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 –>

Dussehra (victory of good over evil)

Published

on

Dussehra Is celebrated to represent victory of good over evil means prabhu Rama over Ravana in famous hindu epic Ramayan. Also it means the end of durga puja & Ramlila. In Ramayan, Ravana kidnaps god Rama’s wife Sita, as god Rama & Laxman cuted of the nose of ravna’s sister surpanakha so to claim vengeance on them Ravana kidnapped sita. To get back maa sita prabhu Rama & Laxman faught battel against Ravana with the help of hanuman, subriv & other vanar sena. In this battel Rawan’s brother Bhibishan also helped him against Ravan . at the end of prabhu Ram wins the battel and rescues sita. Thereafter this victory is celebrated by burning the statue of Ravan, kumbhakarn, his son meghnath. Dasehra is a climax of long day celebration of Navratri.

           The nine days of Navratri is the time to reflect on oneself, observe silence & practice fasting. Fasting cleanses the body of toxins and silence purifies speech & mind. what does dasehra means das means ten and hara means take away. Which came after Navratri means nine nights if darkness.  On each day of Navratri we pray to that form of goddess durga to take away that darkness of ignorance within us and after that on tenth day on the occasion of dasehra we burn all the evil, bad things, thoughts, bad habbits inside us in that fire in the form of Ravna as evil inside us.

Ravan is not the demon or evil outside you it is inside you. In the battel of Ram and Ravana, god ram had been invoked durga to help him win the battel against Ravan, And he won. We also should invoked god durga to help us in gaining back our sita. Now what is sita?  It is awareness inside is which has been traped in maya surround us. To make our soul clean and pure we have to burn the evil in the fire by wining the battel against it which lies inside us that’s what dasehra symbolize.

It is a supreme festival of Hindu culture with true meaning. It also symbolize the feminism as the battel is to gain maa Sita again back as Ravan has kidnaped her. whenever  man crosses his limit and try to hurt marayda of stree. She will become god durga and make him to death. When the Rama wins then there is only light. So choice is ours. Either we become Ravana & get entrapped in the worldly pleasure or become Rama (A spiritual being)

The Celebration of Good over Evil

Navaratri is the opportunity for removal of vanity and evil influences and learning to achieve the ultimate truth and meaning of life through spiritual means.

Navaratri (Nava-nine; Ratri-nights) is usually celebrated, as its name suggests, within a span of 9 nights and 10 days. It falls on the Ashvin month according to the Hindu calendar. It celebrates the victory of good over evil; the defeat of negative energies by the righteous or morally upright. The rituals performed during Navaratri is dedicated to Devi Ma, the divine feminine. Each night is dedicated to the worship of nine personalities (Navadurga) and express gratitude to the Mother Divine. Devi is considered as the omnipresent cosmic energy. Devotees often fast, meditate, pray and perform certain rituals.

The rituals are followed by external festivities such as cultural functions and fairs. Cultural functions include Garba/ Dandiya nights and other social functions whereas rituals include Ghatasthapana and other spiritual activities. Women gather up in various societies and perform their rituals together.

But things have changed amidst this Pandemic. People are avoiding social gatherings. They are visiting temples with their masks on and abiding by the guidelines of the Government by following the social distancing norms. Most of the relatives are greeting each other via online platforms and celebrating this auspicious occasion by face-timing each other.

According to sources, many cities (like Indore, Raipur, etc.) have cancelled Garba nights, thus, leaving the hearts of many youngsters broken. Each State Government has taken precautions not to let more than 100 people assemble anywhere.

Jagaran reports that Prayagraj is celebrating Shardiya Navaratra in a unique manner. Famous singers across the city are preparing for devotional songs and performing them via online platforms so that people can get access to the divine celebration by staying at home as well.

Navaratri’s focus is to show reverence to the creation which is a gift of Devi Ma and it is rightly done if we start respecting our Mother Earth in the right terms.

Why do we have blood types?

Published

on

Blood is bodily fluid that circulates through body and deliver essential nutrients and oxygen to every cell of our body.

For thousands of years nobody really understood blood. A greek doctor from 200 BC believed that blood was created from food and liver, this thought lived nearly 1500 years. It was early 17th century when a British ‘Dr. William Harvey’ discovered that blood circulated circulated through body. This experiment spawned the age of blood transfusion. In 1665 an english physician successfully kept one dog alive by transfusing blood of another dog into his body. Later after two years doctors experimented transfusing animals blood into human body in which the human patient died due to blood clotting.

It wasn’t until 1900s when ‘Dr. Karl Landsteiner’ understood that animals even humans have different blood. He later researched on blood and developed a system to categorize blood type known as A-B-O blood group system. Dr. Landsteiner traced transfusion complication like death and blood clot is caused by two things Antigens and Antibodies. Antigen is anything that triggers our immune system to respond. Usually viruses and Bacteria fall in this category, usually our immune system recognize these invaders and deploy antibodies to destroy them. Antibodies are proteins produced by our immune system that can recognize, investigate and if needed can destroy Antigens.But our own body also produce some Antigens called Self-Antigens which our immune system leave them alone. The whole A-B-O group system  is based upon these sugar based Self-Antigens and corresponding protein based antibodies. 

Depending upon the presence and absence of these Antigens and Antibodies our blood is divided into four types. Type A blood has A-antigen on blood and B-antibody in plasma. Type B blood has B-antigen on blood and A-antibody in plasma. Type AB has both A-antigen and B-antigen with no Antibodies in plasma. Type O has both A-antibody and B-antibody with no Antigens on blood. 

The positives and the negatives after our blood type is given by detecting the presence or absence of Rh protein based Antigen. Presence of Rh protein gives positive sign after blood type while absence gives negative sign after blood type. 

Blood is foremost the most important fluid in our body. By understanding our blood we can ensure tranfusing right blood type to the needy ones.
