advanced and a lot of research will be required to develop it. It will also cost millions of pounds to transport this equipment to the colony in Mars and to transport consumables such as food to Mars. Bottled oxygen will be required to sustain the astronauts and as a result will be used up very quickly.…

    Others believe that it is a bad idea. For example; going to mars is dangerous and not easy where one trip requires 6 to 7 months in space with lack pf gravity which may cause back pain and 2% bone loss each month (2). Thus people are not prepared to go to Mars. According to Alexandar Kumar, Mars is inhabitable for the following reasons such as the temperature, gravity and dust storms which can be harmful due to Mars’s thin atmosphere (3). Despite all the positive sides, the consequences are more effectible and harmful to humans.…

    The long term effects of space junk can do much more damage than most anticipate. Like a garbage bag or the world population cap, Earth’s orbit has limits on how much it can hold. Once something exceeds its holding capacity, it bursts. Earth’s orbit would not burst, as it is made because of Earth’s gravitational pull, but it could cause objects to crash into one another and cause them to descend towards Earth at high velocities. This could cause catastrophic damage to our planet.…

    The main disadvantage is that it is not constant, as the speed of wind changes, and the energy currently cannot be stored. (Maehlum) Therefore, it must be used along with other sources of energy. (Layton) Land that is suited for wind energy may also be expensive. (Darvill) To use it, a minimum wind speed of 9 miles per hour is needed for small turbines, and 13 miles per hour for large turbines. (Layton) Turbine blades can also harm flying creatures, and it is estimated that they kill 10,000 to 440,000 flying creatures per year.…

    Space Junk Essay

    The Kessler syndrome predicts that space junk collisions will become more frequent hence creating a series of effects that will eventually make the earth’s orbit crowded with orbital debris (Hall 11). A dense orbit full of pollutant remains will make it impossible for space exploration and the use of satellites becomes unfeasible. As a result, common space missions for instance weather tracking and communications services like Global Positioning System (GPS) will be crippled. As a result of the rising concern with regard to this nature of pollution, the United States government, under the Environmental Protection Agency, has recently classified space junk as a national security threat and a key environmental issue. Can we solve this juggernaut of space junk?…

    At 1982 United states federal law proposed idea that using the space shuttle as a garbage disposal vehicle, but shuttle flights not became enough or frequent enough and another problem is very expensive to carry to the wide space (Claiborne, 2004). That if this idea was succeed and did not have other consequences, it would have a huge spread of nuclear energy because the space is very wide and can sand space shuttle with nuclear waste without problems. Moreover, Some of nuclear plants try to do the waste is well sealed inside huge drums of steel or underground burial as mentioned previously, sometimes accidents are occurring because of human mistakes such as leaking hazardous materials that would affect the plants and animals life. In Chernobyl explosion, there are obvious adverse effects on red forest that close to the explosion site and animals that there were. Due to exposure to radiation, it…

    In the 1950’s NASA encountered a problem with their spacecrafts. The lack of an atmosphere in space causes substantial changes in temperatures, making it impossible for astronauts to survive. To prevent these extreme changes in temperature they covered the spacecraft in a shiny aluminized insulation. Today this reflective insulation has a variety of uses including: home and car insulation, emergency blankets and packaging. Another popular spinoff from NASA is memory foam originally designed for enhanced seat cushions.…
