Thoughts on Past InventionsApril 1, 2021
Space has always been a wonder for people living on earth. Since 1958 or more, people have been doing continuous research on the planets, solar system meteors, black holes, etc. I am not a scientist or a science student. To be very honest I never liked science, so I had no interest in space or the solar system. But as we grow, we must keep up with society, have minimum knowledge on every topic to portray ourselves as wise and prudent. All I know about the space and solar system is the sun, moon, stars, planets, and a big black universe where people are struggling to find any sort of ugly looking alien, who is physically disabled, always after the human race, trying to destroy the earth and whatnot.
Science and research have gone too far in today’s era. Life on Mars! By far the most fascinating result of science in the history of Space and the solar system. More than 100 countries are sending various satellites, spacecraft every day to know more and more. Science is doing incredible. I salute the astronauts who have risked their lives to explore space. There is no doubt space is an extremely dangerous place, but only a handful of space travelers have died there. U.S spacecraft Mars pathfinder was the first spacecraft to land on Mars in 1997. It consisted of a lander and a small 10.6 kilograms (23 lb) wheeled robotic rover named Sojourner, which was the first rover to operate on the surface of Mars. The atmosphere of Mars is the layer of gases surrounding Mars. It also contains trace levels of water vapor, oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen, and other noble gases. The atmosphere of Mars is much thinner than Earth’s. As per my knowledge from various news articles and Facebook newsfeed, there is the possibility of survival of life on Mars. Exciting! There are facts stating that the red planet has blue sunset. That sounds so cool.
Humans on Mars has been the subject of science fiction, aerospace research since the 20th century. President John F. Kennedy fueled with the Soviet Union dubbed the “space race” to become Kennedy Space Center from a testing ground for new rockets to a center successful at launching humans to the moon. Neil Armstrong’s “one small step” on the lunar surface in 1969 achieved a goal that sounded like science fiction just a few years earlier. The first human in space was Yuri Gagarin, who flew the Vostok 1 spacecraft, which was launched by the Soviet Union on 12 April 1961 as part of the Vostok program. By landing on the moon, the United States effectively won the space race that had begun with Sputnik’s launch in 1957. During the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union engaged in a competition to see who had the best technology in space. The Space Race was considered important because it showed the world which country had the best science, technology, and economic system.
Future of the space technology will probably be focusing on space tourism. Imagine if traveling is made easier and affordable, travelling to space will be so exciting. In the beginning, it will be mostly available for high-paying customers but within the next decade, the price of visiting space will come down drastically. And one day human race can leave planet Earth. They will probably settle down on the red planet or on the moon, making high-rise buildings into high-tech transportations. Science has no boundaries, maybe people might build floating houses or spacecraft as their homes on the milky Way. Humans will probably become these imaginary Aliens who are not physically disabled.
