NASA shares its vision for future human space exploration in a new sci-fi video.
The minute-long ‘Vision of the Future’ short shows holiday destinations booked through the exoplanet travel bureaus, such as Moon, and Mars.
Venus has a futuristic observation deck—it looks like an ice cream cone with a large glass on top—while one of Saturn’s moons, Enceladus, is orbited by a metal bubble, which has a family of rings. looks at the planet.
Another astronaut kayaks on Titan, one of Saturn’s other moons, and skydives into yet another exoplanet HD 40307G, which was discovered to be a potential ‘super-Earth’ that could have a pro-life climate and even water.
The video was inspired by a series of travel posters created by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, in which the agency shared a series of visuals showing the before and after of the green screen technology.
Human exploration of other planets has become a near reality with the development of private space travel, although many have criticized billionaires for failing to help those struggling on Earth or combat climate change.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has said he plans to send the first spacecraft to Mars by 2022, with humans to follow in the next four to six years.
“I would say six years from now, highly confident [that humans will travel to Mars]. If we get lucky, maybe four years, and then we will try and send a driverless vehicle in two years,” he said in December 2020.
“I’m mostly concerned with developing technology that would enable a lot of people to go to Mars and make life multi-planetary, have a base on the Moon, have a city on Mars, and I think it It is important that we try to have a self-sustaining city on Mars as soon as possible.”
The billionaire believes that terraforming – destroying the planet with nuclear weapons at its poles to melt ice caps and induce accelerated warming – would be a key component to living on other planets.
“Life in the first glass domes. Eventually, like Earth, terraformed to support life,” he said.
However, the road to the other world will not be easy. “A group of people will probably die in the beginning”, he said bluntly in an interview in April 2021. Even if humans reach Mars, the battle between these corporations and Earth governments to develop the laws of Mars will be intense, and is unlikely to be resolved quickly.
