STATES CHRONICLE – Scientists from NASA had long thought about a plan for Mars colonization, about the development of the spaceships and their capacity, but also about what will be doing there once we reach the Red Planet. Apparently, experts and regular people have shared their opinions regarding the great plan. Scientists who are currently developing the series of documentaries about Mars have asked several people about their views concerning travel to Mars.
NASA has prepared this type of journey to Mars for 2033, so people must get used to the idea that soon we will colonize Mars and that we need to come up with an excellent plan to do it. When National Geographic scientists interviewed people by asking them if they want to be part of the crew setting off for Mars, they received a categorical and sonorous negative answer.
However, one single positive response raised the interest of scientists. Stephen Petranek, who wrote “How We’ll Live on Mars” and whose book will be used for the upcoming TV series of documentaries, has argued that he desires to travel to Mars. People who are part of the crew filming the TV series had, apparently, chosen the negative answer, especially now when they have learned so much about the perks of being in space, living in terrible conditions.
They have traveled to Budapest and Morocco to film the series and have found out a lot of data about the from world’s leading astrophysicists how tough would it be to live on an entirely different planet, which imposes entirely distinct conditions. Half of the episodes from the first season of “Mars” are already ready. When filming, many actors and ordinary people have unveiled how difficult it will be for us even to land on the Red Planet, leaving aside the living part.
Traveling to Mars is terrifying, especially when thinking about the landing part. It takes only one wrong decision for the whole crew and all the tourists on the ship to die. It is very dangerous, and nobody can be a hundred percent sure of anything. When thinking about actually populating the planet, only considering the extreme changes of temperatures could give you the chills.
The air is mainly composed of carbon dioxide which is 95% present in the structure of it. The lack of solar power is also a very discouraging disadvantage. To enable Mars colonization, we need to figure out how we will have enough supplies of food, water, energy, oxygen and materials for building shelters.
