Future Space Technology, Traveling and Colonization

| October 29, 2017

This article is about Future Space Technology, traveling, and colonization. In the near future NASA and JPL will wind down their operations as the space tourism industry is just starting to wind up. In fact, there have already been several multi-millionaire space tourists to fly in a Soviet Soyuz spaceship to the International Space Station (ISS) and back. Over the past decade, this has just been the started.

Taking about Importance of Space Exploration the concepts of “discovery” and “exploration” are frequently found throughout space literature, in the new Vision for Space Exploration, billed as A Renewed Spirit of Discovery enunciated by President Bush in January 2004. The same concepts are emphasized in the Aldridge Commission’s Report on the Implementation of United States Space Exploration Policy, titled A Journey to Inspire, Innovate and Discover. The question “should we explore” must be seen in deep historical context, not in the context of present-day politics or whims.

Space exploration involves great economic investment, massive risks, and seemingly impossible objectives. So why should we commit ourselves to it? Because it is beneficial for the world in a hasty manner.

Scott Gaudi is tired of the fighting. An astronomer at Ohio State University in Columbus, he specializes in the notoriously fractious field of exoplanet research, in which battles have included bitter fights over data access and epic rifts between teams searching for planets outside our Solar System.

Future Space Technology, Traveling and Colonization

Within the next 1 or 2 years, space tourists will be going into Low Earth Orbit (LEO) for around $90,000 to $250,000 per ride.

Importance of Space Exploration

Space exploration is important not only to humanity’s curiosity of the great beyond, but it is also important for the future of the earth and all of us living on it. So here are the reasons why space exploration is important for the world.

Promote Science Education
The Apollo missions inspired a whole generation of kids who wanted to grow up to be astronauts, rocket scientists, and engineers. We all know that science education has been slightly lacking in the United States as of late.

NASA Environmental Research
You would think that the guys who burn a million pounds of rocket fuel wouldn’t be the most environmentally minded people in the world, or out of the world as it may be. However, most people don’t know that NASA does a lot of good environmental research while they are up there looking down at all of us

Earth Over Population
The current earth population is almost 6.8 billion people. It is arguably beyond the carrying capacity of the earth already. The big dream is space colonization. We need somewhere to put all these people, or we all might end up living in skyscrapers, see all animal’s habitats destroyed, and smog up the air beyond what is breathable

Earth Environment Preservation
We are burning through the earth’s natural resources pretty quickly. Out in space there are virtually unlimited resources. It is all just a matter of collecting it and bringing it back, which granted will not be an easy task. Still it is virtually unlimited natural resources. There will be no more excuses for hiking up prices on barrels of oil. (Although hopefully we will have moved far beyond oil by then).

Future of Human Specie
If we put ourselves into perspective, from space earth is really small. From space, earth is really fragile. Sometimes I think it would be a good thing to put our place in the universe into perspective. I don’t go into your house light up a story, start pulling up your carpet, kick down your door, and then kill your cat. Yet, we as the human species have been doing that to our own home the earth for quite a while now. If we start seeing how small and fragile we are out there floating in space, maybe, just maybe we will not be so prone to abusing our one true home.

Habitable Planet Hunting

The habitable zone is the distance at which a rocky planet could support liquid water on its surface. NASA says its planet-hunting telescope has found 10 new planets outside our solar system that are likely the right size and temperature to potentially have life on them. NASA says several of the 10 new potentially habitable planets circle stars similar in size to our sun.

Future Space Traveling

Future space travel by this time will also include trips to the Moon as the Lunar X-Prize will have chosen a winner by then and moderately expensive trips will have begun. Small-scale colonization will be taking place. Several space hotels will be in orbit. Future spacecraft will become more powerful, more capable of detecting danger in space and more adept at maneuvering to avoid those dangers. Future space missions will also test weaponry in space in case it is needed for aggressors, foreign or domestic.

Space Colonization

Space colonization (also called space settlement or extraterrestrial colonization) is a permanent human habitation of beyond planet Earth. It is a major theme in science fiction, as well as a long-term goal of various national space programs. Many people think of space colonies on the Moon or Mars, but others argue that the first colonies will be in orbit.

Several design groups at NASA and elsewhere have examined orbital colony feasibility. To justify the colonization of space, supporters have given a variety of reasons, including survival of the human species (in case of nuclear warfare or other planetary catastrophes), protection of Earth’s environment, access to additional natural resources, and the spreading of life in the universe.
