That's why I like him so much more than many others. From the soil, fertilizers, the sunlight, etc. Helium 3 extraction? Second, Mars kills stupid people much more quickly than the North Pole. There are plenty of places on Earth that we have not set up shop which are still a trillion times more hospitable than Mars. Does it make it difficult, quite certainly, yes. Definition:First of all.. Mars is a planet. The only reason Antarctica remains an international research park is that there has been so little interest in colonizing it. We’re already killing our own planet. Once we're a viable. If you need a significant amount of manufactured goods in space, it's not hard to imagine how the moon could eventually become viable just because launch costs would be much lower. You should try venturing outside your echo chamber. I think as long as we don't tackle this one we should be at least careful with prospective terraforming projects. well, I know movies and books love the idea, but it remains to be seen if it can be economically extracted or if it even has economic utility. We also do not have a spaceship big enough to carry all the supplies up to Mars and it would cost a million to go to Mars. Outside 'well, there is gravity! How do you get more when you start having kids and living there? We are an apex species, and evolution is not kind to apex species. Downright balmy. The only way we can save humans is to move, and the only place we can move to is Mars. You got yer Moon/Earth, Earth/Sun, Any one object/Any other object. This is going to dissuade no one and will cost him some cachet. We are not responsible for them in any way. These arn't the sort of problems you can hand wave away. What about setting up a mining community? ’”, This shows that we could get the plague on the Red Planet and the colonists be wiped out. Guy's a hack, always was. There is something we still haven’t talked about and that … We would never go to Mars if we took better care of our planet. Spoken like someone who has no idea what it takes to get tenure. Comments owned by the poster. Then if we try to search for life, all we find is our bacteria. Which cuts to the heart of the problem : what exactly is the point of building there? Re:He's not just a blowhard, he's an idiot. And contaminated, both with salts and a number of toxic chemicals. Lots more water. A more robust expression would be that due to the nature of evil, there can be no reliance on Trump. It'll be easier and more useful to colonise the bottom of the ocean than Mars. Your risk of a violent or even terrifying death is extremely high. Goods meant for consumption in space? His knowledge is shallow compared to real scientists like Carl Sagan or Neil Degrasse Tyson. Right now, with our current level of technology and environmental concern, all we'll do is shit all over Mars over a dozen failed colonization attempts before anyone gets one to stick. I couldn't stomach his Netflix show. We are there right now. Time and time again, the pursuit of society-scale technological challenges has proven to be beneficial. A bowtie does not make you an expert on all things scientific. Mars is the first step in exploring the solar system. We will have to live in confinement due to the lack of Oxygen and this can have immense effects on our psychological state. This really is not true. The only reason it's not colonized is that it's an international research park by treaty. It’s a fact that, Many astronauts could suffer from Chronic Boredom. First.. Antarctica? I know you all really like Queen Isabella, but this is all just fantasy. Is it safe to live on Mars? If you get cancer there isn’t yet any way of medical. We should not go to Mars because we do not have the technology to get up to Mars. Moving 1,000 comets seems not too far off from our capabilities today. He was abducted after his tv show in the 90's and replaced with one of the prune people of planet asshole. And there are loads of people living there. Comets would provide both water, oxygen, and momentum (spin). Watch/Read The Martian - terrible movie/book, precisely because you only need look at the calculations done in it to realise the amount of stuff you need for even one human to live any length of time. Probably a lot more than we put in orbit. “We are not going to go to the moon or Mars because of population pressure,” he explained. But import just one comet, and it would provide water for a large earth-sheltered mining base. Nye is inflammatory and alienates a lot of people who might otherwise be interested in science by mocking them. Due to its weaker gravity, the moon would hold onto its atmosphere for tens of thousands of years. Seriously. Plus, we won't damage any ecosystems up there with our human desire to expand and improve. According to Mike Wall, A senior writer, On Space. Whereas if the identify of life on Mars were encoded by other means, there'd be no end of inquiry, no end of revolutionary research — we will have discovered the first truly new form of life. It isn't. Scientist Stephen Hawking claims that humans need to colonize planets in the next 1,000 years to ensure survival. Ergo, I argue Bill Nye is no longer human. And that food doesn't grow out of nothing. The largest volcano in the solar system is on Nye? E=mc^2. So no, "pretty much" everything he does isn't so great. Ask a tribe of tropical hunter-gatherers whether it's possible to live in the Arctic - where t's freezing cold through most of the year, the sun does not shine for months and nothing grows there and they will tell you that no way, you must be crazy to think that it's possible. Shhhhhhhhh: don't tell them that our 3rd rock has been secretly colonized by denizens from the 2nd rock, who have already begun terraforming...errrr...venusforming(?) Bill Nye: We Are Not Going To Live on Mars, Let Alone Turn It Into Earth. Actually "we" already have several different models to choose from - you and I just can't afford to even look at the price tag. Moving 1,000 comets seems not too far off from our capabilities today. What are the risks of dust and sand on Mars? It's difficult to take you seriously when you fail to recognize that Jupiter is a gas planet so as far as Jupiter goes, there is no "on" to be. Sorry.). Yes, and also he's wrong as heck. City scope. Trillions of them. Most of them selfish, short-sighted, etc. And we could most likely be pretty self-sufficient there, since it's got oxygen and a lot of ice to melt for water. Unlike Bill Nye, I think that people would miss having Matt Damon around if we lost him in space. In similar fashion, humans intend to send a manned spacecraft to Mars.The mystery of Mars is always fascinating to humans on earth throughout the history. After that, I have a feeling that a Mars colony is going to be a money loser for a long, long time. The fallacy ad hominem (abusive) is "This guy is evil, therefor his claims are wrong." Water is very common on Mars. The way I had learned science was that most things are considered to be truth, though open to other ideas, and the idea that a new option might come up that brings about a different view. Apple CEO Explains How a Few Billion Dollars From Google Changes His Views on the Company's 'Unsettling' User Data Mining Activities, GitLab's Secret To Success? It's a problem, but one that is probably solvable even with current technology and a lot of engineering [medium.com]. When missions fail, It is often because of a crash landing. Mr. Wizard was a far better role model, and challenged people to think. Why would you bring your spacesuit inside the facility? So, like a lot of earthbound colonization? We should go to Mars. More water to sustain the food year-round than you drink as pure-water yourself. And mostly-self-directed robotic mining equipment no longer sounds like far-fetched SF. If we ever had sufficient technology to get there safely in significant numbers, supply the needed raw materials, manufacture or transport the needed equipment, manipulate biology to deal with various poisons and other environmental factors, etc. We could have built giant underground farms with grow lights, dropped in a nuclear power plant, built an underground infrastructure, etc. I'm sort of with Bill on this one. Glasses, bowtie and/or tweed jacket... and be sure to never say anything, just look at them inscrutably when they speak. U are dumb to think that mars would be good because it is not it really is not good enough for humans to live it just isn't good enough like cmon people it just wouldn't be good like honestly it is not good for people to live because you are stupid! Sure, we can't live in Antarctica permanently. Recently, at a National Geographic Live event in Seattle, we collected quite a few.Luckily for us, Dr. Ray Arvidson, planetary geologist and professor at Washington University in St. Louis, has answers!Dr. During the "Gold Rush" of the mid 1800s the people who made the most money were not the miners. Start making millions of tons of rocket fuel in high orbit and suddenly the Solar system is ours for the taking. It gets NOTHING on Mars except what you bring with you. For once, he's right. Thank you! What else do the penguins eat? No new comments can be posted. Also, we would need to slow down their orbital velocities enough so they are not hitting the moon with Chicxulub-like speed; unless we want to run the risk of several extinction-level events a year. But landing on Mars is probably the most dangerous event of all. I find him annoying as fuck, because he plays such a bad cliche. All the same, I think he's wrong on this one. My reasons are we could find life, we can I find something new,and because the resources mars has. That's one of many many many dozens of examples. We could pollute earth beyond the most dystopian imagination, and it would still be better than living on Mars. The other thing is the resources on the planet, Well all we know is the Iron on the surface, But thats all. So of course we can't. Menaker: Why humans shouldn’t go to Mars. (Hint: You aren't important, no one is). Its taking a huge risk. They fully expect Hyperloops in Mars before 2050. Yeah, you. The sad part is that he's forgotten one of the key rules of being popular, and popularity is his key to influence. Sure, we'll hopefully eventually colonize Mars or other systems, but any reasonable timetable, centuries, is long enough that it is essentially science fiction. Something similar will happen on Mars. Habitats on Mars will obviously require lots of maintenance, so they will produce people who care for their habitats. I'll take Arthur C Clarke for $100, Alex: Re:I'll take Arthur C Clarke for $100, Alex: Bill Nye is forgetting about the Matt Damon factor. Mars is no different. Plus there are the commercial shops you'll see advertised on your favorite science and math YouTube channels. In 1965, the fi rst successful mission was completed when a U.S. spacecraft fl ew by Mars and sent 22 photos back to Earth. The reason he or she might think this is because the safety of our astronauts. Find some valuable resource worth extracting* down there and there will be folks living down there. Just look at how we fund science and space. If we had wanted to, we probably could have. This is a huge project. Look at all the national claims on Antarctica. There also can be more resources for us and probably even new resources. Right now I don't see either. Last but not least, exploration and pushing onward to new vistas is one of our defining traits. We don't know for sure if it is safe or not. Sorry. And there are people down there permanently. on the other side of the solar system. He regularly engages them in very thoughtful and respectful arguments. Since then, extensive space missions have revealed that Mars is rocky, cold, and sterile. That is if humans can even survive long-term in 1/6th gravity. Like populating the Earth by the Golgafrinchams in HHGG, but in reverse. Ahm, it really isn't human nature outside science fiction. … In the second instalment of his two-part feature on human missions to Mars, Dr Alexander Kumar asks whether we should send people to the Red Planet given our poor record managing this one. So sorry dissidents, no revolution from space is coming to foment building your {Libertarian, Socialist, Facist, No Assholes} paradise. A user posted an interesting scenario in a comment on one of NASA’s blogs proposing that the lost civilization of Atlantis could have possibly been on Mars, Therefore we have already destroyed one perfectly suitable planet in the past. The gravity well is significantly lower on the moon. Reaching the moon is definitely possible - we've done it. A statement like that tells be someone doesn't have the slightest clue as to human nature. When the the first Apollo mission landed on the moon they only had 30 seconds of fuel left, 30 SECONDS! Beyond some unknown future economic potential that Mars could provide that the Earth simply could not, once you go past the scientific/adventure angles, there's really only one compelling reason to go to Mars - survival of the species. *Knowledge qualifies. Its not a minor issue - you'd have to fully wash and decontaminate a spacesuit each time it came back into the facility Even a tiny amount of dust that got in would soon make people sick and clog up machinary. Our earth is turning into a big large dump, and if it keeps getting destroyed, eventually there will be no more people on Earth because the air will be so polluted. ’”. Oh, I don't think it's going to take 500 years for us to solve that problem. When the brain is bored then it can do some pretty dumb things when it’s bored because it is seeking stimulus, Or something to do. During the launch, You will be strapped on top of a massive rocket that could explode. That could be really dangerous for an astronaut, And possible can kill them. Are we going to go to colonize Mars in the next 10 years? What we need is to clean up our act here. The Fine Print: The following comments are owned by whoever posted them. There may be riches in the New World, but it will never be worth the time or effort to extract them. The place is covered in chemicals that are hazardous to humans. Even mining the ocean floor would be easier! . Earth produced generations of people who don't care to maintain their life support system because it produced the illusion that it required no maintenance. Also we could take better care for mars and not pollute it like Earth. We are presently a one-planet species, but even if we cleaned up our act and made the Earth a sustainable place to live for the very long term, we're one catastrophic event away from oblivion. The people who *are* in echo chambers are the people who haven't critically evaluated whether sending 7000 troops to the border is a good use of resources, or a stunt to inflame their fears. Some day the global population may not be able to survive off the resources here on Earth. (I'll note that Mars doesn't have either. When somebody says "we" are not "ever" going to do XYZ, it's usually safe to read as, "nobody reading this will be around to see the day when..." I think people generally understand that making predictions about technology 10,000 years from now is impossible, beyond the very basics like speed of light or conservation of energy. At the rate we're going, Antarctica should be a pretty nice place to live within the next 100-200 years. We cannot rule out a common ancestor for Earth life and possible present or past Mars life. That is something that nobody can argue against. Pull your lips off of Bill Nye's asshole for just a moment. If we could get there as fast as we could get to the moon it would be better. It may be a sad day for most of us. Uhh, yeah, no. Look at the *North* Pole. It requires energy. There is no economic argument for mining Mars when the potential of most of the Canadian Shield, the Australian Outback, and Siberia has not been explored . When you talk to economists, anthropologists, people who actually study human nature rather than wax poetic about it, the prospects for a martian colony vanish pretty quickly. It is irresponsible to spend money for scientists to risk their lives to go to Mars. Of course, that might be centuries away, so who gives a fuck? current technology and a lot of engineering, Misleading Virus Video, Pushed By the Trumps, Spreads Online, He Called it a 'Scamdemic' - Then Saw His Family Getting Sick, 'No Clear Evidence' Hydroxychloroquine Works Against COVID-19, Trump Declares National Emergency To Speed Coronavirus Response, Coronavirus: Trump Suspends Travel From Europe To US. Earth’s priorities, such as poverty reduction and education, will lose money. Taste: the same but different. Mars is barred: why we shouldn't go to the red planet – Science Weekly podcast Elon Musk believes we should colonise Mars to ensure the survival of the human race . What could possibly go wrong? Many people believe that there may be life in Mars 'cause of all the tv shows, movies, stories, etc. We shouldn't set up any large colonies yet or we might just leave earth to fend for itself after we've mucked it up, but definitely some small bases to experiment with. Bradbury writes “‘I’ll have to make sandwiches using food grown on Mars. This may seem like complete science fiction, But according to a press release by the Near-Earth Tracking Project “An asteroid large enough to wipe out France hurtled past the Earth at a distance of a half-million miles just days after scientists spotted it. Nobody cares about recycling what you have but the processes are not 100% efficient... you'll lose water every time you use some. At that point we probably w, With stupid people electing stupid politicians there's a great incentive for some people to move to a place which is a technical meritocracy. How many stillbirths are you willing to tolerate, As for success of any permanent colonization attempts? That asteroid could have caused a global catastrophe and there was very little we could have done to change that. We can lose a lot of people and even possible most of the race, If a plague gets on Earth from Mars. No one is going to LIVE on Mars though. Which ones? This whole idea of terraforming Mars, as respectful as I can be, are you guys high? You could veer off course and be hurtled into deep space, Or even towards the sun. Otherwise you won't find folks living anywhere. More like inevitable loss of all the mining jobs on Earth. We also have a large global stockpile of nuclear weapons that could destroy the planet multiple times. The thing is that that the food could be contaminated, Once again Bradbury writes “‘Onions but not onions, Carrots but not carrots. Still coming from Tyson we don't learn anything new about biology. And there's lots of radiation that will have a strong tendency to not-so-slowly kill humans because Mars doesn't have a magnetosphere to protect us, like the Earth does. A giant meteor, nuclear despot, major tectonic event, biological weapon, or an as-yet unknown thing could pound off a big chunk of the population and we are back in the stone age finishing each other off with rocks and sticks. Perhaps we should send him to Antarctica and have him make that place habitable before moving to Mars. Another reader might say that going to mars is a bad ideal. So maybe the whole "global warming" thing is a hoax to scare us into volunteering to get on giant rockets to go live on the colonies in Mars! . A few companies will make a lot of money selling rockets, building materials and supplies. Helium 3? I kinda prefer the kids show host better. The delta-v is different for each, and the closer ones had damn well better be stable or we could Cretaceous our asses. Why? Why We Shouldn’t Go to Marsby Gregg Easterbrook. I do not make these statements lightly as I had at once looked to him as a scientific role model of sorts. That big, cold, lonely lump of rock spinning through the endless void 54.6 million kilometers away? While this is unlikely, It is an interesting allusion of how advanced human civilizations have disappeared in the past. There are substantial challenges to permanently colonizing Mars. During the flight, You could smash into space debris. Sometime soon, something’s gonna happen that will send you tumbling over into a whole new era of human evolution. If we read the literature about serious terraforming and stuff, it's a slow, meticulous process that would take centuries with cost overruns. But nobody wants to live there in a permanent colony. NOT "Hey, let's all move there and start a family.". It's pretty sad that a guy that used to be the poster-child for science education and the limitless possibilities of the future has become essentially nothing more than a strident leftist mouthpiece. Better idea: why not aim the comets at the moon? It is great country full of rocks, swamps and lakes but living there is hard. Does it make the effort not worthwhile? Though robotic spacecraft can do a lot, they lack the critical firsthand experience that can only be captured by humans. Smell: not like it used to be. Mars is one-sixth the siz of Earth. Possibly, If someone gets sick on Mars and we welcome them to Earth they can spread the plague to men and Homo Sapiens can be wiped from the planet. Maybe his definition of 'colony' isn't the same as yours (or his is the definition the newspapers want to hear. "May" != "Will". Every clean room on Earth copes with this minor inconvenience every hour of the day. It is impossible to go to Mars in decades. In rock-hard permafrost. No, we can do with that with robots without even visiting other planets. Now look at Mars - it is worse in every way. Why not? Thinking it'll be soon is crazy but thinking it can't happen is not science. On the other hand, people taking fantasy technology as a given are real problem in science. his comments on this one just get me thinking of the comment in the past that nobody will ever use more than 265k of ram. Why We Can't Send Humans to Mars Yet (And How We'll Fix That) There's been a recent uptick in the idea of a human mission to Mars. If the whole planet is just made out of Iron then yeah Iron, But that’s the only resource we have from mars and nothing else. What is Mars? Terraforming is even farther out. Small groups may be able to survive for limited amounts of time presuming they have a reliable supply of very expensive and heavy equipment coming from Earth all the time. But, hey, if that's what sells to the cheap seats, go for it. There also can be more resources for us and probably even new resources. A 'little imagination' is part of the problem. Why We Should Go to Mars Humans seem to have never stopped exploring the outer space since their inception. How long does it take to travel to Mars? As much as I lament to say this the current Bill Nye that we have now is either a corrupted version or a mere shadow of the guy we had once known. Writer Gregg Easterbrook argues against President George W. Bush’s stated goal of beginning a people-to-Mars space program. Combine the fact that extremophiles exist, that rocks move from planet to planet, and that Mars was wet before Earth was wet, and you have to admit the possibility that life traveled from Mars to Earth as stowaways in the cracks of rocks. Mostly, to get mining and other dangerous ecological practices off the planet we do live on. Except for a few valley towns, First Nations reserves and settlements, and some mining centres, people are measured in 1s and 10s per 100 square km. One thousand comets, and the Moon's low gravity still wouldn't hold the water. People have been going to Antarctica for 200 years now and we still aren't able to live there permanently due to the harsh conditions. Most of them went broke and died mining for gold. Mars is the one planet that people believe is most likely to contain life or has contained life. EARTH DOESN'T NEED A 'BACKUP' PLANET. The only way people will move to Mars is if something is actively driving them away from earth. This Mission To Mars Could Bore You To Death”, She writes “boredom is one of the biggest threats to a manned Mars mission” (Paragraph 3). Physics fundamentals dictate that Mars will never resemble Earth, but it's human nature that people will one day live on it in a self-sustaining manner. It was just too pretentious. Power isn't free either, you need a whole bunch of equipment with a limited lifespan in a very harsh environment (see above) producing an AWFUL lot of power just to keep the temperature up and the lights on. How many people would go to Antarctica if the snow was made of perchlorates. And the difficulty and expense of all those things you mention is orders of magnitude greater than living in the Antarctic, which nobody does. Glasses, bowtie and/or tweed jacket... and be sure to never say anything, just look at them inscrutably when they speak.You'll get tenure in a fucking week. Such as if humans can live there. Mars also has many more reasons for exploration than Mars. People will stop paying taxes if their money funds a … Prove me wrong. I don't want that if we need such amount of money. Could be. You'll need regular water sent to you by Earth or someone, or a way to generate it en-masse that we don't really have yet. Heating something from -153 to room temperature is the same energy as boiling it twice over. Give us a hundred years and maybe we could grow crops in Antarctica. Crazy 'ol Elon Musk think we're going to establish colonies there in the next 30 years! You know there's loads of fish there, yes? We would have to cut health-care benefits, education spending, other important programs, or even raising taxes … He says Nasa shouldn't be aiming to send manned missions to Mars Anders, 85, said he's a "big supporter" of the "remarkable" unmanned programmes, "mainly because they're much cheaper". You don't get people to understand climate change by making them feel stupid or insulting religion, according to another science, i.e. There are resources. Want to read Slashdot from your mobile device? You can no more "live on Mars" than you can "live on the Antarctic", or the bottom of the ocean... you need a lot of equipment and a ton of support and hope like hell that nothing goes wrong, and do it for short trips, with people willing to risk their lives and accept an awful lot of compromise. In the story “Dark They Were, And Golden-Eyed” Ray Bradbury wrote, “‘Chances are a plague did this town in, Sir. What benefit does building industrial infrastructure so far out,a way from any potential markets, have? And last but not least, It probably costs more to send a small ship to or (theoretically) from Mars than the combined cost of all activity on the North pole throughout human history. Can you mine in Antarctica, without the international community stopping you? In fact, however, Trump is not simply evil, but a selfish moronic blowhard asshole who is known to lie over even easily disproved matters. Think of him as a science teacher for adults, very science illiterate adults. You mean like the time he went all-in-for with 'gender identity' and pseudoscience surrounding it? By: Julie Brewer Better Programs Facts About Mars There might be water on Mars, but no one is sure. Its just frozen. It would be pointless to send some guys to mars for just a few hours like they did with Apollo. There may be more comments in this discussion. Plenty of empty deserts on Earth where virtually nobody's pushing onward to new vistas, Antarctica included. Going to mars is worth the risk. Submission: Bill Nye: We are not going to live on Mars, let alone turn it into Earth, 'Sending Astronauts To Mars Would be Stupid', Legendary Mathematician Sir Michael Atiyah Dies at Age 89. Artificial gravity so that people can survive the two month flight isn't too difficult - a long. Instead, we need to have a "backup" in case something bad happens, kind of like drives on a file. People will go. I'm with the OP. For example, see multitudes of mining towns and interior ports that have come and gone. Will we go there to live once we have mastered genetic engineering to adapt to any environment? (Go ahead and down rank me. NASA even said “The one thing we know basically what Mars is made of is Iron”. At least, not relatively pure water ice, not mixed with perchlorates.).
