SPACE TRAVEL: HOW CLOSE ARE WE TO TRAVELING

astronomy, atmosphere, earth

“When will we go?”


through space and time

There will come a day where we as a species will be able to just casually travel to space. Sounds far-fetched now, but in the future the opportunity could open up. Entrepreneur Elon Musk shot a car into space and former CEO and founder of Virgin Mobile Richard Branson has had plans for years of creating a means for people to go outside of Earth’s atmosphere. But the reason for this type of travel being derailed is because of government intervention. There are way too many safety precautions that are taken into consideration before traveling into space.

cost

Before I mention that Branson wanted to take some people into space. But the price tag for those initial people would be very hefty. And that is another reason why the space travel could take a lot of time to accomplish. Trying to make sure that the cost to travel were together would be steep. Currently our government spends billions to go into space. Now as the technology becomes better, then you will see more and more travels into space. But the danger and the cost are the two factors keeping space travel from happening. But what are the other reasons for space travel being put on hold?

destination?

Once you leave Earth’s atmosphere you are now in space. But the question still lingers, “Where are we going to go?” There is only on place you can travel and come back to Earth safely; the Moon. Traveling to Mars is a one trip journey. And that is because the body cannot readjust back on Earth after dealing with the pressures of Mars. And there is nothing interesting about traveling to the Moon. We have been there plenty of times, and nothing interesting is really going to transpire from a journey to the Moon. And anything beyond that point is far too dangerous. But there are Earth like planets, but they are far. Meaning developing better technology; easier said than done.

science

Wanting to go far beyond the Earth to other Earth like planets will means traveling at the speed of light. Otherwise taking a ride a few hundred million, billion, or even trillions of miles. So in other words it’s not going to happen. But there was a mini satellite that took pictures of Saturn. But what happens when we are truly able to stretch our minds to reach certain speeds and travel greater distances. Then it won’t seem that crazy. And then there will eventually come a time where traveling to the Moon is almost comedic.

WHERE ARE YOU TAKING US: WHERE IS THE SUN GOING AS WE ARE ORBITING IT

“Ever wonder where we’re going?”


ORBITING IN SPACE

As the Sun travels through space, the eight planets are pulled toward it. You have the twos solar systems: the inner solar system and the outer solar system. The inner consists of Mercury, Venus, and Earth; and the outer solar system comprises of Jupiter, Saturn,Neptune, and Uranus. Now as these planets are being pulled toward the Sun, the Sun is traveling the space at 45,000 mils per hour. Scientist has speculated that the Sun is moving through space toward Lamda Herculis, which is a constellation about 370 light years away. But with absolute certainty, where are we going as we shoot through the cosmos.

LITTLE DO WE KNOW

As we shoot through the solar system being pulled by gravitational forces toward the sun, we know nothing walking about our daily lives on Earth. Scientist can speculate all they want, but we don’t know for certain what will happen in space. For all we know, the Sun could be taking us toward something catastrophic that could lead to our demise. Now granted, scientist have technology where we can see a lot before it happens. But my issue is that there is nothing you can do to stop it. Just knowing is not good enough, if there is nothing you can do. On Earth we fight over politics and other social issues, but there is something lurking above us, that could be our demise. The video below I found on YouTube: MN MKTstyle Published on Nov 7, 2014.

TIME TO VENTURE OUT

We have been hearing for some time now, that maybe it’s time for humans to venture out and start looking for other planets to inhabit. Now, that is easier said than done, considering the closest planet that is Earth like can’t be reached by today’s technology. Physicist Stephen Hawking speculated that humans have really only the next 100 years before we really start running out of resources here on Earth. And that means we start to fall apart after that point. But that is only a theory because who knows what will happen over the next 100 years. Think back 100 years from where we are now. You look back at the year 1918, then now. View the photos below at what has changed over 100 years, and let’s see if 100 years from now will we leave Earth for Earth-like life.
