We are running out of space, and the only places to go to are other worlds within the next 100 years, he warned, we need to colonize mars and other planets if we don't, we may not if we're going to make his timeline for building new civilizations before we perish, here's what we need to do, he said. As far as we know, we humans are the only intelligent life in the universe like the dino eggs, we could be invaluable isn't it our responsibility to spread out, in case some meteor metaphorically stomps on us that's the argument guys like elon musk are putting forward for why we need to colonize mars: as.

Why are we colonizing mars i've heard a variety of arguments like extra living space, more resources, etc but those aren't the real reasons we have plenty of resources on earth and plenty of living space living space isn't much a problem, growing space is, since it takes a lot of land to grow enough food for a human. We can easily send robots to mars, because their feelings don't get hurt if you forget to pack the oxygen and food but people are a different well, animal, altogether humans are heavy humans need to carry little bubbles of the earth ecosystem with them everywhere they go humans need room to. Is mars really the best place for humans to settle some scientists, like amanda hendrix, the american planetary scientist, thinks it's not, and we should be looking somewhere else and colonize titan, saturn's largest moon, instead watch the video.
Next, we move into the proving ground, conducting a series of missions near the moon -- we call it cislunar space -- that will test the capabilities we will need to live and work at mars astronauts on the space station are only hours away from earth, but the proving ground is days away, a natural stepping. “it is really because we have an innate desire to explore” amanda hendrix, a senior scientist at the planetary science institute, shares a similar opinion on the prospect of a permanent martian settlement “i think it makes sense to go to mars with humans to test technologies and to do scientific experiments. Elon musk, the founder of spacex, has unveiled a new design for a 100% reusable rocket and spaceship to colonize mars we could assemble space exploration capabilities in orbit [around earth] and launch a mission to mars from there, porterfield said, adding that the first crewed martian missions will.

Editor's note: in 1897, southern england was invaded by martians or rather that was the plot of h g wells's now-classic novel the war of the worlds those of us on earth have long been fascinated by what we might find on the red planet could humans travel there and survive this month, historian lisa rand ruth. History has a tendency to repeat itself even if we do successfully colonize another planet, we'll still have to solve all the problems that earth currently faces our technologies are just as likely to destroy the environment on other planets, and epidemics and asteroids could wipe out a martian settlement much.
When combined, they can encode useful cellular functions, like degradation pathways or chemical synthesis using synbio we can simply develop biological solutions for many of the problems our astronauts will need to solve on mars since engineered bacteria are microscopic and can rapidly propagate. Of course, we'd have to get to mars in the first place to do so, first we need to consider the basic problem of radiation in the form of cosmic rays and solar activity such high-velocity particles ravage human cells, and the most violent among them can pass through the hull of a spacecraft we don't know yet.
If humans are ever to colonize mars, it will take billions of dollars, new technologies yet to be invented and a whole lot of astronaut elbow grease. 5 undeniable reasons humans need to colonize mars — even though it's going to cost billions jessica orwig 50th anniversary that brings us to the first reason humans must colonize mars: if we're going to do that, we'll most likely have to dig much deeper than nasa's rovers can the theory there is.
