But Petranex does not exclude the fact that the destruction of humanity can be the work of the people themselves. The author and scientist admit that people are unique beings – the only ones that have developed up to now and are capable of destroying themselves. "It can also be atomic karst, as well as the Marburg resource or Ebola that kills everyone on Earth," Petranex.
On the way to Mars – the mission is more important than human life
When asked if the thought of conquering the Red Planet is a human being, namely the redemption of mankind or the person is a mission, that is, the mission is important for a lost life on the way to Mars, Petranex without hesitation answers that the mission itself is more important than At the same time, people add that this issue is always a dilemma in space exploration research.
"For example, the Russians first blinked into the orbits of people in space because they were prepared to assume a much greater risk than the United States, who were all trying to avoid the consequences of death. In my opinion, this was precisely postponed by the development of the US Space Program Space is a dangerous place but I hope that in some cases it will be understandable that the mission would be more important in this case. If we accept this, all the processes will be avoided by the astronauts, move much faster, "explains Petraneks.
Errors are as important as success
NASA very much hopes that SpaceX mission will be the first to reach Mars, as it can afford errors as a private company, says Petranex. One of the biggest challenges to focus on the first person on Mars is the ability of a spacecraft to climb and fall vertically or "on the tail". It is imperative that spacecraft can reboot and return to Earth. Fuel and electricity issues must also be tackled.
The Isoon Mask SpaceShock triggers are increasingly proving their capabilities. The first Falcon Heavy launcher was launched in February this year, which confirmed with its capability to deliver cargo in a "geostationary" or GEO orbit about 36,000 miles above the Earth. Generally, launch devices can only carry their cargo, such as satellites, to the orbit of the transmission, from where the satellite must pass to the GEO orbit. These achievements are essential for current military and communication needs, but will in the future be inseparable from reaching Mars.
"When SpaceX sends the first heavy Falcon rocket to Mars, the first people will try to build the rocket upright after four or six years on the Red Planet. If it can not go down, it will break into pieces or any space exploration organization – NASA , The European Space Agency, etc. – can learn a lot from this, and then we will make a significant step forward. Everyone hopes that representatives of this private research program will come to Mars for the first time and that others will be able to learn their mistakes, "said Petranex .
According to the expert, NASA's immediate plans anticipate that by 2030 its space ship will circle around Mars. "I assure you that SpaceX will be on the surface of Mars at this time and that it will take people," says Petanex.
