😍🌍😱⠀
This futuristic city could be the Terraformed Mars one day.⠀
⠀
I believe in a future, where humans have managed to learn how to Terraform an entire planet. 🌴⠀
⠀
Today, most people think this will be impossible, but that is why many people fail at doing other things as well. Before doing anything, they determine that it is impossible. So they don't even try. 😩⠀
⠀
Once we set foot on Mars, the limits are only up to us. We could engineer an entire atmosphere to be breathable, even if the planet's gravity is too low. Maybe we will create some artificial (currently not invented) technology, that prevents gases from escaping to space. Maybe it will be a new technology similar to SpaceX Starlink, but instead of beaming internet down to the surface, its task will be to create a special field that traps gases inside. 🌧️⠀
⠀
Wouldn't that be cool? I think it would be amazing to live in a future where developing tech like these are our goals. 🛰️⠀
⠀
Do you think something similar will be possible? 💬⠀

🌱Growing crops on Mars will be an extraordinary challenge. Our future colonists will need to find a way to capture and use the sunlight, which is around 40% on Mars than what it is on Earth.⠀
⠀
🌻We will need to be able to engineer an atmosphere that is optimal for growing all kinds of plants, we need to find the right fertilizer and the best soil we can.⠀
⠀
🦋But the upside we can win is worth it. We will be able to become a self-sustaining civilization on Mars, because we will not depend on Earth for food supplies.⠀
⠀
🌍And at the same time we will be saving Earth, because we will learn much effective ways to grow food with limited resources. This could ease our climate, and enable us to serve more people on the world with fresh food.⠀

Deimos is suspected to have water ice on it, but as of now, there is no exact data about this. Some satellites, and even our rovers took a few pictures of it, but those were not enough to figure out potential water sources. ❄️⠀⠀
-⠀⠀
But Deimos is still considered to be one of the best resources for water for future human exploration missions. Water is undoubtedly the most valuable resource for humans, plants, life support systems and it is necessary to produce rocket propellant.🚀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀
As Deimos has low gravity and is way out of Mars' or Earth's gravity well, it would require less fuel to transfer water from Deimos to Mars, to the Moon or even to LEO, rather than to transfer it from the surface of Earth.⠀⠀
-⠀⠀
Building water extractors on Deimos would be probably a good idea for the future. Here are some @marstronauts inspecting a water extractor on Deimos. Art created by Maciej Rebisz.⠀⠀
-⠀⠀
What do you think about this concept? Would you drink Deimosian water?⠀

Don’t play it SAFE!

SAFE = Stay Average ForEver (from @thechrisdo)

Get out of your COMFORT ZONE! It is not where you learn new things and grow.

I am also afraid. Afraid of not following a clearly defined career path.

Getting through medical school and starting residency and working at a hospital was the predefined way for me.

Time to wrap my head around the fact that I will not be a regular doctor. I may not even be a space doctor. I may not be what I want to be.

But I will become what I NEED to become. I may be an entrepreneur. But that is SCARY.

It is scary, to let go of the safety net of my well defined medical career, and do something BOLD, something RISKY, something I haven’t done BEFORE.

But it’s gonna be fun. It is an adventure, and I want all of you guys to be a part of it!

I have done scary things in the last half year, but I am getting comfortable being OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE.

Pretty weird!

Do you guys play it SAFE? AVERAGE? Astronauts are not average people, they are one of the most talented, knowledgeable, skilled and hard working people I know. If you want to be an astronaut, you need to learn how to be comfortable in FEAR.

SPACE scares me. That’s why I need to do something about it!

🚀#10YearChallenge for @aispacefactory? 😉⠀
⠀
TERA (left) and MARSHA (right) will be 3D printed habitats built by the winner of the NASA 3D Printed Habitat Challenge, @aispacefactory!

Which one do you prefer? Comment TERA or MARSHA below!

AI SpaceFactory is a startup doing amazing work to enable humans to live on other worlds. Here's an interesting quote from an interview between @aispacefactory CEO @david_malott and @space.bandits 👇⠀
⠀
"The biggest obstacle to building in space is that construction materials are extremely expensive to launch. At a cost of $100 million to land a 5-ton lunar payload, an average Earth home weighing 50-tons would cost one billion dollars and require 10 roundtrips to the Moon to deliver. For the same cost, we could land 50 robotic rovers and build a lunar village—if we learn to harvest materials from the surface."⠀
⠀
💬Excited? You can follow their progress on Instagram @aispacefactory, and watch them build TERA (TERestrial Analogue) later this year! 👏 You may also be able to try living in TERA, so make sure to check them out to learn HOW! 😍⠀

Do you remember when the first Starhopper was finished and the tragedy that happened to it?⠀
-⠀
Elon Musk shared the actual image of the StarHopper on Twitter. This was meant to be just a test vehicle, and would never go to space, just like the F9 Grasshopper was.⠀⠀
-⠀
SpaceX has made significant progress since the fall of Starhopper, they did the first hop tests, and they are looking to build the full Starhopper again, will be finished soon.⠀
-⠀
This is the start of something big, and due to the power of social media, we can be a part of it. 🙏 The end of this development will be a vehicle capable of:⠀⠀
1) launching 100 people to Mars⠀⠀
2) launching 150 tonnes to LEO (250 tonnes if expendable)⠀⠀
3) refuel in orbit⠀⠀
4) if refuelled, transport 150 tonnes to Mars⠀⠀
5) land on any body using aerobraking and/or retro-propulsion⠀⠀
6) probably bunch of other things ¯\_(ツ)_/¯⠀⠀
-⠀⠀
Would you like to ride it? I definitely would! 😍⠀⠀

Going underground is one way to protect cities from hazards we can't yet control. ☣️⠀
⠀
Once our technology improves, we can bravely go to the surface. ⠀
⠀
But for the first settlements, going underground may not be an option. Boring, or finding caves and living in them requires many more tools than building on the surface, but comes with higher risk for inhabitants as well. 💥⠀
⠀
Robust structures like MARSHA from the NASA 3D Printed Habitat Challenge Winner @aispacefactory could host the first explorers on Mars. They will also build a similar habitat on Earth called TERA, and you will be able to visit it soon! Just check out @aispacefactory for updates! 😉⠀

Amazing post from @space.bandits!⠀
⠀
🚀🤔 Are these timelines realistic? 👇⠀
⠀
1️⃣ The first Martian base is set up with power and other essentials. Population: a few hundred.⠀
⠀
2️⃣ Multiple bases and an early colony begins to form. Population: up to 10,000⠀
⠀
3️⃣ A full-fledged self-sustaining colony with multiple cities. Population: up to 100,000⠀
⠀
4️⃣ Terraformed Mars with huge cities and seas covering large parts of the planet. Population: a few million?⠀
⠀
💬 What do you think? Tell me why you think each step will be difficult to do in this timeframe and let's discuss some solutions! 👇⠀

Amazing post from @space.bandits !⠀ ⠀ 🚀🤔 Are these timelines realistic? 👇⠀ ⠀ 1️⃣ The first Martian base is set up with power and other essentials. Population: a few hundred.⠀ ⠀ 2️⃣ Multiple bases and an early colony begins to form. Population: up to 10,000⠀ ⠀ 3️⃣ A full-fledged self-sustaining colony with multiple cities. Population: up to 100,000⠀ ⠀ 4️⃣ Terraformed Mars with huge cities and seas covering large parts of the planet. Population: a few million?⠀ ⠀ 💬 What do you think? Tell me why you think each step will be difficult to do in this timeframe and let's discuss some solutions! 👇⠀ ⠀ Credits: NatGeo (MARS), SpaceX, @maxrymsha , Star Citizen (via @marstronauts )⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #spaceexploration #mars #martian #spacetravel #nasa #spacex #rocketscience #elonmusk #redplanet #solarsystem #spaceshuttle #spacephotos #exploration #astronaut #astronauts #blueorigin #scifidaily #cosmos #spacefacts #interstellar #science #spaceexplorer #spacestation
