We humans are a very curious, adventurous species, and movement is one of the characteristics that makes us feel happy. So, freedom is our fundamental human right, and we are not very good at staying in one place. We love to travel across continents in ships, aeroplanes, and now the time has come for us to travel in rockets.
Because we’re constantly on the lookout for the next advanced trip and the extreme and incredible places we’ve been to over the past hundred years. Like the south pole of the world, the bottom of the ocean in a submarine, flying through the air in airships, but another great journey that we are now eager to go on is to Mars. It’s no surprise from history that Star Trek was the first science fiction story to take over the mainstream consciousness.
In the 60s a group of brave space adventurers traveled in an amazing spaceship that allowed them to boldly go where no one had gone before. So, this is not the first time humans would want to go behind planet Earth, but this time, we want to do it again and again. Although we are not there yet, SpaceX and Elon Musk have assured us that we will not only live on Earth, but one day, we humans will occupy Mars, we will live on Mars like our second home.
And develop it like a computerized world, powered by the full power of technology. We’re not there yet, but SpaceX and Elon have a plan. How will SpaceX land humans on Mars? How is the trip going to be? Let’s see all this in today’s video. You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great – and that’s what being an astronautic civilization is about.
This is Elon’s speech to ignite our belief that one day, we humans will own Mars. In 2016, the founder of SpaceX revealed his big plan to establish a metropolis on Mars. At the time, Musk hoped to visit our neighboring planet as soon as 2024.
Since then, the company has made great strides in building its Mars rocket, but not enough to meet the original deadline. Elon Musk said on Twitter that he is now confident that humans will first set foot on Mars in 2029. It will mark the 60th anniversary of the first lunar landing in 1969. Naturally, a trip to Mars requires preparation. Mars and Earth move away from each other while orbiting the Sun and then come closer to each other.
It is necessary to launch within a specific period of time to take advantage of the time when the distance between the two planets is reduced. The ideal Mars launch windows for this decade are late this year, late 2024, late 2026 and early 2029. It appears that Musk’s initial goals may have been unnecessarily ambitious.
If that target date moves forward into the 2030s, it will be closer to the timeframe that NASA has historically set for launching the first men to Mars. SpaceX will take humans to Mars through 4 critical phases: In Phase 1: Starship will launch from Starbase with a super heavy booster and once the booster reaches orbit, it will separate itself from the ship and return to Earth. Will come, and drown in the middle.
chopstick weapon, where it would be caught in mid-air and prepared for future reuse. In Phase 2; The Starship will enter Earth orbit, while the refilling tanker launches to rendezvous with the ship in orbit, this tanker will use the vehicle to refill the Starship in orbit before it speeds to Mars. This refilling process would enable transport weighing 100 tons to Mars.
After the tanker refills the starship, it will return to Earth and prepare for another similar voyage. Starship, on the other hand, continues its journey beyond low Earth orbit to Mars. and in step 4; The Starship will enter the Martian atmosphere at a speed of 7.5 kilometers per second, and will be reduced aerodynamically, now the heat shield will do the most incredible work by protecting the body of the Starship from the intense heat that will cause a fire around it during re-entry.
Now man will land on Mars, but what next? The first humans to land on Mars will first begin extracting more biological samples from the Red Planet, studying these samples to determine how to build structures on Mars. The first is to know the geological composition of the soil of Mars. Therefore, more will be done to test the hardness of the Martian soil before deciding whether to deploy construction equipment such as cranes, bulldozers, excavators, and land equipment.
Which would start making enclosed cabinets to protect humans from toxins. Radiation on Mars. It is also very important to know that the atmosphere of Mars is mainly composed of carbon dioxide, it does not exist, due to the atmospheric gas on Mars there is not much to work with. Furthermore, there is little or no oxygen for humans to breathe. And there’s nothing in the Martian atmosphere to protect you from cosmic radiation.
As in the Earth’s atmosphere, which protects our lives from the intense radiation of the Sun, and some of the space radioactive waves that prove dangerous to our health, the Earth’s atmosphere blocks all the harmful radiation that kills us. Is. Were Mars’ atmosphere much thinner than Earth’s and its gravitational pull about one-third as strong, humans would be very vulnerable when exposed to the gravity of Mars, which is even smaller than Earth’s.
There are also these huge dust storms that can cover the whole of Mars after some time, and dusty events happen all the time. Mars’ atmosphere is thinner than Earth’s, thus even in a dust storm, the wind would only be blowing at about 60 kilometers per hour.
Dust on Mars would be a serious concern in several ways. Our equipment must be securely sealed to prevent dust from seeping in and damaging things. Keeping the solar panels clean in the dusty atmosphere of Mars would also be a major task. In general, dust storms would make our stay on Mars so uncomfortable.
But why Mars? Why have SpaceX and Elon Musk chosen to send humans to Mars? The quick answer is that Mars is one of Earth’s closest habitable neighbors, located at an average distance of 140 million miles, Mars still receives a good amount of sunlight because it is almost as far from the Sun as Earth. Is. This is half way. Although it’s cold, we can make it hot. Since the atmosphere of Mars consists mostly of carbon dioxide with traces of nitrogen, argon and other elements.
We can grow plants there by just compressing the gas and convert them into manure. Since Mars’ gravity is about 38% that of Earth, you can carry larger objects and move faster. When the colonization phase begins, SpaceX plans to launch an average of three Starships per day to meet its goal of carrying one million passengers to Mars by 2050.
SpaceX initially plans to actively maintain a fleet of 1,000 Starships traveling to Mars every day. year – and this would also involve transporting at least 100 megatons of material to Mars. Each ship carrying about 100 passengers would carry about 100,000 people to Mars per year. SpaceX proposes that they will begin building a high-capacity transportation infrastructure, which will include transportation of materials and equipment to Mars.
and would lay the Martian ground for a permanent outpost, and also develop rapid turn around landing mounts for landing and launching Starships. After that, SpaceX will set up refining systems and stations for local production of rocket fuel on Mars. The process of collection of useful material found on Mars will be done by using abundant resources like frozen water and other essential minerals which will be useful for better industrialization on Mars.
After SpaceX successfully establishes a permanent and sustainable presence on Mars, the Mars colonization phase will begin. It involves hundreds and thousands of people, including children and families, heading to the Red Planet and exploiting Mara’s natural resources. And at this point man would have achieved his goal of becoming a multiplanar species.
Elon Musk has already proposed that there will be no strict policies or governance on Mars that will curb the freedom of the people, but definitely Mars will have its own crypto currency like Dogecoin. All of this will happen because a man known as Elon Musk has a crazy plan to colonize Mars and fight to make it our reality.
Would you like to go to Mars someday? Meanwhile, Elon Musk is getting everything ready, even got an FAA license to launch the first orbital flight, click on the video to learn more and maybe find out what you need to go to Mars. What do I need when can I get my ticket?
