Climate change and population growth direct our civilization to migrate to other planets, warn NASA scientists. The human population will need at least three planets to survive, said Dennis Bushnell, chief scientist from the Langley Research Center of NASA. “The whole ecosystem is crashing. Essentially, we are too many out there. With Asians who are now billions, we will need three other planets.” The adjustment of Mars to human environmental conditions will take about 120 years, argues Bushnell, but until then we will need other planets to survive.

Lunar Space Elevator Is Going to Be Built by 2020!

By | March 14th, 2014|Categories: Futurism & Technology, Uncommon Science, Universe|Tags: , |

Space “elevator” is one of the oldest dreams of science fiction, but the possibility of actual construction has been considered for years as it will greatly facilitate the activity in space. In the case of LiftPort Group (Seattle), such a concept is considered for transporting goods to and from the Moon. According to a report at, such a program should be built using the existing technology and based on simple principles. The basic idea is a “vehicle” which will move up and down on a wire connected to the surface of the Moon, making landings soft and smooth. In particular, the vision of LiftPort Group includes the missile launch from Earth in a special space station (PicoGravity Laboratory) located in a […]

The Other Side of Mars Colonization: Potential Dangers of the Red Planet

By | February 20th, 2014|Categories: Uncommon Science, Universe|Tags: , , |

As the prospect of a permanent colony on Mars is getting closer with every new press release from the Mars One project, it probably makes sense to remember that any person who will move permanently to Mars will most likely die untimely and painful death. Here are some things that are most likely to cause it (all kinds of technical problems are excluded from consideration): First of all, the Mars colonists will be subjected toradiation before having set foot on the threshold of their new home. Technically, the radiation level […]

‘Humanity Must Colonize Other Planets to Survive’

By | November 23rd, 2013|Categories: Futurism & Technology, Uncommon Science, Universe|Tags: , , , , , |

Technology that allows us to reach the nearest planets is already in our hands, and a former astronaut Jeff Hoffman thinks that we must colonize other planets for the sake of our long-term survival. Hoffman is one of about five hundred people who lived through the unique experience of seeing Earth from its orbit. Imagine that being in space, you can pull your hand and completely close our planet – so that all our knowledge, the whole humanity, and every person who has ever lived on Earth, simply disappear. This very clearly shows how vulnerable we are. That is why, according to Hoffman, […]
