RE: Have scientists just found proof of life on Mars?

in STEMGeeks5 months ago

Imagine what it could lead to if that were plant life perhaps we could use that to find ways to fertilise desert and farm in harsh conditions! I’m jusy speculating here of what could be extracted from this possibility

I did see them growing I think it was cotton on the moon to help prove the use case of harvesting outside earths atmosphere

I think with the improvement of things like AI and machine learning and IOT we could speed up a lot of these things elimate all the time wasted on bad outcomes and get to improvements faster

The next 100 years if we are still around and didn’t blow ourselves up yet will certainly be a space race of note

Sort:  

Fully, the space race will determine the future leaders of the planet. To the moon...of Mars.

Interesting thought

Progress in space exploration would definitely have profound effects on the culture and politics of those left behind on Earth

I often wonder if sometime in the future, when humanity has established permanent settlements beyond Earth's protective atmosphere (and ionosphere, etc) and is constantly made aware of, just how intensely, ruthlessly hostile "space" is to the human organism, if then there would be some mass political movement to conserve the Earth, turning it into like a sanctuary for the solar system

Like a mass tempering of human arrogance in the face of just how fragile we are

Because it's just so much damn easier to be alive on Earth. The environment doesn't have to be engineered, manufactured and maintained around-the-clock to support life...

Well said, we already have a perfect place to live - our home planet. Let's preserve it for posterity.

Yeah! The convergence of these different technologies is already underway

Your comment reminded me of the Evolved Antenna
