Science: Elon Musk’s Plans For Humans Moving From Earth To Mars Have Likely Been Thwarted (Video)

Dang it.

Musk put the numbers, plans, presentations, and MONEY on it. I was thinking futuristic ‘Martians’ would be humans – ‘terrans’ if you want to speak ‘Star Trek’ about it – in the not-so-distant future. But now we have proof of water on Mars, meaning the possibility of LIFE. And it turns out that we already have a ‘flavor’ of Trek’s prime directive (e.g. planetary protection rules) already in place… and blocking any Space X effort to terraform the Red Planet for human inhabitance. That, and the realization that what it’d take to give Mars an atmosphere is all but impossible.

Watch the vid above and follow the link below to read up.

(But hey, upside: Life on Mars already! Maybe…)

Mars: To Boldly Go Where No Human Has Gone Before, Space X Will Need To Get A Lander Up And The Cost Of Relocating To Mars Down (Video)

Wow, so SpaceX is launching its manned Mars lander in 2020? Wow. The goal of ‘making humans a multi-planetary species’ seems kind of far out, and that is the point. Mars is the next planet over, sure, but it ain’t just “next door.” It is far out there.

SpaceX Founder, CEO, and Lead Designer Elon Musk will discuss the long-term technical challenges that need to be solved to support the creation of a permanent, self-sustaining human presence on Mars. The technical presentation will focus on potential architectures for sustaining humans on the Red Planet that industry, government and the scientific community can collaborate on in the years ahead.

Interesting. Musk is the first big wig in space matters to address why we are trying to just go back to the moon… It is not a good candidate for terraforming (e.g. we cannot make an Earth-like planet of it). Watch the presentation above and read a bit more below.

Science: How Colonizing Mars Could Spark New Kind Of Human Evolution (Video)

So, we talk about going to Mars. And leave it to futurists like Elon Musk, we talk about STAYING and establishing human life there. But watching this video though… Colonizing Mars means former “Earthlings” become real-life “Martians”… and that is a different kind of human; or it least it most likely would be.

If humans ever successfully colonize Mars, how would their biology change? An evolutionary biologist at Rice University and author of book “Future Humans: Inside the Science of Our Continuing Evolution,” Scott Solomon, explains how humans might evolve on Mars and what significance that could have for humans left on Earth.
