The people who *are* in echo chambers are the people who haven't critically evaluated whether sending 7000 troops to the border is a good use of resources, or a stunt to inflame their fears. Think about this if we sent somebody out to Mars and it wasn't safe then that person wouldn't come back. Due to its weaker gravity, the moon would hold onto its atmosphere for tens of thousands of years. I'm not convinced. Bill Nye made remarks this week in an interview this week with USA Today. Saturn’s largest moon Titan is the only natural satellite with more than a trace atmosphere. Something similar will happen on Mars. Why We Shouldn´t Go To Mars Why Shouldn´t We Go To Mars?Why is it so important? We will have used up this rock long before we have figured out how to go live somewhere else. etc. While this is unlikely, It is an interesting allusion of how advanced human civilizations have disappeared in the past. There are plenty of places on Earth that we have not set up shop which are still a trillion times more hospitable than Mars. Yes, and also he's wrong as heck. We also know that certain classes of bacteria have very high thresholds for radiation and for temperature: they're extremophiles, they love extremes. How many stillbirths are you willing to tolerate, As for success of any permanent colonization attempts? (Go ahead and down rank me. his comments on this one just get me thinking of the comment in the past that nobody will ever use more than 265k of ram. Too bad, things are so screwed up that most of the stuff that came even in the early 80's science kits couldn't be sold these days. We are not responsible for them in any way. ’”. many of the things of science fiction have a strange way of becoming common every day items... look at cell phones, or microwaves, or any number of other common items, 50 years ago many were only science fiction... 99% of science fiction didn't come true (and probably never will). You're technically correct, but missing the bigger picture. Or just lots of cancers. Seems like all the recent spacesuit designs developed for Mars, the Moon,etc. According to Maggie Koerth-Baker in, “Danger! Physics fundamentals dictate that Mars will never resemble Earth, but it's human nature that people will one day live on it in a self-sustaining manner. For humanity to continue to survive we must leave our home. . The reason he or she might think this is because the safety of our astronauts. Which ones? That is, encourage, don't discourage. You can't use Antarctica as proof we can't live permanently on Mars since we didn't try to live permanently there. If we don't blow the planet up in the next decade or two I'll be surprised but anything can happen. Mars is one-sixth the siz of Earth. Think of him as a science teacher for adults, very science illiterate adults. We're putting so much money into going to mars, We don't even know if it will be successful. We should go to Mars. It may be a sad day for most of us. What are the risks of dust and sand on Mars? You mean like the time he went all-in-for with 'gender identity' and pseudoscience surrounding it? Pull your lips off of Bill Nye's asshole for just a moment. City scope. Beyond some unknown future economic potential that Mars could provide that the Earth simply could not, once you go past the scientific/adventure angles, there's really only one compelling reason to go to Mars - survival of the species. Maybe his definition of 'colony' isn't the same as yours (or his is the definition the newspapers want to hear. Combine the fact that extremophiles exist, that rocks move from planet to planet, and that Mars was wet before Earth was wet, and you have to admit the possibility that life traveled from Mars to Earth as stowaways in the cracks of rocks. Just because technology does not exist but you want it to doesn't mean it someday will. What is Mars? Give us a hundred years and maybe we could grow crops in Antarctica. A big meteor hits Mars, and thrusts rocks into space that then land on Earth; we know that this happens. I don't think it will ever make sense. So, maybe ~500 years from now we'll figure it out. To play this quiz, please finish editing it. And we could most likely be pretty self-sufficient there, since it's got oxygen and a lot of ice to melt for water. Now look at Mars - it is worse in every way. This is despite the fact that Musk's "Hyperloop" is rusting out in California and all he has built is a short tunnel in a parking lot. Moving 1,000 comets seems not too far off from our capabilities today. (Oh they won't build a paradise, but I can't see nobody trying.). All the same, I think he's wrong on this one. And to even send people to Mars and to attempt forming life over there before fixing the environment is an absolute no no! No we shouldn't go to mars. If we would not welcome them home then they would be stuck on Mars and would never see their family again. The place is covered in chemicals that are hazardous to humans. At the rate we're going, Antarctica should be a pretty nice place to live within the next 100-200 years. Otherwise you won't find folks living anywhere. If we ever had sufficient technology to get there safely in significant numbers, supply the needed raw materials, manufacture or transport the needed equipment, manipulate biology to deal with various poisons and other environmental factors, etc. NASA Astronaut Explains Why We Should Send Humans To Mars (VIDEO) ... “There have been a lot of clues we’ve seen that there is potentially life on Mars, but the only way to find out is really to go there,” he told The Huffington Post during a community event held by NASA on Wednesday in New York City. Why We Shouldn't Go to Mars The End. Why would you bring your spacesuit inside the facility? These arn't the sort of problems you can hand wave away. So maybe the whole "global warming" thing is a hoax to scare us into volunteering to get on giant rockets to go live on the colonies in Mars! We could pollute earth beyond the most dystopian imagination, and it would still be better than living on Mars. It is great country full of rocks, swamps and lakes but living there is hard. Three reasons why we shouldn't go to Mars 1. Koerth-Baker writes in paragraph 8, If the astronaut millions of miles away from home, What if he/she forgets a safety procedure? I think we should go to mars because, if there is a mission to mars we would be able to learn more about mars. If we've learned anything from recent Sci-Fi movies, it's that you can send Matt Damon anywhere and he'll somehow survive. And there's lots of radiation that will have a strong tendency to not-so-slowly kill humans because Mars doesn't have a magnetosphere to protect us, like the Earth does. In 1969, astronauts landed on the moon, which represented a landmark in humans’ history. We are a long way away from making the "monkeys in a can" model of space colonization workable. Why Mars, and not another planet? A counterargument is: This quiz is incomplete! Thank you! We should not go to Mars because we do not have the technology to get up to Mars. By: Julie Brewer Better Programs Facts About Mars There might be water on Mars, but no one is sure. Plus, we won't damage any ecosystems up there with our human desire to expand and improve. If that's the case, maybe Mars had life before Earth had life. All Its 350 Employees Work Remotely, "Our vision is to speed up time, eventually eliminating it." Sometime soon, something’s gonna happen that will send you tumbling over into a whole new era of human evolution. Mars is barred: why we shouldn't go to the red planet – Science Weekly podcast Elon Musk believes we should colonise Mars to ensure the survival of the human race . If we're not going to live on Mars?Where will everybody have to go, when we all live forever? But nobody wants to live there in a permanent colony. Play this game to review English. Wait! Ergo, I argue Bill Nye is no longer human. Mars would be an incredible leap for humanities space exploration. It costs over ten billion which is an insane amount of money. People don't live there because of *treaties*. Uhh, yeah, no. Both types of radiation could damage DNA and increase you on getting cancer. Yes, you _could_ genetically engineer people to live on Mars without as much need for terraforming, but ... keep in mind we are only now starting to address genetic engineering for very very slight changes to single genes. Also the ground is made of a toxic superfine dust. Though I'm slightly misusing it, you need an awful lot of solar power to make anything approaching a physical thing you can eat from the raw materials around you (which you will use up and need to be replenished from off-world sources unless you're literally synthesising food from pure energy, which you're not going to be for a few centuries yet). "May" != "Will". The first post is. If the whole planet is just made out of Iron then yeah Iron, But that’s the only resource we have from mars and nothing else. He is one of the people that set me on the path to being more of a man of science. Obviously, he is right in the very short term, nobody is moving there today and, likely, not in the next decade or three. But import just one comet, and it would provide water for a large earth-sheltered mining base. Downright balmy. To mine it and exploit it like we do this one. Our entire federal government is run by a reality television show host. Mars is the first step in exploring the solar system. In the second instalment of his two-part feature on human missions to Mars, Dr Alexander Kumar asks whether we should send people to the Red Planet given our poor record managing this one. Sure you can. How can we ever hope to colonize the New World, when we can't even live at peace among ourselves here in continental Europe? So, if one individual fails to rebut his points on the merits, then it necessarily must follow that no rebuttal is possible?Really?Wow.Just wow. Sure, I'd love to believe we'll terraform Mars. I'll take Arthur C Clarke for $100, Alex: Re:I'll take Arthur C Clarke for $100, Alex: Bill Nye is forgetting about the Matt Damon factor. He's also wrong about how much frozen water is available because truth be told no one knows for a matter of fact yet (but some argue there is actually a great deal locked away below ground). What about radiation, (temporary) dependence on supply flighty that take half a year to arrive, or how to build a production infrastructure (so you can build enough domes that taking a walk won't involve donning a space suit)? Nobody lives on Antarctica permanently because there's no good reason to. Your risk of a violent or even terrifying death is extremely high. There also can be more resources for us and probably even new resources. That asteroid could have caused a global catastrophe and there was very little we could have done to change that. We’ve got some awesome news for you. Watch/Read The Martian - terrible movie/book, precisely because you only need look at the calculations done in it to realise the amount of stuff you need for even one human to live any length of time. As for Mars? Maybe. No new comments can be posted. And there are loads of people living there. For anything from 5-10 people, you would need an entire garden centre or thereabouts. Biologists would continue to revel in the biodiversity of life as we know it, but at the end of the day there'd still be only a sample of one: DNA-based life. When the the first Apollo mission landed on the moon they only had 30 seconds of fuel left, 30 SECONDS! Submission: Bill Nye: We are not going to live on Mars, let alone turn it into Earth, 'Sending Astronauts To Mars Would be Stupid', Legendary Mathematician Sir Michael Atiyah Dies at Age 89. Time and time again, the pursuit of society-scale technological challenges has proven to be beneficial. We would never go to Mars if we took better care of our planet. But landing on Mars is probably the most dangerous event of all. So sorry dissidents, no revolution from space is coming to foment building your {Libertarian, Socialist, Facist, No Assholes} paradise. The way I had learned science was that most things are considered to be truth, though open to other ideas, and the idea that a new option might come up that brings about a different view. For example, see multitudes of mining towns and interior ports that have come and gone. Does it make the effort not worthwhile? And that food doesn't grow out of nothing. You'll need regular water sent to you by Earth or someone, or a way to generate it en-masse that we don't really have yet. I'll NEVER volunteer to do THAT! And all the people who die trying to live on Mars (or die just trying to get there) is none of their concern. We’re gonna colonize Mars. Ultimately, I believe that we should not go to Mars. A user posted an interesting scenario in a comment on one of NASA’s blogs proposing that the lost civilization of Atlantis could have possibly been on Mars, Therefore we have already destroyed one perfectly suitable planet in the past. I can't say it won't happen in 10,000 years. Actually "we" already have several different models to choose from - you and I just can't afford to even look at the price tag. Like populating the Earth by the Golgafrinchams in HHGG, but in reverse. Why though? The facts are there, and Earth is getting much hotter, much quicker. Clearly, We could get a plague from the martian environment. In fact, however, Trump is not simply evil, but a selfish moronic blowhard asshole who is known to lie over even easily disproved matters. Last but not least, exploration and pushing onward to new vistas is one of our defining traits. Considering the number of terrestrial political revolutions and upheavals, I find that assertion unlikely too, at least after any kind of self sufficiency is achieved. So lets go to Mars. We could have built giant underground farms with grow lights, dropped in a nuclear power plant, built an underground infrastructure, etc. Find some valuable resource worth extracting* down there and there will be folks living down there. Lots don't even know if there's enough oxygen, or how people would get there, or how much money it This discussion has been archived. Water is very common on Mars. The only way to live long-term on the moon would be in domed cities or underground structures with thick layers of regolith to stop that radiation. We are presently a one-planet species, but even if we cleaned up our act and made the Earth a sustainable place to live for the very long term, we're one catastrophic event away from oblivion. We don't know for sure if it is safe or not. I know you all really like Queen Isabella, but this is all just fantasy. Even the ISS doesn't have proper permanent residents, and that's only a day away if there's anything majorly wrong. Still coming from Tyson we don't learn anything new about biology. For once, he's right. And you ought to have been doing this twenty years ago. Nye? Elon Musk has been known to reiterate the importance … . Physics fundamentals dictate that Mars will never resemble Earth, but it's human nature that people will one day live on it in a self-sustaining manner. So, like a lot of earthbound colonization? "We choose to go to the moon, not because it's easy but because it's hard". Not likely. Come on, now; it's very much an RTS for the decision makers of this world. Its taking a huge risk. I'm thinking more like the pressure domes in the martian movie. If we go to mars, we would have a chance to start over, like a new earth. Why not just put them at the Lagrange Points? Why We Can't Send Humans to Mars Yet (And How We'll Fix That) There's been a recent uptick in the idea of a human mission to Mars. 24/7. Probably a lot more than we put in orbit. “We are not going to go to the moon or Mars because of population pressure,” he explained. If we had tried and failed, that would be another story. On the way flying to Mars it may take over a year and during that time you will face serious health risks from to main types of radiation like cosmic rays and energetic particles from the Sun. For some value of "permanent". You get the gravity and atmosphere you want, without the mind-boggling time that terraforming would take. ), people will go. Sorry.I find the Antarctica comparison convincing. Humans have never gone to Mars, and scientists still aren’t sure if there has ever been life there. We cannot rule out a common ancestor for Earth life and possible present or past Mars life. This Mission To Mars Could Bore You To Death”, She writes “boredom is one of the biggest threats to a manned Mars mission” (Paragraph 3). There is literally an entire planet full of creatures evolving to kill us. Second, Mars kills stupid people much more quickly than the North Pole. They would carry with them their earthly microbes. No air, no plants, no water and winters that are even colder! Crazy 'ol Elon Musk think we're going to establish colonies there in the next 30 years! Is this a sustainable mission? Thinking it'll be soon is crazy but thinking it can't happen is not science. And who will follow? At least, not relatively pure water ice, not mixed with perchlorates.). Why is he just mentioning solvable things? It was just too pretentious. Except for a few valley towns, First Nations reserves and settlements, and some mining centres, people are measured in 1s and 10s per 100 square km. For research, for hunting, for fishing, and for mining/resources. No. These could all end us, so if we move to Mars, then there's a chance we won't end up dying. The moon would require roughly 1,000 comets to terraform. Production of goods meant for consumption in space? The other thing is the resources on the planet, Well all we know is the Iron on the surface, But thats all. Possibly, If someone gets sick on Mars and we welcome them to Earth they can spread the plague to men and Homo Sapiens can be wiped from the planet. If that drive crashes, that file is gone forever. Why? “. There may be riches in the New World, but it will never be worth the time or effort to extract them. Outside 'well, there is gravity! Re:Why is he just mentioning solvable things? Physics fundamentals dictate that Mars will never resemble Earth, but it's human nature that people will one day live on it in a self-sustaining manner. We don't even know fully if there is oxygen or water on Mars. A statement like that tells be someone doesn't have the slightest clue as to human nature. During the "Gold Rush" of the mid 1800s the people who made the most money were not the miners. We would all share common DNA. According to Mike Wall, A senior writer, On Space. Helium 3? Is it safe to live on Mars? What benefit does building industrial infrastructure so far out,a way from any potential markets, have? Power isn't free either, you need a whole bunch of equipment with a limited lifespan in a very harsh environment (see above) producing an AWFUL lot of power just to keep the temperature up and the lights on. (Sure, that atmosphere would be lost in a million years, but so what?). Why, the ladies! It is irresponsible to spend money for scientists to risk their lives to go to Mars. You know there's loads of fish there, yes? Astronauts can be bored to death. Lots more water. I'd bet it would be easier to deal with a supervolcano that colonizing Mars. It is a fact that instead of going to Mars you can take a cruise trip around Earth 2.5 million times. It's a matter of technology. If we had wanted to, we probably could have. This is John F. Kennedy's famous Rice Moon Speech. Most of them selfish, short-sighted, etc. Well put. More water to sustain the food year-round than you drink as pure-water yourself. But if we hand pick people who care about the sort of thing, then the greediness (for a time) won't hold people back. Many spacecraft have died trying to get to Mars. We shouldn't set up any large colonies yet or we might just leave earth to fend for itself after we've mucked it up, but definitely some small bases to experiment with. In similar fashion, humans intend to send a manned spacecraft to Mars.The mystery of Mars is always fascinating to humans on earth throughout the history. When Trump spends $120M of taxpayer dollars to dispatch 7000 troops to the southern border - Depriving those troops of their families at Thanksgiving and Christmas - Based on a threat that is not factual, then I judge him on that, because the facts do not support his actions. -- Alex Schure. Does that make it impossible? I'll give you the Great Wall, but not the Pyramids, unless you're talking about the span from the beginning of the first one until the finishing of the last one. *Knowledge qualifies. Artificial gravity so that people can survive the two month flight isn't too difficult - a long. Not one where international treaties prevent resource exploitation. The only reason Antarctica remains an international research park is that there has been so little interest in colonizing it. People will stop paying taxes if their money funds a … … Even if it's barren and hostile as Mars. Look at all the national claims on Antarctica. . Then if we try to search for life, all we find is our bacteria. And you're doing that all day, every day, constantly and hoping the insulation saves you some power. Comets would provide both water, oxygen, and momentum (spin). It would be pointless to send some guys to mars for just a few hours like they did with Apollo. And you should try not to make assumptions about people like me. Mars is the one planet that people believe is most likely to contain life or has contained life. Scientist Stephen Hawking claims that humans need to colonize planets in the next 1,000 years to ensure survival. It's difficult to take you seriously when you fail to recognize that Jupiter is a gas planet so as far as Jupiter goes, there is no "on" to be. Bill Nye: We Are Not Going To Live on Mars, Let Alone Turn It Into Earth. That's one of many many many dozens of examples. That is if humans can even survive long-term in 1/6th gravity. In the story “Dark They Were, And Golden-Eyed” Ray Bradbury wrote, “‘Chances are a plague did this town in, Sir. Many people believe that there may be life in Mars 'cause of all the tv shows, movies, stories, etc. There also can be more resources for us and probably even new resources. If you get cancer there isn’t yet any way of medical. Why leave Earth other than to feel like you're important? There are resources. Seriously. Will there be a base on mars in the next century? Zubrin walks through many of these problems and their potential solutions in his book "Case for Mars", an interesting read. And contaminated, both with salts and a number of toxic chemicals. Menaker: Why humans shouldn’t go to Mars. My first reason was that we could find life on mars.According to Neil deGrasse Tyson (Director, Hayden Planetarium) There is evidence to suggest that Mars was wet before Earth was wet. Heat:Antarctica lowest: â'89.2 ÂCMars lowest: â'153 ÂC. These arn't the sort of problems you can hand wave away. Look at all the national claims on Antarctica. And mostly-self-directed robotic mining equipment no longer sounds like far-fetched SF. So, maybe ~500 years from now we'll figure it out, but in the mean time maybe we should focus on other more realistic things. What we need is to clean up our act here. Why Shouldn't We Send Man To The Moon -For Now The first reason I think that we shouldn't send man to Mars is that we already have our own ball of dirt to use and destroy with garbage, ash, chemicals and other things that damage the Earth's ecosystem. I'm with the OP. One thousand comets, and the Moon's low gravity still wouldn't hold the water. current technology and a lot of engineering, Misleading Virus Video, Pushed By the Trumps, Spreads Online, He Called it a 'Scamdemic' - Then Saw His Family Getting Sick, 'No Clear Evidence' Hydroxychloroquine Works Against COVID-19, Trump Declares National Emergency To Speed Coronavirus Response, Coronavirus: Trump Suspends Travel From Europe To US. The largest volcano in the solar system is on Cold. Right now, with our current level of technology and environmental concern, all we'll do is shit all over Mars over a dozen failed colonization attempts before anyone gets one to stick. 1. However, sending people to Mars for long periods of time would be extremely unsafe, and we shouldn’t … Nye will eat his word when Musk bores a hole all the way t Mars. When somebody says "we" are not "ever" going to do XYZ, it's usually safe to read as, "nobody reading this will be around to see the day when..." I think people generally understand that making predictions about technology 10,000 years from now is impossible, beyond the very basics like speed of light or conservation of energy. My reasons are we could find life, we can I find something new,and because the resources mars has. it, and have made tremendous progress in that direction in just a bit less than a single century, local time... We should terraform Antarctica just to piss Bill Nye off. And the difficulty and expense of all those things you mention is orders of magnitude greater than living in the Antarctic, which nobody does. On the other hand, people taking fantasy technology as a given are real problem in science. Perhaps we should send him to Antarctica and have him make that place habitable before moving to Mars. Mars offers the potential for self-sufficiency that simply is not possible anywhere else in the solar system with our current levels of technology. Taxes generate too little money, and the government would have to borrow money. How safe is the journey? Ahm, it really isn't human nature outside science fiction. Face it, we're all screwed as a species on Earth if we continue to change our climate like we're doing now. Its just frozen. Mars is not a candidate for terraforming, but it would make an excellent radioactive landfill. The Earth's environment has been more than enough, and most of those rich corporations don't give a hoot about it, and would much rather mega profit on that! I evaluate Trump, his surrogates, and his supporters based on whether what they are saying is *FACTUAL* - And whether their actions make sense based on the facts at hand. You got yer Moon/Earth, Earth/Sun, Any one object/Any other object. Dismissing life on Mars and then talking about the things that are among the easiest? Shhhhhhhhh: don't tell them that our 3rd rock has been secretly colonized by denizens from the 2nd rock, who have already begun terraforming...errrr...venusforming(?) If we could get there as fast as we could get to the moon it would be better. yeah, in the recent past he seems to have gone the way of a lot of our political leaders... if you're not with me, your wrong. Food:Now that you have limited water stocks, you need more water. Plenty of empty deserts on Earth where virtually nobody's pushing onward to new vistas, Antarctica included. U are dumb to think that mars would be good because it is not it really is not good enough for humans to live it just isn't good enough like cmon people it just wouldn't be good like honestly it is not good for people to live because you are stupid! Are we going to go to colonize Mars in the next 10 years? Will the mission be harmful to Mars’ environment? as far as I know, we haven't pulled off such a multi-generational project. The only reason it's not colonized is that it's an international research park by treaty. Another reason we should go to Mars, is to inspire the next generation of space explorationers. This really is not true. Also we could take better care for mars and not pollute it like Earth. Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb over a 10- to 20-year period [wikipedia.org] concluding around 2560 BC.
