Colonizing Space: Inner Solar System

Published

on

Science fiction has repeatedly said to us that, we belong out there, among the stars. As human body is made up of stardust that comprises of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, atomic nuclie and electrons. But before we rule in Space we should at least practice for surviving there.

One of the major environmental concerns of our time is the increasing consumption of Earth’s resources and we’re completely degrading it to sustain our way of life. As more and more nations make the climb up from agricultural to industrial nations, their standard of life will improve, which will mean that more and more people will be competing for the same resources.

While NASA’s efforts and other inventions can allow us to be thriftier with Earth’s resources, we nevertheless must come to grips with the problem that humanity is currently limited to one planet. We can see seamless efforts of collective agencies working upon it. No matter though we fail to colonize at primary attempts we can still come back on Earth. Furthermore, here are some planets that we’re heading to colonize and if you find this article interesting stay tuned for next article about “Colonizing Space Outer Solar System”https://theparadoxnews.com/uncategorized/colonizing-space-outer-solar-system/

Meanwhile, lets understand why is building colonies in Space important and how it could be done.

By building Space colonies, we can solve the medical problems occurring due to microgravity or weightlessness in Space and also to protect astronauts from high radiations when they’d be exposed in Space after leaving Earth. The colonists would mine the Earth’s Moon, few other planets and their moons. This would help in building beamed power satellites that would supplement or replace power plants on the Earth.

 

The colonists could also take advantage of the plentiful raw materials, unlimited solar power, and microgravity in other ways to create products that we cannot while inside the cocoon of Earth’s atmosphere and gravity. Let me make a clear point to you; by doing this we can replace the current earth-polluting industries and these colonies would help environment in many ways. Hence, the bulges on Earth would be minimized we’d be able to work more on its ecology.

Mercury is the closest planet from the Sun, and one of the most difficult places that we might attempt to colonize. As its so close to Sun it receives an enormous amount of heat. Nullifying drawbacks we have with Mercury here is how we can sort it out. Due to smaller size of Mercury it has high percentage of metals and it is incredibly rich in minerals. High powered solar robots could scour the surface of Mercury, gathering rare metals and other minerals to be sent off to world.

Mercury will have large deposits of Helium-3, useful for future fusion reactors. On Mercury, lava flows millions of years ago, with work these could be turned into safe, underground habitats, protected from the radiation, high temperatures and hard vacuum on the surface. This could be protected using a mushroom-shaped heat shield to protect a colony.

In the beginning, colonizing the surface of Venus defies our ability. One of the astonishing thing is that when we get high in atmosphere of Venus of about 52.5 kilometres, the atmosphere is equivalent as that of Earth that would provide breathable air and we could imagine floating colonies on Venus. Meanwhile, it is so close the Sun there’s plenty of solar power. What could you do with it? The atmosphere itself would probably serve as a source of raw materials. Carbon is the basis for all life on earth. We’ll need it for food and building materials in space.Floating factories could process the thick atmosphere of Venus, to extract carbon, oxygen, and other elements. Heat resistant robots could be lowered down to the surface to gather minerals. Venus’ atmosphere is made mostly out of carbon dioxide, nitrogen and sulfur dioxide, these could be sequestered to create fertilizers and other chemical compounds. CO² could also be chemically separated to create oxygen gas, and the resulting carbon could be used to manufacture graphene, carbon nanotubes and other super-materials. In addition to being used for possible solar shields, they could also be exported off-world as part of the local economy.Moon is an ideal place to colonize. The lunar regolith, the pulverized rocky surface of the Moon, can be used as concrete to make structures. Spacecraft have identified large deposits of water at the Moon’s poles. Colonizing the Moon would allow us to explore and develop technologies to help us move ahead as a space-faring species.
A solid working ground to push the human race forward, with more of our strengths and less of our weaknesses. In order to colonize we have Powering habitats on the Moon, Permanent shadow regions as a source of water, Farming on the Moon; since areas near the lunar poles are in constant sunlight/darkness, rotating farms with temperature control systems can be built.The future of humanity will include the colonization of Mars. There are deposits of water ice at the poles, and under the surface across the planet. Martian ice will be precious, harvested from the planet and used for breathable air, rocket fuel and water for the colonists to drink and grow their food. The Martian regolith can be used to grow food. Mars has lava tubes, and these could be used as pre-dug colony sites, where human Martians can live underground, protected from the hostile environment.
Researchers are not certain yet, but there are good indicators this might have ice inside them, if so that is an excellent source of fuel and could make initial trips to Mars much easier by allowing us to send a first expedition to those moons, who then begin producing fuel to be used to land on Mars and to leave Mars and return home. If a Martian colony can reach a million inhabitants, it’ll be self-sufficient from Earth or any other world. At that point, we would have a true, Solar System civilization.<!– /wp:paragraph –>

EDUCATIONAL CRITICS OF TODAY.

Published

on

For more than a year, we’ve been dwelling around uncharted waters of COVID situation overall the World. 5 years ago, every interviewer who asked the question to the applicant that where do you see yourself after 5 years, might’ve got wrong answers. Previous year was all about how expectations lead to destruction and constant subsiding of plans.


We agree that to take up the reins of all the people was surely a tough task for the government and it’s representatives. We’ve been ferocious for the past time and faced mishaps like the thunder but it’s miserable to see the same situation prevailing again due to carelessness of people and lack of self awareness. If you think you can hide from a virus and get off with it, you are digging your own grave.

We see ‘morons’ of two kinds in this scenario; the ones who have experienced many covid cases in their family and have gotten very nonchalant about taking care and other ones who fortunately didn’t get their family members hospitalised due to covid but may be are waiting for that thing to happen.


Let’s assume there’s no such thing like the coronavirus, it’s just a made up mind-set. But things like Viral infection, respiratory problems, dengue, or infectious diseases etc,. They are prevalent right? Why don’t we take care of ourselves in a way to be safeguarded from mere infectious diseases? I understand, sometimes happenings are unintentional, but why are our actions on them not rational? We are suffering due to irresponsible citizens of our society, and individuals are suffering due to their own actions.


Moving further, in India I’ve never seen a single decision or announcement that didn’t have any arguments. Every decision or announcement ever made had a war of words but a few days ago the decision of not conducting or postponing exams had a very smooth flow throughout multimedia. A silent proclamation thanking the government and saying, “this is all that we wanted.”


Behind this decision there are various types of students ranging from those who were studying all day long for boards to those who didn’t get enough equipment to study. Here again fall two types of the students’ i.e Rich and poor or those with equipment but no willingness to study and other types without equipment but willingness to study.


The decision announced by the Education ministry was amazement. A treat for those who didn’t bother about studying and on the flip side a disappointment for those students who struggled hard to get through formulas and concepts and solved huge question sets. Everyone has different perceptions towards this but the thing that still surprises me is no one is against this decision. Why?


A huge group of people countrywide blames the education system for relevant reasons. In the beginning of 2020, we got the wind of the implementation of new Education policy that ignited glimmers of hope in us but, it has gotten behind the bars for a long time amidst COVID situations.

Lesson 101, Remember- DO NOT BLAME EDUCATION SYSTEM BECAUSE YOU CANNOT SCORE ENOUGH.


I am not making any conclusions about which type of education system is right or wrong but mental ageism is pervasive in our society. Mainly dogmatism, when one group says, “Present education system is bad” with their own reasons, another group with blindfolded eyes, agrees with them with their set of beliefs and this is how we see dogmatism settles its roots.


If the education system is bad, what stops you from studying/ doing what you love? What pulls you back to prove yourself? Why are we all dependent on the government to announce their decisions that are unacceptable at first place but we all follow it like blind herd of sheep?

Lesson 102, Remember- WE ARE GOVERNED BY THE TYPE OF GOVERNMENT WE DESERVE.


If I unite the world’s voice together, the truth is unless and until Coronavirus doesn’t get diminished completely, there would be no stability in the education sector or any other. In such circumstances, our foremost duty is to educate us by ourselves. COVID has indulged us much into how to make use of technology, gadgets, and how to make precise use of the internet. Problem is our inability to use it. And that inability is different at every level.


Lesson 103, Remember- BE THE MASTER OF THE CHANGE NOT A VICTIM OF THE CHANGE.


Regardless of COVID, if we take a deeper look and compare all the students countrywide, not everyone has a smartphone or proper guidance. I preach to the student protestors who had the banners stating “Shiksha online toh Pariksha offline kyu?” When you’ve a relevant question, you must also have an answer to it. If exams are supposed to be conducted online without cheating why don’t we build certain websites for that? You cheat once or twice but…. Lesson 104, Remember- A CHEAT ALWAYS REMAINS A CHEATER.


If the health of students is a major concern for the government, why don’t they settle new ways of conducting fair exams? Are we gonna have the same uncertainties in the education sector for the future? It’s not only the government who could do that but any intellectual person.


Such a huge pandemic that lasts for more than a year would leave back it’s impact for more than two times of it’s suffering.

Lesson 105, Remember- AWAKE AND REALISE, OR STAY BLINDFOLDED AND PERISH AS THIS IS THE RACE OF SURVIVAL OF FITTEST.
