    Do Not Colonize Mars Did you know that if the dust storms on Mars are large enough, they could knock out the sun for days? That is one of the inconveniences of inhabiting Mars. There are many people who think we should colonize Mars, and some people disagree. I believe that we should not colonize Mars. First, the weather on Mars is intense. The weather is extremely frigid. The article “What Would It Take to Live Here” states, “ The average temperature is -81 degrees Fahrenheit.” (p. 19)…

    that Mars was habitable and we wanted to go and live on Mars? Just being in space is dangerous. All these movies about space is actually giving us a warning about what could happen. The Apollo Movies are actual events that happened in astronautics in the early age of space flight and that was just going to the moon. Here are some reasons on why we shouldn't be going to Mars.

    For more than fifteen years, the search for sign of water on Mars has finally been found conclusive. Findings from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provided the definite evidence that water flows periodically throughout Mars. Using an imaging spectrometer on the MRO, researchers saw hydrated minerals that are seen as streaks on slopes. These streaks fade in cooler seasons and seem to flow down, as well as darken during the warmer seasons. These flows are called recurring slop linea (RSL)…

    Since Mars is the only terrestrial planet whose surface can be directly observed in detail from the Earth with help from a telescope, it has been studied by Earth-based instruments since as early as the seventeenth century. However it is just since the exploration of Mars started in the mid-1960s that close-range observation has been conceivable. Flyby and orbital shuttles have provided information from above, while direct estimations of atmospheric conditions have been given by various…

    existence of potentially life supporting water that flows across the antient surface of Mars, even today! According to John Grunsfeld, the associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA, "the existence of liquid water, even if it is super salty briny water, gives the possibility that if there's life on Mars, that we have a way to describe how it might survive." Using images taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, NASA researchers confirmed that the water streaks found…

    Colonizing Venus Instead of Mars Throughout the years, the space community has pushed the boundaries of what we, as humans, can and cannot do. With infinite possibilities within our continually expanding universe, it was only about time that space colonization would jump out of sci-fi novels and into our reality. As overpopulation and the increasing risk that a disaster, natural or man-made, may destroy the earth weighs heavy on the shoulder's of the human race, it is also time to take space…

In the SEP-Chem architecture, the system destination and the propellant return or the stages are pre-deployed proceedings to the troop leaving by the spacecraft of the cargo and it is a solar electric. While in the Hybrid approach, the systems of the destinations are also installed before the troop leave via the SEP, but the…

    The connection between my article Mars, the red planet and The Martian by Andy Weir is that Mark Watney uses Mars’s two moons Phobos and Deimos to help him travel to the Pathfinder so he can communicate with NASA for help.When he travels at night he can’t see any of the landmarks like the craters to help him know the direction he is going so he uses Phobos and Deimos to help him travel. “Mars doesn’t have a magnetic field.So I navigate by Phobos. It whips around Mars so fast it actually rises…

    Sending a manned space mission to Mars sounds pretty cool, right, and we all have questions like "Is there life on Mars?" I personally think we should give Mars a visit because think about the secrets we could uncover that could be astonishing and so helpful. We could go to see if we can find information about earth or even have success living there would possibly give us time to explore longer and collect more. Imagine living up there in a sustained area waiting for whatever comes next. Now…

    Mars is said to be completely desolate. No life except for maybe bacteria. There’s no water on mars. There is an atmosphere but it’s very thin, and the soil isn't farm able whatsoever. How would one, even live on a planet like this? The red planet is very far away. The trip alone to get to mars, at the right time of the year, takes at least nine months. Astronauts would have to be stuck in a large vehicle, like, space. That only one of the issues. These astronauts that are in a tiny spacecraft…
