The Earth is the lucky third planet from the Sun and the largest of the solar system’s four terrestrial planets. It is the most suitable place for human beings to live because it has adequate sources of everything essential for human beings. Predictions about the end of the world have been denied before. However many people predict that 2012 will be the end of our world. According to Mayan’s calendar, the world will end in the year 2012.Thus is why NASA as the organization that investigates on astronomy tries to find another planet for human beings to live in if the Earth really ends in 2012.From all the perspectives there are a few obstacles that human beings need to overcome in order to live on the new ‘Earth’ which are the preparations for survival on it, existence of other creatures and the adaptations of human towards the planet.

Surviving on the new “Earth” requires a lot of preparations to be done in order to overcome any obstacles. According to “Genetic Engineering,”(n.d.) it would be a big challenge to find a volunteer who are willing to take the risk to travel to the new “Earth”. This is because of the high possibility to be infected by diseases as well as high probability to crash with other elements in space. Oxygen is human being’s basic need. However, excessive oxygen consumed by human beings may lead to oxygen toxicity while lacking of oxygen will result in hypoxia( “Will we live”,n.d.). Besides, there are a lot of elements in space such as meteor and star which are harmful to the human beings. The limitation of transportation technology makes it hard for human beings to travel to the new “Earth”. “Could we survive,”(n.d.) proposes that human beings have to create space ships that eventually multiply the speed of h...
