Through this process, we have almost concluded that advocating the search for extraterrestrial life as our primary goal in space has its benefits. Now that we understand how the search for... ... middle of paper ... ...ugh our transfer of ideas with that species we might be able to form a formidable defense in the case of an attack. Other than that, many other cases against the search for extraterrestrial life being the primary spatial task have been disproved. Through efforts from organizations like SETI we will advance the search for extraterrestrial life forms. From their researches we will have made a definite call on how and where to continue contacting in the universe, this is why searching for life in outer space should be the primary goal in space exploration.
At our current rate, our species may not be able to survive for much longer. This is where space exploration comes in. With the recent discovery of water on mars, and the finding of Kepler-78b, it is possible that mankind can prolong our existence. The possibility of interstellar travel seems to be an option or even a necessity if we wish to continue living. Populating another planet could help solve the population crisis and climate change simultaneously.
Where should the US focus its space efforts? Near earth exploration (manned or robotic), interplanetary (manned or robotic), or somewhere else. What challenges will be faced? The center of interest for any scientific culture, is to understand, expand, and pursue exploration. Explorations, allows us to define scientific achievements and refocus previous trace goals.US, as any country is incline to pursue near earth and deep space exploration.
The attitude determination and control system determines the attitude with respect to an inertial reference frame then control the attitude with thrusters and magnetic torques. The power system generates, stores, regulates, controls and distributes electrical power to other spacecraft subsystems with assistance of the power conditioning and control system. Finally, the computer system processes signals, helps computerization of attitude control , and controls speed. For all these reasons, control systems are very important. Deep space exploration vehicles can be developed in future by help of technology and they can help mankind's reach in interstellar space.
To successfully colonize Mars you need to know; how to get there, who would go, and how to survive once you’re there. A lot of people think since Mars is much farther than the Moon that is would take a bigger spaceship to get there but this is not true. Researchers say that Mars can be reached with a small spaceship, like the one that took astronauts to the Moon, which would be launched directly to Mars (Zubrin). “According to Mars One’s mission plan, it will begin sending up unmanned craft by 2018, to establish a base and communications center, followed in 2022 by unmanned craft with settler supplies and also robots to begin assembling water and oxygen processing equipment” (Jordan). This process will then be repeated once the first crew reaches the Red Planet in 2025 (Jordan).
Additionally, an initial base permits technology development that will aid future surface bases in becoming more self-supporting and self-sufficient. To ensure the safety of the pioneers of Mars, various hardware, part of the mission elements, that supports survival all while allowing the astronauts to obtain the objectives of the mission needs to be created and incorporated into the base. The new hardware will establish a surface base for the crew to manage. Examples of the hardware include life support systems, thermal control systems, and power supplies. Surface base design relies chiefly on the specific mission and the environment of Mars.
The resources and information that we can learn from being in space, and from mining and researching distant planets could very well make our planet’s environment and human life better. There are many benefits that could come from deep space exploration. To better understand our planet we need to understand everything that affects it, like the sun for instance. “SOHO, launched a little more than four years ago, is gradually responding to all the questions it was supposed to answer and clearly deals with the way our star works and how its light and its magnetic ﬁeld are generated, how and why it becomes magnetically active, with a rough periodicity of 11 years, why and how its corona is so hot and how predictable are the effects of solar eruptions and CMEs and of the Solar Wind” (Bonnet, 2001) The sun is very crucial to life on Earth. Performing this research gives a better understanding about how everything on the planet is affected and could give us insight on how to make things better.
This program is essential for increasing knowledge of outer space, protecting planet Earth, and creating new technologies even used by the average citizen. NASA deserves to continue to be funded, and there are many reasons why. For example, NASA is responsible for collecting important data from the universe and building new technologies to discover even more. Satellites, probes, rovers, and astronauts travel to distant celestial bodies to collect information on how these masses work and to discover if they can use any resources from these places to benefit people on Earth. For instance, Curiosity, the Mars rover, has found evidence that life could have once lived on Mars (Daines).
Currently our world is very advanced in technology and by using it we can take space exploration to a whole new level, in which we don’t have to worry about the disadvantages of living in space. Robots play a huge role in space, due to the fact that they can be created with several different utilities. Space exploration has always been fascinating, even though it can be a challenge to adapt to life in space, humans will learn to overcome those difficulties by using all possible methods. Space exploration can be fairly exciting and adventurous, though that is until you look at all of the disadvantages. Due to the absence of gravity in space (microgravity) learning to live there can be a challenge.
Mars is like Earth in many ways, but it is also different. Mars has water and ice which is why scientists believe plants can eventually be grown on Mars (space.com). Once the plants are grown, oxygen can be formed and strengthen the atmosphere (space.com). When the atmosphere is thickened then the planet will be livable by humans (space.com). Scientists’ ultimate goal is to have human life on Mars which can be... ... middle of paper ... ...ost of what scientists know and need to know about the conditions of Mars is know from the Skylab, Mir and the International Space Station.
