The Pros And Cons Of Mars One

Good Essays
Unbelievable! In the year of 2022, humans will be living on the red planet, Mars. Mars One is a program whose goal is to set up a permanent human colony on Mars. Although, this is an exciting idea, it is not practical and is likely to fail; for instance, Mars One doesn’t have the right technology, not enough money, and their plan is too generalized and nonspecific. Mars One doesn’t have the right technology to make their plan work. For example, Mars One wants to send a pressurized rover to Mars, with the humans that will soon be colonizing there. However, Mars One doesn’t have big enough rockets, to send that rover to Mars. To build bigger rockets, Mars One will need a lot more technology. Although, Mars One may find the technology needed to build a bigger rocket, they will need more; to build another one for the people sent to Mars after the first group. This also proves that Mars One will need a better landing method because they want to land a huge rover onto the red planet, but they have not yet achieved that with one of the (huge) size they have in mind. Not only does Mars One need more technology to build bigger rockets and get a better landing method, it takes a lot of money; and Mars One already doesn’t have enough money. Mars One is not doing too well in this situation. …show more content…
Unfortunately, Mars One’s plan is to keep their budget down, by making the trip to Mars one way. Personally, I think that this is an awful idea. Humans will never have the same life ever again. They will never get to see their families, homes, nature ever again. Furthermore, these humans will never get to eat the wonderful foods we have here on Earth for a long time, like pizza. These humans will not be able to cook foods until a greenhouse is made. In the meantime, while humans are colonizing on Mars, they will also be eating packaged astronaut

    In addition, it will take so much time and effort for humans to colonize mars and make it habitable. Since the way itself takes couple of years to just arrive, at this time people could change their minds about living on the red planet. In conclusion, the mars mission is still unclear whether it is going to succeed or not. Mostly, the idea of colonizing mars is hard to achieve if there are still many problems that need to be fixed. If these scientists have discovered ways of how solving the Earth problems, the world would be a better place to live in.…

    Plus, where’s the money even going? If we are paying to go to a different planet, what would the money be used for? To create all the spaceships, gear, and space suits is just way too much money, and using money from taxes doesn’t make the situation any better. Money doesn’t grow off trees, so where are we supposed to get all of it, anyway? Space travel not only will cost a lot of money, but some people struggle to earn money, so it would be incredibly unfair to take the money off of people’s taxes.…

    Despite the dream of space exploration being a peaceful one, the U.S. space program only came about as a result of the cold war. The program improved the military capabilities of the nation, and also demonstrated its power. After the space race ended, the U.S. space program started to lose its funding. Space exploration is expensive, and with the arms race over, some people do not believe that space exploration is worth the money. Is space exploration something worth continuing, and are there ways to continue exploring without government funding?…

    The Space Debate Whether or not America should be funding space exploration, namely the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), does not really get debated much. However, when this subject is brought into question people tend to take a strict stance on one side or the other. It is easy to dismiss the entire objective of putting man in space as a waste of time and resources, but that could not be further from the truth. Space exploration stimulates technological innovation and provides a clear path for economic growth. Defunding NASA would be counter productive and only slow America's overall long-term economic progress; if anything NASA's budget should be increased rather than decreased.…

    We should go to Mars “The day we stop exploring is the day we commit ourselves to live in a stagnant world devoid of curiosity, empty of dreams.” — Neil deGrasse Tyson. The world has gotten too comfortable living in its bubble of safety. It’s time the world became curious and took the chance of exploring the unknown. Years and Years of debate after landing on the moon has raised this question: Should there be a manned spaceflight to Mars? Despite the risks, the benefits for humans of a manned mission to Mars allows, offers, and ensures the new birth of exploration for the world.…
